    Hello everyone,

    My name is Daniel Gary and I'm a windows developer. I'm the founder of Gateway Apps, a software firm that has worked with a number of companies to bring their apps over to Windows. We have worked with Slack, Misfit, QuizUp, EyeFi and many more.

    I have been a windows developer since the Windows Mobile days.

    I an currently the lead developer working on Windows Central for Windows 10. If you have any questions, post them before! If I can answer them, I will!

    I hope everyone is having a great day, and I look forward to you all getting your hands on this app!

    In all seriousness, Daniel Rubino wants this out asap, so I'm doing what I can to make it happen quickly.

    Welcome Daniel. I'm looking forward to the new app. I'm assuming it will be a universal app? Hopefully it has all the same features as the current app including dark theme. And hopefully the full desktop app has a better way to read the forums then the current app. Thanks!

    Thank you for posting! Since you're in the forums, what does the forum experience look like on the app? Have any features been added compared to the current app?

    Hi Daniel, This is great news that this app is finally I assume near completion since it's been like a year we have been told its being worked on. The excitement is building again for most of us here and I believe we're expecting to see and experience an app that going to knock our socks off. We look forward seeing your hard work in the near future. I would also be interested in beta testing for you.

    Great to have you Daniel Gary!
    Third party instagram app that I used and bought was yours :)
    Hope you bring good quality to the WindowsCentral app. No worries, I'm taking care of Jay each morning, wishing his train is delayed by an hour or two :)))))))))
    You hear me Jay? haha /jk

    Regarding the WindowsCentral app, sign me up for a beta, I do really submit bugs (hint hint at insiders who just complain and don't fill bug findings)

    I do believe your introduction has made a lot of people here very happy.

    From one Daniel to another, welcome!

    I'm assuming you wouldn't be posting the information that you have unless you're getting pretty far along with the development, so it's good to know it will be soon. Hopefully an actual soon and not a Microsoft Soon™. ;)

    Thanks! Offline mode is definitely something we want to include. It might not make the 1.0 release, but it's in the backlog. I know it's important to users.

    This is definitely a scenario we are looking at. I suspect this will be included.

    Embedded videos do work(as long as they are from YouTube which is 99% of videos on here).

    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.

    So the theme thing is something I am working on ATM. We want to provide some customization options, but we are also weighing more features vs release date. It might slip to an update down the road.

    As for forums, I'm especially proud of how the forums experience turned out. I can honestly say the only reason I'm on here posting is because the experience is REALLY good. I think you will all like it quite a bit.

    I responded to a similar question previously, but in short the forums experience saw a MAJOR improvement IMHO. I think it's really nice for browsing both on the desktop and on mobile.

    For me personally, I like YouTube links launching in a user installed YouTube 3rd party app.

    This is probably something we can enable down the road. Will not happen for v1.
