Bring on a Windows 10 Universal app

Finally cnet finally!! Great work. I'm hoping for consistent updates and support. Two thumbs up! 2/15/2015 - I withdraw my previous comments above and now ask. Where are the updates? :( Lowering my score from 5 to 2 8/6/2015 - And here we have it. An update has finally come. What can I say? It's at least stable now. There doesn't seem to be any design changes that I can notice. No change log too. It's nice to know though that this app isn't abandoned. Hoping for a fully featured Windows 10 app in the future. Bringing up my score to 3 7/2/16 - Engadget released their Windows 10 universal app months ago. I hope your team is working on a new app that takes advantage of the universal platform. Looking forward to it.

Pictures never display correctly, the app crashes on startup a lot of the time. It still needs a lot of work. Please update more often!

Love CNET, but I CAN'T READ IT!!!

Love CNET for all the useful info, but the fonts on this app are miniscule. Please make it bigger so I can read it more easily?

Needs Windows 10 Update

The fonts used in this app are way to small with no way to make them larger . This is a real problem on my Dell Venue 8 Pro. It's now 12/24/15, and the app has not been updated. In addition, the app stopped opening on my Venue 8 Pro with Windows 10.

I'm admittedly a CNET power user and big fan. Unfortunately, the app doesn't let you copy a portion of text so can share a relevant quote along with the link. Also, unlike the mobile site, you can get one stream of all articles... Mobile site's latest news includes articles, videos, reviews... Hence 3 stars Glad to see they are still pushing updates in 2015.

Great website, lousy Windows app

The number of articles that open incorrectly is amazing... for a tech site. I visit the website more than once daily. Would love to see the Modern app work better. 8 April 2015 update--I have grown so tired of the poor loading in this app that I am deleting it in favor of CNET's own website. Still like CNET, still think the Win 8.1 app is not nearly as good as it could be.

Recent improvements -- moving towards usability!

I've always been fascinated at how a technology "authority" could publish an app with such glaring bugs and inconsistencies. However, this is all-too-common in the Windows app world. I rarely if ever used the CNET app because graphics were missing, links didn't work, or the organization of the information was impossible to navigate. Within the last several days I've noticed a marked improvement that may entice me back. I see graphics appearing in the right places now, and it appears that some links may work now. I'm cautiously optimistic that CNET's app designers may pay attention to the Windows Universal app and create a really useful experience soon.

Needs comments like mobile web site. Needs to scale fonts better for lower resolution screens. Mobile site is better except I can't offline mode content... I appreciate the effort. Please update. Please make the app universal.
