    App has a very convoluted UI. Separate pages for links/videos that appear within articles on the site. Why? It's like taking two buses and a train to get 5 ft down the road. No matter which method I use, I can't login to anything within the app (different error message for each different method). Very sloppily developed, considering the context.

    Very nice app, it's work perfectly

    Took away another star, apps performance still sub par. Your coding skills aren't that good considering more intensive apps scroll with ease.

    The aap has bug it live tile doesn't updates when new news posted
  • by Nathan 11/21/2014
    Ever since the rebranding update, the app constantly crashes or simply doesn't load the news feed. Please fix this. Lumia 925 running 8.1.1 Dev Preview.
