    Cubic News, a fantastic new free app.

    Hi guys,
    I wasn't entirely sure this was the proper place to say this, so if its not, I apologize in advance.
    Several partners and I have just finished developing a new app and we wanted input from anyone willing. This includes advice and tips for improvement as well recommendations on how to generate buzz.

    We strive to make Cubic News a free Windows 8 app that provides breath-taking news of the highest quality along with images of similar quality. Major themes and topics include but not limited to financial news, sports news, global news and tech news. It features three ideal settings for delivering content and allows the user to swiftly look through breaking news or to slowly peruse topics.

    We decided to not use the standard pre packaged layouts because we found them rather tawdry and overused, so we decided to make our own interface with different transitions.

    Not a bad app. I like the different layouts. It needs more quantity of stories, a quicker interface, and videos would make it more attractive. Also there is no personalization available, really a must in news apps. Not a bad 1st effort.

    Thank you very much for your input. We have considered your input and we have incorporated it in the latest release. We have increased the both the frame rate of transitions and made design changes to improve the look of the interface. We are currently working with ge a license with Reuters to improve the news quality and we are working on various improvements to include personalization, but understandably this will take time. In several months videos will also be available. The new release is now available to download. If you have any further input please don't hesitate, its extremely useful.

    It is definitely quicker now. A few more improvements and this app will be very nice. Still could be quicker ui transitions but it's good to see such rapid response from developers.

    We have worked to make the ui quicker in the latest update and fixed image distortions along with several minor bugs.
