Best Windows 8 Apps
24 August 2016
About 2/3 of the time I get a message saying it's down for maintenance. I don't have this problem on Android or my Windows 10 PC.

Why can't I find the tile streaming stories easily? I click on the app for the teaser and can't find it. Should be easy especially for straight forward category like sports, film, or music.

Yeah its a great news aggregator, however be warned: the live tile flashes stories and if you click on them you will only come to the main page and it'll take you 10 minutes searching through the app to find the story you wanted. Very distracting and a waste of time when you cannot see exactly what you clicked on for.

Tepid ap doesn't have a place to login to an existing account. All you can do is create a new account or link it to Facebook. I already have an account. So I can't create a new one. And, I NEVER link things to Facebook. Looks like I'll have to find an alternative to using clipboard.

I have to log in every single time I use Flipboard in Windows.
I contacted Flipboard support and they basically shrugged their shoulders and quit replying to my emails.
Not recommended- they could care less about their users.

Font is too small and can not be adjusted. What fool designed this 'reader'?

this app sucks for windows
12 January 2016
I didn't even ask for this program but it just started taking over my computer on startup. No information or settings in the app or Windows 8 to adjust. Have to hard-quit it every day.

Is so bad compares to ios and android version

When a live tile shows a news and I click on the tile the app opens at random content and not on the news from the tile. Please fix it

very wondurfull app best working
11 November 2015
but... sadly like most of microsoft's "apps" it needs some work. does alright though, so I gave it some slack and an extra star to go along with it.
Has some bugs that need to be fixed.

Cannot enlarge the font size, which is too small for me. Moreover, I cannot copy the text in the news.

This is a great app on the desktop.
You need to let the thumb swipe to go back to the magazine work with Microsoft touch mouse. Many times I want to go back a page and it makes me go to the home screen.

Without offline, this app doesn't make much sense.

I'm using this app on my android tablet and smartphone. Awesome app it is. Flipboard has done the same with Windows too. :D Love this app!

The developers have been listening and I can now better utilize flipboard via Windows 8.1, and well as via my android devices. Who needs a slow HTML browser! Extremely happy with this program, which has become my go-to for "social media" simce mixing superficial meme-laden social media with my desire to read about my interests just does not always work. I now have my fluff/smile apps and my true interest app....Flipboard (Which now works fantastically, in case I did not mention it.)

taking long time to update
20 September 2015
Does not take full advantage of Windows Universal Apps (syncing, account settings). Does not allow the setting of font sizes or zoom levels for high resolution displays (or at the very least take into account the users system display text scaling). Does not allow permanent setting of View on Web as a default.
I'll stick to the web site version until these issues are addressed.

I cannot share to any social media. my screen is not touch and I can't disable Tablet Mode
5 September 2015
I have this on my android devices and like it but, I can't login with my Google Account for this version. I don't have my account connected to Facebook and it won't let me use my Google information to log in.

This version of Flipboard is not good at all compared to the android and mobile version! It's too slow and it freezes up!
