    This afternoon, I am unable to open the Windows Central app on either my Surface or my 640. It shows the splashscreen and then crashes. Both of these devices are on the latest build 14379. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but still no luck.

    Is anyone else getting them to work right now?

    Same here. And I've tried the same steps as rider. The homepage is looking a little skewed on my SP3 as well. Glad I'm not the only one.

    Uninstalled, reinstalled, working now on my 950, but it's the old version.

    same here on latest fast ring Lumia 950 xl. All of a sudden this evening would try to launch and just crashes before even launching the screen, just splash screen. Might go back to the old app. The new app hasn't been very impressive so far.

    Yeah, I'm having the same issue on my 950XL. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but didn't resolve the issue.

    yep, same issue here using 950 on latest production build.. app loads to just past splash screen, pauses and crashes (it used to bring up the article pictures but since I re-installed the app its just a blank grey)

    on windows10 pc and on lumia 640 lte. crash! crash! crash! plus I've not been able to respond to threads I'm involved with - the reply tab remains dark. I'm glad others are picking up on this too. its hugely frustrating with VERY LITTLE FEEDBACK FROM THE DEVS - NONE, ACTUALLY.

    same issue where Windows 10 app will not launch on both PC or Mobile.
    Hopefully these patches are not build specific

    I can do little more than scrolling past a few articles before it crashes. Lumia 640, installed to SD card. No other apps on the SD card exhibit this behavior. Tried uninstallig, reinstalling. No change.

    Windows Central for Win10 (using 8.1 version) has not worked since the last update, the middle of last week... I haven't seen anything that acknowledges it... Is there a fix coming?
