The app opens to a advertisement page but does not allow access to the site after that.

As others have noted, the app displays the PopSci logo in the upper left of an otherwise blank screen.

I have this app installed on my machine, and the articles are great. **BUT**, NONE of the videos will play. So I gave it three stars. Then I remembered why I wanted to watch the videos. Reason: Articles are too short and certainly don't have enough information for me to be satisfied at the end of the article. Most of the articles leave me feeling as if I am not getting enough of the story to warrant sharing it with others. Certainly not enough to recommend the Pop-Sci app. Now we're down to two stars. NBC's video works, but NBC sucks. Why can't you put your "tech" guys on it ASAP. Now, down to one star. ADS that block the usability of the app. The only way I can get anything o look like it will work is to quarter-screen it. Looks like the science reporters need some science class for their scientists.

Videos don't play, usually have to load the app a few times before any content populates.

I'm not sure that it worked in Windows 8. I do know that it does not work on the two Windows 8.1 made by different manufactures in my home. I went to the trouble to clear and restore my new HP Envy Intel i7 computer and am still working to put back all my programs. I will say PS does work fine when loaded from the desktop, but it is a different web site. I was told by Best Buy that the Windows 8.1 Start menu does not use Flash while the desktop does. Maybe that's why. Who knows?

very slow to launch and then only loads a few videos. None of the other content loads.

I launch the app, I see the Popsci logo in the upper left corner, but the page is otherwise blank. I've tried refreshing and closing and restarting the app, but same thing. It's just a blank white page.

Recently it appears it just launches, shows two ads and that's it. It used to at least show the articles.

Was this app purposely crippled? I say that because, in the screenshots, it looks like a decently-featured app with articles, video, etc. However, on multiple Windows 8.1 devices, all I get is "Videos" and a POPSCI ad to subscribe today (with social links and stuff), but there are no more articles. If this app doesn't become abandoned and actually gets fixed I will update my review to four stars (which I would've given prior to this issue).

This Win8 is absolutely useless. It only shows the PopSci heading and nothing else. Do not select this ap.

I'm just happy that there's a PopSci app! Can't quite say the same for Windows Phone 8

Make this application update in background. Live tile doesn't update.

Most likely blocked due to geographical location, but you'd think they could at least provide some feedback if that is the case.

This was always a good app, but the most recent update made this app SOO much better. No complaints here.

I love PopSci and I found this app stunningly beautiful, clean, and very productive in way it presents information to the reader. But it lacks some polish to male it an A+ app. Back button doesn't always work, portrait mode needs some work.
