Mediocre at best

No ability to up or down vote comments and other issues Have to agree with other reviews. The writing quality on the site has been reduced to blind cheerleading with poorly written puff pieces by a guy with a huge ego.

Great UI but...

Why on earth can't I view images just by tapping on them? It is utterly ridiculous that I have to go use a link post-article to view images. Unacceptable.

Essential for any new Windows Mobile/Surface Pro user

This app is my go-to resource for tips and relevant Microsoft/Windows news and analysis.

Great, but no font customization

This is a great app, but needs ability to change size of font. Also, they used to improve and update it frequently. I haven't seen/heard of and updates or plans for years. I am a paid WC WP8.1 app user and also asked via their contact us about future development plans. They have not responded. Still, this is a great app.

It's now too old

Being one of the biggest (possibly even the biggest) source of Microsoft related news and updates around the world, this app receives very little, close to no support. the website keeps getting regular updates, but this app is now quite obsolete and clunky. it cant even show things as simple as hyperlinks. its been going on the same since the olden days of windows 8. now that W10 is here, hopefully there will be a newer universal app...

Great content, mediocre usability

This app one of my favorites on Windows Phone (its’ so good it should be in the ROM). After discovering that it was a universal app I installed it on my Windows PCs. The content is exactly what you'd expect but the usability and layout is just okay. Clicking on an article in the horizontal layout opens in full view. Unfortunately, clicking on the left arrow back icon takes you the leftmost article--in other words to the start where the first article is. This is bad if you read more than a couple of the newest articles since you have to then scroll to the right to get back to the vicinity where you just were. I read 1 or 2 articles at most before giving up on desktop app. Other issues: the Live Tile and search don't work. The app on WP is much better as it never loses your location and in doing so encourages you to look at lots of articles. I'm going to keep using the WP app as my go-to app.

Support High Resolution Screens

The app is good and the content is great but I can barely read it on my Dell XPS 13. Please support high resolution screens or obey the scaling preferences in Windows.

Windows 10

We need a Re-design so that it can match with windows 10
