I hate the recent change of adding a picture to every article. Some advertisement I really couldn't care less for.
So, I am jumping to Flipboard until NR fixes this. Sad to go, I used to really like NR.

I use this app for getting news on all my Windows devices. It is the best source I have for news. It is the best news aggregator I have found. I use it for all my news. You would be crazy not to download it and use it!
Setting up my screen on the windows 8.1 version of this is very frustrating. They won't go where I put them and I allowed myself to become annoyed by it....

I'm seeing more and more headlines advancing homosexuality of late, so this is clearly the emphasis of the maintainers of this app. This app works OK, but its feed management is clearly agenda-driven (what else is new ;^).
My primary concerns with most news outlets these days is the complete ignorance of history. News Republic gathers all these sources together, providing the reassuring head-pat for those without historical discernment.

Great way to get the news without others filtering it for you.

Most annoying when you are in the middle of an article.
I LOVE so much about News Republic, but... it does currently have a problem where it quits and closes on its own randomly while I'm trying to read an article. I contacted them and they responded rather quickly, and explained the problem is with an external SDK which the developer is working to correct. I can't fault them for that, and I am impressed by their responsiveness. It's such a great app, I plan to continue using it regularly once the issue is corrected. Unless I'm crazy, though, the HP edition of News Republic seems stable. so I'm running with that version for now.
Good idea, I don't have to browse through all my news sites on my browser anymore. The app looks very nice and clean. BUT the constant crashing, when it happens is random but it ALWAYS crashes.

Very annoying as you are reading an article and the app closes on yoū

When reading this publication, the app will just stop and disappear - when it wants to. It could be the 4th article or the 40th, it doesn't matter when or where, it just disappears.

Best news reader on Windows

Frustrating to use. Goes to very beginning of contents after reading an article. No options for font etc. Options extremely limited (like most other Metro apps)

I've used News Republic for some time now. I felt the Win8 app wasn't quite as tight as the Android app until today. They fixed the sidebar list which couldn't be persistently turned off until now. When you go to the main screen it will now remember where you were instead of starting off all the way left again forcing you to scroll right. The app has always been easy to use, and very clean.
I've pretty much switched to NR and love these newest changes. I feel it's finally a truly excellent Windows 8 app. Thanks for the work to make this such a wonderful new reading app. Try it, and you're likely to be very happy. Such a clean and easy to use newsreader will remain on top of my app list for a long time.

I'll update my review when this app can be added to my new Win8 tablet. right now all it does is say there's something wrong with their servers and it's been days. the app just says try again or close app without even getting to a basic start screen.
this was my previous review on my Surface when I could actually use the app
I love News Republic and have been a fan for a few years. It looks even better on my Surface tablet and is smoother than ever. It's missing the feature to save an article... or I'm not finding it. I also haven't found a way to easily contact NR like on my WP or android tablet. A few moods and you'll get a five star rating and great review. It's looking better than ever on win8. Thanks for bringing my favorite app to Windows.

If you want your news from the yellow rag called the Huffington Post... this app is for you. If you like to see both sides of a story, you definitely need a different app. I suggest 360 News. You can pick and choose what news you want and aren't a slave to just the news agenda that a small group wants to present to you.

This is a great app for getting just the news you really want to see. I believe I prefer this over Flipboard.
