    The current update has been unable to open if it does it crashes and I have sent the log through email. But overall it has been a great complement to the website. I have been unable to open it since the last update

    Excellent app. Cannot live without it. Sadly, with latest update, the new pull to refresh is very wonky, and hardly ever works - multiple tries are needed, and then, only works quarter of the time. Still a 4 star app tho, 5 when it's fixed. Oh, and yep, I've tried a clean install ;-) Nokia Lumia 1020, running Windows dp 8.1

    Was reading WPC long before I got a windows phone. Very informative. Well worth the money. If you haven't got this app already, download it now.
