    Probably the best site-specific app I have ever used. Great presentation which really exploits Modern UI's text-centric nature.
  • by Alex 11/08/2014
    Since last update to "optimize" app the text is just too small in the comments section- surely the text should be made BIGGER not smaller if I have a big screen- that's after all why I bought my 1520, because my former 4,5" screen phone was giving me eyestrain! Other then that its a good app.

    Must have for any Windows Phone enthusiasts

    There's no shortage of words written about Windows, but there's certainly a shortage of great Windows news apps. There's WPC, &... If you want Windows news get this app, there's simply no competition.

    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
