Stopped working. Live tile doesn't update. When it does open, can't see content of any article.

No longer fetches new articles. Come on, I know you guys hate Microsoft but that's no reason to abandon loyal readers.

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.

Not Loading any Content

after a year of using this app it suddenly stopped working. the content isn't loading anymore. it all started with an update (I think). Im using the Lumia 950 and Windowsphone 10 Other then that there is a problem displaying some content like ICYMI. I used it for a year for a reason. Its a good app and I like what the folks at engadget are doing.

Used to use this app every day. Appears to now be broken with developer having no intention of fixing it. Shame.

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!
