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.

Articles are not loading, making the app virtually useless.

CNET Deja vu

The main "Featured" section of the app is blank/loads nothing. Swiping to other pieces, they seem to be there though. It's like a badly broken alpha build got released. Things appear to be marked for release but, never got finished. And here I thought I have something to look forward to.

This app hasn't been working since windows 8.1 and still isn't. Don't even waste your time downloading it.

App is dead after site redesign.

It appears engadget has abandoned this app, it has been months since they redesigned thier website and the app stopped loading. The android app still works though so it would appear they are pulling the plug on windows app.

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!
