        • Better learning on preferences

          I'm trying to make the news on here specific to tech, I've been very deliberate to 'like' tech industry news and dislike politics, sports, and entertainment news. However after a couple weeks I don't think my hints have sunk in, as I'm now having to be more specific in my dislikes as 'South African Politics' and 'Finding Dory' recommendations come up. Interested to see how the background algorithm or logic actually works, because I've been consistent and it doesn't appear that my broader category preferences have been recognized.

            • This is such an amazing app

              Interests and muting are the best two pieces of functionality in news search ever. It produces real information that is worth your time

              • Newsify app

                Why is it that a multi-billion dollar company like Microsoft can't build a better news app than the Newsify app which is made by a single person? I'm not going to suggest any improvements. All I will say is go check out the Newsify app and take a lot of notes. He has the perfect idea of how an app should be built. Maybe Microsoft should just trash this news app and buy Newsify! I just can't understand how Microsoft could pay anyone to make junk like this.

                  • Highlights page shows irrelevant content, want to be able to mute topics, not only specific sites

                    First thing I see when I open the app is the Highlights page. Right now it primarily lists Topics such as "MIKE PENCE", "OIL" or "RAP MUSIC", among others. Each of those has a main article (takes full width), as well as further "In Depth Coverage" (a list of articles I can scroll to left and right).

                    When I click a topic name it takes me to a separate search results page with that topic name pre-filled and results grouped by News, Groups and People. There's also a separate box with a little checkmark, if I click it it will…

                    • The in-app feedback is powered by Uservoice. You can go to the web version to edit or delete you idea, comments or profile.

                      This isn't obvious and isn't shown in the app anywhere. I used the in-app fedback feature, but then wanted to edit my comment, and couldn't. I figured out that the system is powered by Uservoice, and you can sign in on the web and manage your profile at https://microsoftgarage.uservoice.com/forums/336966-news-pro

                      Use the email that you had on your profile when you first used the feedback section, it will send you a link to the password reset page.

                        There is a web version of the app, and still, it´s no properly advertised. Give the nature of the articles, is natural that many of us ended reading the articles in a computer.

                        • Bring back Tea Break

                          After the latest update the Tea Break section is gone. I loved the fact that there was a break from the mundane business news with a section that could give me a laugh. New Viral Videos section is not the same.

                          • News source control

                            Have a way to control the source of the news. Lot of time, love the subject presented, but hate the source. Ways to exclude certain source, or a way to 'thumbs down" on certain source.

                              If I like any post or news and if I don't have time to read all in that current moment then I be saving to read later. I didn't get to see that feature in it and overall it's really good.

                                      Offer option to use Microsoft account to login for personalization. For those of us with Cortana notebook setup, it can be integrated into Cortana interests and suggestions.

                                      • Add ability to share to a browser

                                        No browsers are shown in the sharing menu. In Apple News and Reeder, I can either open articles in the browser or save them as browser bookmarks. This allows me to later read them at my desktop and is particularly useful.

                                        • Change "Share" Behaviour for iOS

                                          Instead of making users click to share and then only offering "Facebook" as the only visible sharing option - and hiding the default iOS sharing behaviour behind another button - either use the default share behaviour available in iOS for your sharing button (as any normal user would expect), or make 2 sharing buttons: 1) default iOS sharing, and 2) a unique "quick share" button that a user can set to Facebook, or any other service they choose (such as LinkedIn, for the typical business user).

                                          Hiding the default sharing behaviour of iOS is confusing to casual users. Please change…
