    Annoyingly slow and laggy. Nice interface but missing some key things like customization and sources. Needs some work.

    Very low amount of content. Font is too small and it struggles to deliver a good UI.

    Great app, only wish it had a large tile.

    Nice app. Really like the new lock screen updates in WP8. I wish the text wasn't so small. Makes it super hard to read with 40 year old eyes.

    Great layout, but impossible to read by anyone with less than perfect vision.
