    Great and reliable app for all the windows phone in the entire Store. Only one problem is the live tile is not being updated.

    I expected a lot more polish from the official WPC app, especially when it's not free. The news posts force you to "show in browser" to read a full article and even view/post comments when there is a "comments" section in the app, which is broken. And the website formatting is seriously broken in IE. Disappointing.

    Amazing app. Been using this app since I had an HD7 (2010) Number one used app on my phone. No negatives, perfect 5.

    Excellent way to access wpcentral. It's simple and elegant with lots of features. It'd be great if landscape mode was added. Or even better if it rotated with the phone.
