The Verge app for Windows Phone

If you are part of the technology world, there is a good chance you read The Verge for getting your fix of news, reviews and their fantastic long reads not only related to technology but also science, art and culture. If want to do that on a Windows Phone though, there are no good options. Until now.

The Verge

Over the last few weekends, I have built a new app for Windows Phone for consuming everything The Verge has to offer. Here are the features it currently supports.

  • Super smooth experience for browsing and reading all the latest news, reviews, features, and exclusives.
  • Read comments posted by The Verge readers.
  • Watch “On The Verge,” “The Vergecast,” “Small Empires,” and more without ever leaving the app.
  • Share news and stories with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, and email.

More features like forums and live tiles are not implemented in the app just yet but I plan to add these over the coming weeks. Feel free to suggest or vote on feature requests on the feedback site. Here is some feedback from the community so far.

Great. The best by far. Great design. Better and more good looking than the android app.

As much as most of The Verge crew don’t like WP, this is a great app to prove how good it can be.

I suddenly feel like we don’t need an official app anymore. Awesome.

Obviously, the app is neither sponsored nor endorsed by The Verge or Vox Media.

  1. This is the best news app i’ve seen on WP so far great work!.
    I would like to suggest an app, medium.com, there is one app in the store which is i think just the mobile version of the website. I dont know if you read medium.com, its a great social media for writers and people like me who loves to read. Just a suggestion. 😉
