Really no window 10 yet
Really no window 10 yet and your site exclusively covers windows. Ironic.More
Why there isn't a Windows 10 version of the app?More
Has always been my news app for Windows
Love this app, its been several years that I've been using it. From Sam Sabri to Daniel Rubino and other GREAT writers who take their time out of to reach to us Windows Fan Boy/Girls. Honestly, I check the WC App before my Bing News lol. Its my Morning News Paper lol. Can't wait for the other new version to come, I personally don't want any changes this app is great! Just some performance improvements; which every app craves for. LOVE this app! As I became a Windows Phone user 3-4 years ago, I became it; with this app, and its welcoming and honest people working for this cause. MS should REALLY appreciate what WC is doing for them. Keep it up guys! I'm a fan!!More
But we need the UWP App to appear it's been long enough bring it on. App still looks like 8/8.1 App. Waiting patiently, but "HURRY UP" lol.😁More
Needs windows 10 modern style to it asap.
not going to use. I prefer using the site which has actual style to it. either copy the layout from your site, and revamp this to windows 10 ui. To much text in this app..i like pictures also..like the site has.More
Not a UWP app?
The app has been teased for months and this is what comes out of that? The interface dates back to the Windows 8/8.1 days with the horizontal feed. Overall I've felt the app could have a little more effort in it.More
Smaller screens exist, people
Whoever developed this app needs to take a course in adaptive design or something - I use a 13.3 inch 2-in-1 for my main computing device and the font size in this app is unforgivably small. Of course, there's also no way to adjust the settings to make it larger. None of the other features matter one whit to me if I can't read the text without having my screen five inches from my face.More
Don't like it as much as my phone version
Could be better still like the WP platform better. However, this is THE SOURCE for news, reviews, & advice. You can't beat it...More
But... no Forums?
Maybe I'm missing it, but no forum access? Layout for reading news is great, app works smoothly.More
Needs a much wanted update to refresh the UI as well as browsing experience! C'mon guys..being the popular go-to app for any new related to Windows..This app needs a desperate overhaul to be in sync with the Windows 10 UI!More
