    I'm getting an error when trying to use the feedback app:

    "To use Windows Feedback, you must be registered with the Windows Insider Preview Program , and connected to the Internet the first time you run the feedback app.

    Reload"

    I have internet connection thought. Just can't seem to use the app.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Yes, yes I have registered as an insider! It was working fine before :s
    No feedback from me I guess!

    :D:D:D I have sent over three feedbacks though. It is clear Microsoft wants your feedback!

    And they'll even get it without your active participation. *Sniff* :D

    One aspect of the tool that doesn't work, ignoring that it's almost impossible to find existing feedback due to poor search and sloppy formatting, is the need to re-enter your MS account credentials from day to day. It just won't remember them for long. Note: this is if you're using a local account to sign into Windows and are signing into Metro apps individually.

    The UI is horrible. All white without proper formatting. Looks like it's done by someone who doesn't have any skills in XAML design. Ever heard of data templates, no? It feels like it was put together in a rush. It would be nice to have things like heat-map colorization according to how many votes an item got, for example. Okay, it's just a feedback tool, but it wouldn't be so hard to make it look a little bit nicer.

    It's working again. Now you can search for existing feedback.
