and then sometimes the tile is black and it has windows going down vertically?
Again not an issue so much as a curiosity as the app works fine regardless.
you can see in the screenshot what i mean :)

Micah I'm spending every second of my spare time trying to sort that one. It's about the most frustrating thing I've had to do and is because I'm rendering a custom tile outside of Microsoft's api & recommended practice.
Anyway it's being re-written from scratch tonight because i cannot solve it with adjustments to my existing code.

Hey Jay, I have 3 suggestions
1) High res live tile images for news stories
2) Headlines on the live tile get cutoff... Not sure if that is an inherent problem with live tiles as it happens on any app that tries to display a headline.
3) Fast resume!!!
Thanks, love the app.

Hey Jay I don't know if you are aware but sometimes when I'm in the forums on the app and try to thank someone's post pressing the "thank" button will crash the app and take me back to the start screen. From there I have to relaunch etc but when I check, the post is marked like I have thanked the person. Bit weird.
I just paid for the full app as its literally the best app I've seen on WP8 so far (fairly new to this) and definitely my most used. I'm really impressed with the live tile and how quick the app is. The idea of customising the live tiles is awesome and while they might be giving you some trouble in the short term, they're worth the hassle. I was wondering is it possible for the live tiles to show more than one news story - like the BBC News live tile cycles through the last 2/3 stories is it possible to do this with WPCentral?
Thanks for all your hard work you put into it, the app has meant I could read up on my fav. platform no matter where I was over the last few months so thanks again!

In the app tap the help & about tile, toggle on information gathering, type in your problem and tap the "send" button

When you say forum portal do you meant through the App or through the site? It sounds like passport still has some issues here, I'll bring this to James' attention

Are you using one of your social (Twitter, G+, Facebook, etc.) accounts to login, or your Passport credentials? You'll need to use Passport to login via the app:

Just wondering, is anyone having issues with the "Download App" feature for the most recent articles posted on the front page? Luckily I was able to use Bing Eye on my computer but, it seems that most of the recent articles just come back with "Title not found" even if a QR code is in the post. Is this feature set by the article poster?

I've had a couple of weird bugs lately where I'm definitely logged in on the app to the forums and if I try to post a topic or reply to something I'd write out the response then the error message comes up saying I can't post or I'm not logged in or something similar so I'd lose my post. It could do the same thing 2/3 times in a row before actually letting me post.
Couple of feature requests:
1) Could we get a like button as well as a thanks button on the forum view? I'd use this much more than thanking.
2) Have you considered making a large tile where the news story and 'flavour' or preview text stretch across the double wide width? This could be good for someone that didn't want to commit the lockscreen but still wanted at-a-glance news
Just a thought.
