Finally moving away from Flipboard

This app is perfect. It’s simple to use and gorgeous to look at. I never thought I would change my news app but this app made me change my mind in first use. I’ve used so many news app but never stuck to them for more than a day. This app just feels best at the moment. Do whatever just don’t mess the UI.

Good app but crashes a lot; needs more polishing

This is a good app but requires a lot of polishing to emerge as one of the top news app. Two immediate irritants are - the launch design is irritating and frustrating with Microsoft News coming in different languages; the app crashes a lot while launching the app. For selecting the news subjects, one has to go to “search” icon to make changes though it should have been part of settings. The app could be developed and designed in a much better way, especially considering that it’s Microsoft product.

Simply better than Google news

Thus app has been amazing. The Google app after makeover works pathetic. This app is best in market which offers good designs and better news than Google news.
