I panicked when it said the old version of the app was
Not available anymore. Thankfully unsearched and found the win 10 version. Fantastic job. Looks great and the news pops up very fast. The notifications work great, are indeed faster then some of my other news feed apps.More
Ability to save to drafts doesn't work unless you close app ... When go to read the the article it then goes back most recent news not back to where you were..... So sometimes you need to back several hours to get to where you were!..... Type is.to light hard to see you need glasses.would like a dark mode... wold like support option in app instead of having to go to store.... and yes have installed anr reinstalled several times across several microsoft 950 phone 10 devicesMore

App repeatedly provides breaking news more quickly than AP website and/or local news apps. Well designed and user friendly.More
Read The latest.
It is great, the pros overshadow the cons. Easy and concise.More
Good app but room for improvement
This is an excellent app. Very different from conventional news apps. You are always on top of the latest news from around the world. However, this is significant room for improvement. 1. Allow the users to add locations foe the parts of the world for which they want emergency alerts and push notifications. I live in Islamabad Pakistan ,ergo, I'm more interested in emergency alerts around my area. 2. The tabs at the bottom are too big and thick. They need to be reduced for more articles to fit on the screen.More

I like knowing how old a story is and where it comes from. Easy to read format. Wide variety of news and sources. Works well with Windows 10. Not intrusive as far as I can tell.More

Fastest source of news on Win10
This app is leaps and bounds faster than other news apps, both with notifications and the feed itself. Very simple clean design. Follow stories to get notified when news breaks about them.More
A little bit confusing
Icons and layout is not intuitive to me. Maybe adding more animations would help. My following topics should sync between devices.More
