    Nice experience, however frustrating that all the links for "app users tap here" are not functional for wp users

    Live tile does not update, is too small and not transparent will remain down the bottom with the other ugly apps. Other than that the app is great.

    Great app. Would be better is you could select a dark theme for reading articles to increase battery life.

    Being in the USA, it is very refreshing to get different world perspectives. NZH does a great job at this. App works great except live tile does not work for me. Thanks for a view of life from your part of the world. Update: 8/25/13 Upon further tinkering with app, discovered how to get live tile to work, pin it from within the app itself, not from app list. Yea, now all is well.😁

    Good app so far, but need share to email feature not just social.
