    Nice app, keep up a good work MasterDevs! And, although The Verge doesn't give us, Windows Phone users the treatment we deserve, still they are probably #1 tech news site out there

    We need Vox Media to make this app official! Otherwise, very solid application as it implements the "metro" design and behavior pretty well! *There's a typo in the VIDOES (videos) section

    Really like this App. Performs very well and has a great interface. The app is a thousand times better than the mobile site!

    Not Windows Phone 8 friendly.

    Scrolling is a bit too fast like a 120mhz tv... Otherwise fantastic.
