    Ah, this explains why I was mysteriously logged out. Yes, yes, I like.

    Hmm... Windows Central, Android Central, and CrackBerry. ♪♪One of these things is not like the other...♪♪ :D

    I guess this means the name of the corresponding WP app will also change soon.

    I like the name "Windows Central". I'm hoping for expanded coverage for all things "windows". These are exciting times for everyone.

    Crack Central. Or maybe they should call it iCrack.

    I like the name though since we already have a android central in the family....windows central now feels slightly less unique with crackberry and imore. But I like the name.

    I hope to have a great filter so I can filter out stuff and only focus on windows and Lumia related news as I don't care about anything else besides Lumia phones

    You are probably already on it, but...

    - You need to change the branding on the Mobile Nations Passport site, as everything there still shows as WPCentral, including going onto "forum settings" when logged in.
    - Also, when clicking the log in / register link, it still shows WPCentral.
    - When you are on a sister site (for example, for those who need to go onto iMore / Androidcentral), when clicking the dropdown to select the sister sites, the old WPCentral logo is there still.
    - URL of the store website needs to be changed. (store.wpcentral.com). Also, any references to WPCentral in the store needs to be changed, this could include payment gateways, invoices, etc.
    - As you use a generic Mobile Nations footer, you need to reword the "wpcentral" branding there.
    - And, most importantly, you need to update your terms and conditions/privacy policies with the new name. If there are any legal disputes and you still have the old name listed, you could be open to a lot of trouble.

    There's probably more I haven't covered, but I'm sure you are all probably working on it already. When I read in the blog post that "everything was magically changed over", I assumed that you assumed it were all complete :)

    Good job though, you've made a great change!

    I made the changeover after I saw the announcement. WPCentral with tapatalk no longer works, but you have to delete it to add Windows Central and have it hold in your forum listings.

    Just a heads up for tapatalk users.

    ​If you uninstall/reinstall, the app should work!

    I like the new name which happened a while ago. I even liked the layout and flow. However, more recently, the site layout and flow has taken a very bad turn heading to horrible. It's no longer easy to view on desktop or mobile.

    When you say not easy to view... how so? Can you post a screenshot or two so we can see what you're talking about?
