    :(. Used to be a great app. I sent error logs showing that the app force closes whenever I try to open an article and no one has bothered getting back to me. I've also tweeted to windows central regarding this to no avail. I love you guys, please start caring. Also, a filter to hide the non-phone stuff would be great.

    Paid for the app but cant sign in. Sent an error report to the dev bit no acknowledgment yet and it has been a few days. Very poor impression though the app does the potential to be a good one.

    Very professional app, with good forum and comment integration. Loses a star as the live tile doesn't seem to want to update properly and another as crashes every time I try and log in to leave comments etc.
