Difficult reading

The problem with reading the news is that I have to keep scrolling left and right. Make the article fit the reading view so there is no scrolling left or right.

Hard to use on small screens

On my Asus 11.6" Vivobook, too much of the screen is used by the very spacious list of articles on the left side of the screen, leaving too little room for the actual articles. This forces me to scroll left and right constantly to read the full text of the article. There needs to be a way to squeeze down the left side list of article and provide room to see the entire article without scrolling. unusable as is.

Needs lots of work

For a tech news company - this app is pretty horrible. It's just a collection of boring looking tiles that bring you to a story. At minimum, the tiles should at least have an image from the story or the author. Just use your web browser until Cnet fixes this embarrassment of an app.

Grid/Tile presentation

I like Cnet new but I do not like the grid only presentation. Most Windows 8 news/information apps seem to be presenting the data in Tile format only. This looks nice for some things but is difficult to browse/scan for interesting information. It has the list view on other platforms.

horrible interface

This looks like a 5 year old created this app. Works nothing like the CNET tablet App. All the Story Thumbnails are just CNET logos, which makes it more confusing. Also, when you Click on a story, the Navigation gets all flustered....This App Needs someone to actually program it to work.

Slow

App is very slow to load. When it does, the article is not formatted correctly to the size of the column so you can't read entire sentences. Seems like a lot of wasted space, lazy design.

needs some polish

the story tiles have identical graphics. when I navigate to a story the article isn't resized for the space inside the app, so it's mostly unreadable.

Just meets the bar.

It would have been good if they could have displayed pics from the news page instead of the big cnet icons in the tiles. Also, the color used to highlight a selected article on the left plane- i.e purple to highlight black text violates any readability principle. They could improve on that to enhance readability experience. It would be a struggle to read the black text against the dark purple background for a lot of folks.

Missing the Metro Idea

When the app is snapped and an article is displayed, the view of the article is unreadable. The author of this app needs to understand the Metro design principles better. The lack of meaningful pictures for articles makes the UI not very appealing for me.

Not very appealing

I enjoy reading CNet on my iPad but would love to see it in Windows 8. This app seems to have been thrown together quickly. It has no visual appeal and is confusing because of the way the articles are laid out in various subsections. I'll leave it installed for awhile to see if it gets updated in the near future, but for now its very disappointing.
