The app search using window key+Q is really slow even with a 100mb connection at school, and the background makes the app a little leggy scrolling across the main screen for some reason even with a decent laptop like my surface pro... it's fun though a lot of good stuff to be found since it IS How Stuff Works data after all. :)

Love the app but the search (using charms bar) could be made faster.

I love listening to all the hsw podcasts wherever I am!

If only I could "bookmark" and/or "continue" unfinished episodes. Too hard to scroll through to find what I was listening to the day before (esp. if driving). Otherwise, keep up the good work.

This app has potential, but for now its terrible. It needs a search bar for starters. The website does, so why not the app? The grid view is horrible! You can only read the first 2.5 words of the title. So since you can't search for what you're looking for, you have to scroll through a grid of articles you aren't really sure of until you click on them! Apps are supposed to make things easier... Failure! I'll stick to the browser until this is a proper app.

Outdated videos. "How to fix a floppy disk"? "Get internet in hotel room by connecting to the phone for dial up"? Haha!

This is the equivalent of TRIVIAL PURSUIT for your mind.I especially like the quotes,and geographical facts. Read for 5 min a day and you can annoy your friends for a week, read for 2 weeks and you will be alone.

That's the question........what is the answer with everyones recent moronic switches in technology you have made everyone vulnerable to hacking and impermissible use of private property now I can't download things because you have to lock it allup tighter than a drum so no one can steal it??? im sorry but I would really like to have my information and computer secure.....windows 8? not your best idea to date Microsoft. WTG! Sincerely, Jo-Anne Davis

All of the quizzes won't work . 😣 update please ? 😊
22 July 2013
quizzes don't work

Sorry, but the very first article I read (about important contributions by African American engineers) contained an incorrect reference of trailblazing involving lighting a fire to create a trail. Nothing to do with it, check your facts. A "blaze" is how the English referred to a bright colored diamond shape on a dark horses forehead. When explorers marked a trail, they used an axe to create a similar shaped wound in the bark of trees. Thus, trailblazers. You need to allow feedback.
a few bugs,
1) quizzes are frozen when I open up a quiz it doesn't get past the first picture when I hit start.
2)the live tile has a story and when I click on the app I can't find the story. even if I try to look it up in the search. It would be nice if any of the stories you are promoting via the live tile would instantly boot to that story or have a tab to connect to it
3) wish there was an auto play on the videos so you could just automatically go to the next one. maybe a play all feature
