    Great app, I loved it. One thing, the live tile is not working, should I set something before? Thanks, Jeremy.

    Love it but would like to be able to see more stories per subjects.

    Awesome App, the only suggestion is that if links could open inside the app and have a readability type thing so its easier to read

    I have had this app since the 920 came out and its the most basic app of its kind I could find but it is soo slow going back. Plus the developer never updates this app
