    I feel instead of having a billion threads, that I could just create one and you guys post the suggestions here, as it would be easier for us and even more for Jay. So yeah, here it is, the "Official Suggestions Thread for the WPCentral Windows 8 App". Got an idea for what he could put in his next version of the app? Post here!

    When clicking on a link in the story (in this case it was a link to the Windows store) you get the split screen as usual. However when I closed the Windows store (dragging downward off the screen) WPC stayed in split screen mode requiring me to drag the app back to full screen. In other apps I use (Facebook being one that behaves correctly) when I close one of the split screen apps, the other resumes full screen automatically.

    Really? I've never had apps take back the full screen, the default Windows app behavior is to stay snapped so you could drag another app into that empty space if you wanted? Could you check that other apps definitely behave the way you mentioned?

    This is the suggestions thread, not reporting issues thread.

    Ability to choose scrolling direction (vertical vs. horizontal) when screen is rotated.

    Maybe also choose scrolling or page flip action (like Flipboard style).

    Quick jump button in comments, to jump to bottom or top of list quickly.

    Yes, I can confirm the Facebook app has always done this. I actually prefer this action of going back to full screen.


    Unstoppablekem, I don't consider this an "issue", rather to me it is a suggestion for a feature of the app.

    I think videos should open directly in articles instead of half-snapping to internet explorer to watch them.

    When the forums feature gets added, I think if there are links to the forum or any site within wpcentral.com, it should open in the app rather than in an internet explorer window. I also think this should happen with the WP version of the Windows Phone Central app. I have a Nokia Lumia 900 (with 7.8) so I'm not sure if these links already open in the app with WP8.

    Also, a small suggestion: when the app loads, the Windows Phone Central logo appears pixelated as if it were scaled up from a tiny square image. I think it should be fixed to make the image sharper/clear/unpixelated/whatever the right term for this is.

    Forums is the main thing right now... I normally check them on my wp, but would be good to get on the app. I kinda scrolled over expecting to see it lol...

    It would be nice to have Semantic Zoom (Guidelines for semantic zoom (Windows)) on main screen for easier scrolling to other sections (I know about app bar, that's not what I am suggesting :) ).
    Thanks

    This is the feature in the WP8 app that I like. I hope he adds it too.

    Is it possible to have it that if I read an article on my surface it syncs up with my phone and remove the notification? I know it wont be easy but it would be really cool!

    App sync between the Windows 8 app and Windows Phone 8 app.
    Semantic zoom to get to different sections instead of just relying on the app bar similar to how Bing apps are setup and the start screen.

    Overall so far, besides the missing forums as already mentioned, great app.

    On the WP version, if I see a photo, I can double tap it and it will show the photo by itself. For this app, I need to go to the end of the article, and click the "show all photos" button. Please add this in the W8 version!

    Also, would it be possible to have a "show in browser" button? Thanks.

    Could we get the option to enable email notifications or not, like the WP version?

    show in browser is in the app bar when you're on the article viewing page :)
