    Did this programming model force you to pay the Microsoft Tithe by forcing you to sell it through the Microsoft Store? That alone would put me completely off.

    But the app would use TPU to retrieve the content right? if TPU is blocked the app would be useless in the job computer.

    That's too bad. What was the specific issue(s) if I may ask? Just curious since I'm not much a programmer haha.

    If it's a "metro" app it would needed to be submitted to the Store for approval.

    Strange, when I went to blocked sites (in school) I couldn't get to anything, ever RSS/Atom feeds, maybe depends on blocking policy...


    It would be useful an app that could download all TPU Reviews, news & articles, in one file, and you could read it offline everywhere, you download the file & the app from your home computer and you carry it everywhere

    Yes and similar features to the android app, also is it possible to have side swipe move to next page of threads , a bit like it does for reviews
