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.

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.

Since Engadget updated their website in late 2015, this app no longer functions.

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.

Not working in Win 10 Mobile

Loved the app while it worked but it's suddenly no longer loading articles in Windows 10 Mobile for me. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. (Update: Still not working in Win10 on my Icon so I've given up on Engadget. Luckily the Windows Central app works great and gives me more pertinent information anyway. I suggest you try it)

Broken for more than a month

Doesn't do anything at all, is stuck on a thanksgiving article and nothing else shows on the app, new articles and other sections are just blank pages, photo galleries is the only thing working, I opted for the mobile website but that is also broken, the images of the article blocks the headline of the article, becoming annoying and pushing me to look for another tech news site.
