    For me personally, I like YouTube links launching in a user installed YouTube 3rd party app.
    One of the annoying features of the existing app is that you have to select how to open each video. There is no reason in my mind why this shouldn't just be in the app settings and then users simply select their preference there.

    Awesome! From using your "older" apps I know I can expect Rudyesque quality in the new app. :) Welcome and thanks for taking the time to give us a little insight into the current status of the project. This is what separates good developers from great developers imho. :)

    Looking forward to it!

    Since you're developing this for W10, are you taking advantage of the dev tools that allows you to develop an app "easily" for all three of our screens? I would actually browse with my XB1 too.

    Will we need to purchase the app again if we purchased the windows 8 version? or is this an update?

    I understand you are probably being paid by WPCentral to write the app, but what about an app like TapaTalk where you can read and post to many different forums?

    My understanding is the app should be completely free.

    Interesting. If it's supported by ads, then I'd want to pay to get them removed.

    I don't think the current plan is to put ads in the app. Don't quote me on that though.

    I remember Dan sayin in one of videos that the app will be completely free to download and also without any ads.

    Is there any chance this could be expanded to cover the entire Mobile Nations network? I could see this being highly useful to people. If not, are there public API documentation available to expand this to the entirety of Mobile Nations?

    After you are finished, is there any chance you could tell us about the challenges you faced? Maybe even show us some code for some parts? I've been a .NET developer for several years and making universal apps is something I would like to learn more about.

    I just want to say that Daniel Gary is the best at everything. Everyone should aspire to be like him. In all ways. He in no way took over my Windows Central account to post this.

    Wow, that is a great bit of news that Daniel Gary is writing the app. Looking forward to it!

    One thing I would REALLY REALLY REALLY like is when reading the blog, always open the app to where you last loaded the articles. And have it synced across devices. I read WC on my phone, surface, and desktop. I'm logged in on all locations, so it would be great to sync it all. Sometimes, I'm really busy and I miss reading for a couple days. Right now, I load up the app or site, and sit there scrolling endlessly trying to remember where I last left off. It usually ends with me giving up in frustration and skipping all the cool articles from the past couple days.

    Thank you for coming here and reaching out to us. Appreciate it!

    Will all links of windows central automatically open to the app instead of the browser unless choose to. Much like the link of windows store will open the store app.

    Does the app now show the comments properly so it's easy to understand who is replying to whom? And I mean in the way the desktop website displays comments (or better), not the way the mobile site does. I mean the whole reason to use an app for a website is so it loads everything properly.

    Links open in a browser, not in the app. This is actually a better experience IMHO, but I'm open to feedback on the issue.
    A better approach may be to follow the Disqus way. See the Disqus app on Windows Phone. Try to open a link from the comments (not the article but the comments). It shows a stripped down Reading-View-like version of the article and has a button you can tap to go to the browser instead.
    I really recommend you to look at the way Disqus handles links once. I really like that approach.

    Will we be seeing an extra present to unwrap on Christmas Day??? New app version 1.0?

    Important app aspects to me are:
    - Cleaner page transitions
    - Working 'Download App' links to Windows Store
    - Would be nice to see full post details on all replys from a poster - example: Web version of the forum I can't see full post details of one user, including yourself, have to click 'more'.
    - Being able to choose what Youbtube app and what browser to open links in would be great.

    Am sure the suggestions will keep on flowing Daniel. Looking forward to seeing what you can do.

    Hello! Glad to know you are working on the WC app. The number one item I have always criticized is that, -for reasons I can't understand enough-, it's just not possible to click the web links/URLs inside the articles. It can't be done! How is that something so simple is not available?? So please, fix this and we'll be happy.

    Thanks a million!

    Another request: can the app's Live Tile support pictures of current articles? (That would be neat.) Currently it's just the site's transparent logo showing the number of unread blog entries.
