    Easily the best Windows news app. Daniel is a fantastic writer and they have other great journalists too! Been following this site since WP7 and never looked back. Bought the app to show my support for what they do.

    If you can decipher the half-baked wording in most of the articles, then you may find some decent rumors or weekly summaries. Personally, I can't take it any more. Goodbye.

    This is by far the slickest Windows Phone tech news app that I use. I use it many times a day and the content presentation is close to perfect.

    I am not the biggest fan of the design of this app. It looks old school. But the level of functionality is just mind blowing! It has detailed options for everything! Very true to the philosophy of Windows Phone! Amazing! I wish they make the design slick and beautiful like their website. 5 stars! 👍
