Best Windows 8 Apps

Needs to be updated.. Breaking News redesigned their entire site, but this app has none of the sites new features or layout

Very simple, works well and is easy to use. It is in snap view right now and I can see the news change as it happens while I am writing this. Well done.

Love the idea of a breaking news app but font way to small for older eyes.

It seems silly to have a breaking news app without a live tile on the start page updating with the latest news flash. Please add this for 5 stars!!

Simple and easy to use. Wish you could change what type of notifications you receive, though.

Why on earth would a user want to click on a 90 character headline to open a news item that's the same 90 character sentence??? ...too many items link to utterly useless, one sentence Tweets. Thanks for abdicating your entire journalistic responsibility, American media.
What is the difference between an orange article, and a white article? Your guess is as good as mine...
App suppresses the print function, for no discernible reason.

Unless you have application open or docked news unseen is pointless. Needs a live tile to scroll through the latest news updates.

Great app, just needs a live tile with the current top stories

It is good for showing all of the latest news and the global map is nice. HOWEVER, the Live Tile stopped working with the last Windows 8.1 app update. When it did work, the Live Tile's font needs to be smaller so that you can read the entire headline.

The name of this app is misleading. This is really only a Twitter extension, not an actual news site. The inability to access actual news stories related to each headline without leaving the app and tracking it down online killed my interest in it.

Font too small

No longer works. Headlines haven't updated. The app itself hasn't updated either . They only update droids and ios.

I enjoyed this app when I had it. Now it's claiming it's my app but I don't see it on my start screen. WHERE DID IT GO???
14 April 2014
does not even work:(
11 April 2013
Needs other improvements as well, like the logo and use of accent colors though
20 October 2015
I don't care about VW or sports or the Kardashians. I just want news. Now I can't get rid of your useless app.

AS MY STANDARD MORNING ROUTINE, I AUTOMATICALLY GO TO YOUR APP FOR THE FASTEST UP TO THE MINUTE ACCURATE REPORTING OF THE DAYS IMPORTANT EVENTS..THANKS SCF

No live tile-No updates-No options

TMZ depresses me. There is no way in your app to a personal stream. Windows 8 Metro app lacks the controls of the iPhone app.

SOME ARTICLES OFFER SKETCHY DATA,IE:LOCATION,TIME ETC.

Why does the Windows 8 app only go back two hours? The Android and IOS apps go back much farther. I don't want to open up a web browser to the main web page! Give us more detail. I don't check the app that often sometimes.

.... I could change the colors of the "tiles" that the stories appear in. I have no problem with the white, but orange makes people hungry. I want them to be RED like everything else that I like.

should be able add categories like on phone version.
Installed twice with same results! Blank screen with the lovely
orange "Breaking News" heading. That was all!!
A wasted effort.....

The live tile now makes this a five star app.
10 April 2014
text is too big
27 March 2014
Doesn't snap properly on Windows 8.1
22 March 2014
...more settings and controls over what news is presented.

No functionality like iPad version. It is fast and fluid, however.
