The Verge is one of the biggest online publications in the tech world and their site works 'OK' under Windows 10 Mobile and Edge - but it's not great and I'm still going to welcome a full UWP application for Windows 10, albeit from a third party developer. It works perfectly with Windows 10 Mobile ad even Continuum displays. There's even a working live tile - and it's all free, so what are you waiting for?
There's a bit of a USA focus for the content, of course, but you expect that from a USA-based publication.
The Verge covers the intersection of technology, science, art, and culture. Its mission is to offer in-depth reporting and long-form feature stories, breaking news coverage, product information, and community content in a unified and cohesive manner.
- adaptive UI, which looks good on different screen sizes;
- ability to display news in list view or grid view;
- indicator of new news;
- ability to choose light or dark theme;
- live tile (works on Windows 10 Desktop, Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone 8.1 devices only).
Some screens of The Verge News UWP in action on my IDOL 4 Pro:
With four tabs covering 'home', 'trending', 'categories', and 'video', most of the site is covered and in splendid style - swipe between tabs, they wrap round if needed, and all further controls are within thumb reach at the bottom; (right) note that there occasional adverts disguised lightly as stories, as shown on top here. So be careful of those, as you're then booted off to Edge!
Digging down into a story - it's all there but without any reader comments - for those, there's a control to open the full page on theverge.com; (right) browsing the article categories, with suitable header graphics.
The videos section has loads of good content and videos can be rotated to landscape as needed; (right) there's live tile action, cycling through recent stories and headlines.
