    Able to read about apps and updates, but this App has yet to receive updates, one star 🌟 till App starts focusing on itself as they do other Apps , more like " Review Central "

    A well done app for catching all the latest Windows news and action in the forums. Nice clean Metro UI, gorgeous lock screen and live tile support. The articles still mostly suck though.

    I ******** love this app. I can keep up with all information regarding Microsoft products, Windows products, etc. It's extremely responsive and organized and I love that it also allows access to the WC Forums no problem. 5/5

    Was once such a good app now crashes too or lags,disconnects from passport, pull to refresh does not work, live tile counter stops working after a couple of days. Why can't we vote on polls within the app.
