Abandoned and no longer functions at all.

This app has been abandoned as it must of been over a year (from writing) that this app has stopped working displaying and showing nothing. Recently got windows 10 and decided to reinstall it to see if it has been fixed but it clearly hasn't been looked at -if even remembered by the developers. Don't install as you will just immediately uninstall it. It really should be removed from the app store. At least they could do that.

Comments, videos, and podcasts have been out of working condition for a while because a "comment system upgrade." Even worse, their website crashes when scrolling through their pages, so no comments there either. More sad news: No new post have been listed since December 1st in this app. The app either needs to be updated or pulled. Come on Engadget!

Nice app for tech news and updates, daily, however fails to update its news after a week or so. I've faced this problem even after reinstalling it twice, which city me my time as well as data. Would've given 5 Stars of there wasn't this issue.

CLUMSY, unlike the iOS version!

>>Open with at least 12 topics in the list before I have to hit 'Load More' - 5 or 6 are too few. >>Quick genre access menu across top. >>Pics and video links don't always work. >>Reopen where I left off!!! >>Just copy the iOS version; it's near perfect!

What happened to the pictures? Please put on an option to lock screen rotation built in on the App.

Ok, has not been updated in ages... Comment section simply opens up a browser. Should be integrated into the app. Very disappointing, there are many better tech news apps in the market. Don't waste you time...

This app follows the WP design principles and it allows you to browse through the latest news in tech very quickly.

I've edited my review several times due to drastic changes taking place on every new iteration of this app. I'm glad to say that this is the best version yet; and so I replace my previous 2 star rating. This is a near perfect version. Videos play without issue and load times, while not as fast as before, are acceptable. A future inclusion of a comments feature and a slight bump in speed could put this app at the five star mark in my book.

Great UI, easy to navigate. One star for crashing way too often - totally annoying, going back to www. Still crashing even with updated phone (Lumia 1020). It seems like no matter what device I use, this app isn't stable. 😒

This app is actually terrible. First off, the videos don't play. While they used to just go to a YouTube site that said "Video nit found", now it plays some sound along with the first frame before it crashes the app. Then, you have to wait about 30 seconds for the app to resume. Speaking if resuming, you can't ever leave the app and come back to the same spot because it reloads every time. Absolutely no thought placed into the design and in no way is it any more convenient than just accessing the site from a saved favorite in the browser. Big let down
