I suggest you ...

Add an visual indicator when refreshing feeds

The old app had the dots to indicate when the app was refreshing. This one hides the articles and gives the impression that it's stuck.

        can you create a icon for sign in, so it can easily be assessable. I still can find where to log in. thanks

        Yes add haptic feedback on article list refreshes, not just opening of an article.

        I also think that when the app is starting you never know if it is doing something or hang up on you as there is no indication for the viewer.

        Essentially a prominent indicator should be shown the the app is working and I think also that there should be a article can loaded so that the user at least has something visually.

        The app just starts updating...I think... and the article tiles start animating. The app is completely unresponsive for more than 10-15 seconds. Unacceptable

        Add vibration after recent articles loaded. Similar to the WC 8.1 app.

        Yeah, we need the visual loading indicator on the top just like what Windows Phone apps usually does (well base on guidelines).

        This should apply to any activity that is well, loading. Its good user experience to let user know that the app is working.

        I just want also to add pull-down refresh just like the old Windows Central app for Windows Phones. This should also apply to comments, especially that the comment system is still not real-time.

        Maybe the refresh icon could start spinning when the app refreshes the feed

        @Pranav the next update is going to add it. Why don't you focus on your MSPU app? It hasn't got any update except for the name change since it was released and it's not better either. At least they are responding to our feedbacks and updating the app frequently.

        To be honest, this part is the easiest to add in the app. They should get their shit together if they cant do this.

        A progress ring in the center of the screen or a progress bar in the system tray/top of screen would be nice. good work guys!
