The highly rated Metro UK newspaper app for Windows Phone is currently experiencing issues and is not successfully pulling down content from the Metro website. This is a confirmed problem and one the developer has been working on. We're pleased to relay that an update is well on the way that will fix everything up.
When inquiring about issues with the app, here's the response we received:
"Sorry you are experiencing some downtime with the Metro app on your Windows phone. You might have noticed the recent change to metro.co.uk. Because of this we have had to change how the app handles the content feeds, an update for which is currently in approval with Windows."
Unfortunately the app has been receiving negative reviews on the store due to the problems that have arisen. The cause is the newspaper's new website, which requires the Windows Phone app to be altered to handle new content feeds. As the app update is required to be submitted and approved by Microsoft, it's taking some time for it to roll out.
If you're a frequent Metro app user, fear not as an update is well on the way. It's available on the Store for free.
