I just changed phone from W10M to an Android device but I still want to be updated with news about Microsoft, Windows etc. Good thing there's a Windows Central app on Android! I really like the interface especially the night mode.
Working better since the last update bit far more complicated that on Windows phone( anyone remember them? )
App never automatically updates articles! I want to start by saying I love this app on my Surface Pro 3 and Desktop PC, and up until recently, my Windows Phone. I recently swapped to an Android phone (OnePlus 3) and duly installed all my favourite apps and MS services. I have found that whilst this is still the same quality app I use elsewhere, it will never update unless I physically empty the app cache through settings. I am now using Nougat 7.1.1 which has made no difference. 😟
Slow load times really hurt this app It is surprising to see how slowly this app will load an afternoon's content (maybe five articles) vs. the Android Central app loading 19 days worth of content in the same amount of time. I'm finally uninstalling this app and will be relying on the far faster Windows 10 version.
I only rated 3 stars because I'm a fan of WC but the app is really annoying. Refreshing of the homepage is a serious problem. News always have to reload, unlike in windows phone where you can read preloaded news with pictures.
Welcome black After the AC update I'm very glad to see the black backgrounds making their way to the Windows Central App too! And even though lately the website itself has been just a dumpster of Minecraft articles and delusional editorials about WP not being dead when everyone knows that it is, there are still some nice articles there about Windows and Xbox which make it worth the read.
