    The onion rocks and this is the best app I've found for getting my onion fix :P
  • by Kent 9/6/2014
    Works great for news, but no infographics, no radio, no video. Going to their web page using IE 11 works best

    How can anyone like this? Not updating with any news at all. My last one is almost a year old

    Many of the stories don't load at all. Of the ones that do load, the wrong photo appears about half the time. Terrible app. The Onion needs to make an official version for WP. I'm on a Lumia 925.

    Links frequently link to the wrong article. Other than that great app!
