App Doesn't Launch

When I open the app, it stays open momentarily and then closes before I can read the individual articles. It is virtually useless. That is why I uninstalled it previously and am going to do it again.




Platform: Mobile

Solidly functional, but it has recently become impossible to find anything but click bait on the news page. Headlines like Greece, wildfires, or proper news in general is not to be seen either on the main page or the news page. I do occasionally enjoy a good OZY story, but it seems to have gotten out of control as of late. Going to have to find a new source for my hard news on my Windows phone.

Would be 5 stars, but the latest release has the following errors: 1: Only 4-5 articles are now showing up per section where there were many more before. 2: Most recent articles and news show pictures on the live tile, but are not showing up to actually read in the app, not sure if just delayed for a few hours or if the app just wont show the items that should be at the top of the list until others are added. 3. Crashes more frequently than normal.

Pretty good app, but it has a few hiccups. The few hiccups in the app include some pictures not displaying properly (cutting of the tops of heads, focusing on the wrong part of the photo); video quality (even on wifi) is usually relatively poor; and the app will on occasion randomly close (although I admit this I quite rare). With all that being said I still use the app pretty much on a daily basis!

Inconsistent video quality. Inconsistent article presentation ( some fit and read nicely on the phone screen while others are simply pulled directly from various websites, many of which are not optimized for mobile users.) Great photos, but where have the captions gone? Really disappointing effort since this used to be the best news app for windows phone.

News quality - its no drudge report, but I wouldn't put it in the category of fox news either. Some filler stories, but what do you expect. App quality - in my opinion, a must-have for any news-ophile who owns a windows phone. Beautiful app with great functionality. My one complaint about it is that it doesn't give you a link to the site in the article. If that could be added, or some way of viewing the comments, then it would be perfect.

I enjoy the variety of content on this app but constantly find articles to be missing content when I click on them. Most Sports articles will have nothing but the picture and it's caption when I open them. I've also had the same issue with some Travel articles. I've been able to access the same articles in their entirety on my iPad through the USA Today app. This issue seems to be isolated only to my Windows phone, even though I stay current with any updates pushed through.

1.1- Thank u, I uninstalled & reinstalled & my world is happy once again! This really is BEST most organized app avail. All sorts of info at fingertips. Love on Samsung Focus! No glitches or ads, just news & weather! *Update 1.2 only worked after uninstall-reinstall-shutoff-turn on. But well worth the tiny effort. update...after loving for long time, im not happy as pictures are not loading. Dropped from 5 to 3 stars

There's no reason to not let the small tile be live. With these bigger screens I don't want to use medium tiles. Please fix this. The previous version supported this. I love the speed improvements, but the tile issue makes me wish I hadn't updated.




Platform: Mobile

Looks great but lots of functionality issues. Refresh doesn't work and you have to back out if the app and reopen to get new stories to load. An orientation lock mode would be nice as well. There's no zoom function in article pictures and the caption is usually missing for some reason. Good effort but no where near ad good as the iOS app.
