    Fantastic tech news app. Awesome live tile too. One of my favourite apps. A must for any tech enthusiast. More sources would be a nice addition however.

    I really like this app. Nice job! Been using it much more than i thought i would. As others have mentioned, a few suggestions from myself in terms of which other sites to draw content from - pocketlint, tomshardware and anandtech might be a good fit.
