Best Windows 8 Apps

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.

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.

The live tile caught my eye because it was flipping through headlines. I saw one about the discovery of an earth-like planet. So I clicked on the tile and waited (an unacceptable amount of time) for the app to launch. However, the article I was interested in was no where to be found.
I scrolled through a few pages of content then decided to try and click into the category of science in the hopes of finding the piece about an earth-like planet.
The app crashed, and I uninstalled it.

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.

I have just installed it and we can see the magic!!
All good stuff into 1 place ...
thanks to the producers of this app.

Just needs multitasking so you can hop to another app and still listen to the audio (or video with audio) while browsing other apps. Then this app would be perfect.

All of the quizzes won't work . 😣 update please ? 😊
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

ok, so I just installed it and as far as I can tell there is now way to search you question or what you want to know. If it isn't already a feature to do that it would be nice to put that in a future update

The app launches, and it works for the stuff on the frontpage. But, it never loads search results, rendering that function nearly useless.

I see quite a few complaints about the app crashing, not loading, etc., but so far I've run error free. Lots of great info and easy to use! Definitely worthwhile if you don't have the issues some are reporting.

portions of the content display nicely, but the app consistently crashed , and on some times consistently displayed the unable to connect to the internet message.
12 June 2013
It used to work. Now it crashes. It won't get past the first page.

The app doesn't allow the controlling function to work correctly.

I so love "stuff to blow your mind"! I am listening to the podcast on my Windows Phone and I am thrilled about the Windows 8 app! Thanks!

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

I was so excited for this app and every time I try to open it, it crashes and goes back to my home screen. I'm going to keep it for a little while longer and just wait for the update that will hopefully fix the problem.

The app will not play audio for me. I can play video and do all the other features fine, however
