    Great app! All the best news on Windows Phone, and now Xbox and Windows as well. Some issues for me: 1) App uses a lot of my battery up...possibly related to how often I use the app, though still seems heavy. 2) My live tile hasn't updated in a very long time. It is stuck on some Sunset Overdrive article. Not sure why, all my other tiles work fine. 3) You still have to view some articles in the web browser because not all content can be displayed in this app.
