11/9/2013I would like to recieve "Rapid News"!!! Please <3 Geraldine Lewis
2/26/2013Annoyingly slow and laggy. Nice interface but missing some key things like customization and sources. Needs some work.
2/19/2013Very low amount of content. Font is too small and it struggles to deliver a good UI.
12/27/2012Great app, only wish it had a large tile.
12/20/2012Nice 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.
11/7/2012Great layout, but impossible to read by anyone with less than perfect vision.
