To developer -With flip book killing Zite , consider prioritizing user guided filtering... that would be huge (i.e. serve me stuff like that stuff, makes for a sticky reader over time). Also, really rude to assume I want an email subscription to the digest it starts sending. I don't recall giving that approval to this app. Even worse, is it requires a login to unsubscribe. I uninstalled the app after playing with it for five minutes and a week later I get these emails... so just unsubscribe right? Must login to do so! Did I use Twitter? Gmail? MSFT account? Other email? Who knows when they all feed through each other these days. Not providing one click unsubscribe from unsolicited email is just not nice. Easy fix. Otherwise promising.

Looks there is decent potential as a news aggregator, but this program is slow to load and run, and crashes far too frequently to be useful, unfortunately. Perhaps it isn't optimized for Surface RT? Most other programs run fine on RT. Can't recommend this program at this time.

The Needs wants to collect information about my friends. Why? Uninstalling.
