    Hi,

    when will there be a decent WPC app to enjoy on my 1520. High res support, small fonts... everything is way too big on the 1520! And here we are talking about an app build what WP fans/supporters. I wonder why support isn't already included!

    thx.

    I think text in the WP app adjusted automatically with the rest of the OS after the Windows Phone 8.1 upgrade. Great support for the bigger screen.
    Have you upgraded to 8.1?

    As far as I know I've followed Microsoft's scaling advice for 1080p screens, we're not doing anything which I would expect to be unscaleable but I suppose I'd need to get a 1080p device and see for myself

    No, the app of course does work but look at the screenshot. No highres support :(

    So just to clarify here, what are you expecting? Can you give me an example of an app you feel scales better to 1080p?

    It's like with the WP system. Smaller fonts more articles on the screen then with a smaller device. Here only one full article is shown. When optimized (smaller fonts, more screen for articles) it should be 2-3. My english isn't that good to describe it perfectly (i'm german).

    Maybe this is better to explain it. You just see more on the same screen as the display is bigger (meaning smaller fonts, more stuff to show). I think with 8.1 it's even better to optimize apps for large screens.
