Perfect. Dynamic. Interactive. Love it.

Early feedback: The app is a joy to use, non-linear, with the ability to annotate, external references, the contents is extremely well formatted etc etc. Just one thing: Please add a Font Size option. It is very hard to on the device I plan to use it most: A 7-inch tablet with very high dpi. Look at the Bing Wikipedia app, implements the font size wonderfully. Thanks for such useful and gorgeous app. Let the content keep flowing!

Won't download any content!

Tried to download two different titles. Downloading appears, but nothing happens. Tried restarting PC and going back to MSGT app to download again, but no change. Can't comment on the app since I can't download any content. Using Surface 3 with Win 10. Tried on a desktop PC with Win 10 in virtual machine and title downloaded immediately. What's up with the Surface 3?

What, no universal app?

I have a Lumia 1520 WP and this app should be available on it also.

Very Nice

Just scrolling through this and trying some of features, very impressed. It would be nice if you add any MS Press e-book into here, it just seems to function better than any of the readers I have so far.

Crashes on WinRT

Loads for 1min and then it crashes. Good MS quality as normal
