Can no longer view comments

This app has been great for a long tome, but I am no longer able to view article comments on my 950xl. I just keep seeing loading dots, but.comments never load. Uninstalled and reinstalled with same results...

Better than the WM10 app

Although this app doesn't have the Continuum feature of the WM10 app, it works better in almost every way. Where the forums can appear broken in the newer app, everything is much more fluid here.

It needs to be more practical.

Why can't I watch the videos on the app? The app needs more articles, comments, settings' options.

Comments take forever to load

Incredibly awesome app.😊 And yes, it's free. You need to pay if you need to get rid off the ads. 👌 The problem lies when it comes to comments. They take forever to load up, which is weird.

Still the better app

All you need to know is that it works well, has great articles and news info and isn't made for W10M. 🙂 avoid the new app for W10M, it's a broken app. Like with everything else that gets "upgraded" to a Windows Mobile 10 version, we're all better off sticking with 8.1.

Windows Central? More like steam and android central...

Looks like article views are more important than the Microsoft-centric journalism the site used to have.

Great content, forgotten UI

I've used this app to stay on top of WP need since my first WP7 device, and the content is great as always. The app is in need of an overhaul, though, links rarely work and I have to view an article in the browser to do most things any more. Still a handy tool for browsing windows news.

Useful but the app needs some work

The app is very useful. But it has some issues: 1-slow, it's slow when opening the app or an article. 2-there are no links in an article about an app, so I can just click the link and this to redirect to store to download it. For this reasons I'm using the Windows central from Mobile Nations
