    The verge were naughty to close down their api... Especially since the new website is rubbish. This app is great though. Needs more feeds so I can get all my tech news in one place.

    The perfect example of how a windows phone app should be.

    Really nice feature set, only improvement would be an offline reading mode - so you could download articles on WiFi at night ready for the morning commute. Pretty specific request but would be good to see.

    Great app for tech news, especially good for reading the Verge. Swiping to view comments is great too, nicely designed.
