    Good app to stay up to date on WP! Loads slowly sometimes or would be 5 stars.

    Windows, from the beginning, was destined to become a part of our culture. As an axiom i think it is fair to preface that no one media outlet or group of individuals can cover the worldwide Windows phenomenon that ensued in our time as a byproduct of the way this set of tools has become embedded into our way of living on this planet. And yet I feel compelled to sat that the information presented in this application and the obvious efforts of a clearly professional group is worthwhile, well presented and helpful. Please, I urge you to maintain your focus as you continue adding future improvements.

    Wait, why did they pull this app?? Why?

    Still rather hamstrung and sketchy. More useful How To's & some help with what I call Everyday Mysteries: eg. You can't take a screenshot without finessing a tricky Hold1-Touch2-SuperquickRelease1/KeepHolding2-QuickRelease2. While doing this delicate maneuver, watch screen for confirmation and listen for camera shot sound. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ACCIDENTALLY TURN PHONE OFF OR DROP PHONE WHILE HOLDING FINGERS IN EXTREMELY AWKWARD CONTORTION!! You see, it would've been nice to warn new users that they must qualify for the new Olympic™ sport of Screenshotsaving!
