    "try." - "***." & "buy." - "*****.".

    Terrible and frankly embarrassing. The adverts displayed in this app are pure filth. "Try this before w@nking". So wrong and inappropriate. Deleted.

    Why can't all windows phone apps be like this? Fast and great UI! If we had more apps like this windows phone would kill iOS and Android...

    Best windows user center ever

    nice app but a bit slow and the design is terrible, looks like an app for windows phone 7 :/ add polls and comments of the posts... It's your official app and it seems old and fake D:

    As soon as they add a filter to weed out all the non phone stuff I'll be happy. WPC is now WC (yeah, funny) and is 80% Xbox and Windows news. Not in the slightest bit interested in that and yes I get they are a common ecosystem now, I just don't care.
