    If yes, what features would you like to see?

    You know how on TPU's home page it lists last forum topics that have been posted on the most recently that are on the right hand side of the screen, I think it is like, 8 or 10 topics in total. I would like that the most, maybe with a built in a quick reply just by clicking on the app itself.

    Edit: I think this feature would provide short term and long term benefits as TPU for me personally has been the place to go when I need a question answered. Having this quick feed and ability to quick reply would be pretty great for a lot of people. As mentioned below, it would easily be transferred to Windows 8 Phone's/Tablets, making helpful answers all that much easier and faster.

    No, as I won't be buying Windows 8 due to Metro.

    If you do go ahead with that, then pretty much the phone app. Just write it for windows.

    Perhaps, a live feed for news reviews etc. But honestly, that's as far as I would go.

    Keep in mind that if you do make something for Metro, it could easily be ported to Windows Phone 7 too.

    from the screen looks good :toast:, but until now i dont think its pretty important since you can access TPU from browser and have all of the function
    and with that apps, it just slightly different from what you look in browser
    but maybe theres something that W1zz gonna offer with the apps :toast:

    It's a PC, not a mobile device. I'm a little baffled as to why any ordinary web browser wouldn't be enough. It might look neat, but I don't see it being necessary.

    Now now, just because someone doesn't like change doesn't mean they should kill themselves. ;)

    We could use a livefeed of MMs infractions. This will require a full SQL back-end.

    But, why an app when you can use the browser? a page could be formatted in a similar fashion without doing a OS-dependant app!

    The app would be useful if it would allow to off-line reading.

    kinda didnt like the programming model, that it forced me to develop under windows 8 and don't expect much from windows 8 either

    and that
