"Keeps crashing..."

"The app is great but I`m taking two stars away because when you go to leave comments on articles it`s completely broken. You tap a button or something else and it selects something on the opposite side of the screen. Whomever is in charge of the coding for those features should be fired. It`s completely broken, you click leave comment, and then its ``liking`` a comment half way across the page. This needs to be fixed."

"Good curator of news content, but the interface is painfully buggy. Sometimes articles display in an optimized format, other times it just loads a website. Frequently the text renders in the same color as the background and is unreadable. 70% of the time some bug prevents you from typing and posting a comment, including some phantom swipe gesture that skips to the next article without saving what you wrote."

"They really need to fix the uploading of receipts. I never get to upload. Says everything is 14 days old or I have upload enough for 30 days. I haven`t uploaded in almost 2 weeks! I would love to give the app 5 stars bc u have everything u need or want but the receipt thing is dragging it down for me. This is how some people make their extra money."

"Since the last update I have had so many problems. Mainly trying to load the darn thing. After six months I am ready to just delete this app. If I try to share a news item that is of interest to me and my friends, this app does not allow it. So after weeks of reading the story on here then googling the story in order to share, I realized their are better apps and ways to do it without this app. I have been a faithful follower of everything Microsoft for many years. Alas that will be changing."

"Every time I try to click on a news article to read it it`s just a white screen and never loads. No point in having an app that`s going to take me longer to read what I want to read. App also keeping me logged in even after signing out. Telling me I`m signed into another Microsoft app when this is the only Microsoft app I have on my phone. I even went through each app individually just to make sure. Removing app from my phone until issues get resolved or just for good. TRASH APP"

"The only reason I downloaded this was to get $ from scanning receipts. The OCR is terrible, rarely getting the required retailer name, date, and total spent, often requiring retake after retake after retake, just to get 1 cent per receipt. Not worth the trouble, and lord knows how they`re using my personal information, which, I avoid including (e.g., credit card #, name/addr, etc)."

"ref Ms Potas observations regarding John Lewis structure changes. Beautifully expressed.. encompassing the pride in Britain so many foreign companies envy. The Money first people often asset strip in so doing dilute the soul and polite manners. British identity cannot be replicated. Anyone can speak in Malcolm different accents... but it doesn`t represent the soul of what has been a treasured, truly valued British cornerstone ..."

"Was once a good app until they updated it. Now it acts like there is not enough memory to load anything. I cant complete any of the tasks anymore without a 5 minute thing turning into a half hour. I`ll return once its fixed."

"Generic recycled articles and old, outdated news and topics. This is the same problem I have with smart news news break. The only current news topics are things so outrageous and unimportant that I don`t care to view them."

"Everytime i open a news, if i accidentally slide up to scroll, the app goes to the next story and there is NO WAY to go back to the one you were reading."
