Get the WPCentral app FREE for 36 hours in partnership with myAppFree!



I've had it for a while now. I subbed to WPCentral right after I got my 920. Was a reader before that with my Omnia running 7. 

Same here. Its worth it. Now if they can just make the forums more TOUCH friendly I'd feel like I got my monies worth.

It IS worth every penny. I already bought is within the first week using it. Even now I would refuse to take it free. This is ridiculously cheap for the amount of work it takes. I salute you developers who build high-quality useful Apps.

I won't mind ads unless they pop-up everytime you working with an app... It isn't such for wpcentral but still just got the free one...

Didn't we just announce our Phone app is free and now you're asking for another app of ours for free? Anything else you want? Want to come live in my apartment, take my car?

I didn't mind paying for both. You guys are still cheaper than a coldstone creamery love it and way better for me!

Do you have a sister?

OK - only joking.  I've installed your app.  I have to say WP Central has risen above the competition to be my daily go-to source of information.  Very well designed and written.  It feels a lot more "live" than any of the ohers.

same here ;) even since I didn't have any Windows Phone phones... um, well, I mean, phones with Windows Phone... right until February 2013.

Gladly paid for it awhile ago. A little sluggish when scrolling on my 925 but not a huge deal. Keep up the great work!!!!

Paid for it back when I had windows phone 7.5
Actually it's time this app got a refresh of some sort. Just to stir things up.

More Larger fonts in articles, comments and forums...... Please please please... It just looks too small on my 620. C'mon Jay please include this on the next update....

You can already increase/decrease font size in articles by pinching over the screen with two fingers together. There's also an option for large fonts in "app appearance" settings of the app.

Yeah, but it still looks small on my 3.8"screen. Besides, this setting doesn't apply to the comments and the forums, only to the articles. You can't zoom in on the comments and forums.

Well I remember reading a comment you wrote a while ago saying it'll happen in the coming weeks, so I was thinking it would be sometime soon - it's just that I can't wait to see what the name will be!

With most Microsoft products/service stories covered by WPC, its not impossible though... But then Android Central also publishes a lot of Google news (non-Android)
Well maybe Microsoft/MS Central... I've no clue :/

This is wack I paid 99 cents for this its not fair. Jk jk love wpcentral app and probably would have paid a lil extra for it

What if I have it installed already? How do I get rid of the ads? Do I uninstall & reinstall? Honest question guys...
Edit: Got it! Love it even more now! Thanks a lot guys!

I just followed the link from within the app and installed. Ads vanished when I got back into the app.

Was wondering the same thing being a 360 user & all. the arcade trials you always had to do that for it to take effect it seemed.

Hell I even bought the app even before I officially had a Windows Phone. I flashed WP7 on my HD2 when I bought the app.
Posted via the WPC App for Android because my Lumia 920 decided to die so I fell back to my One X.

I got $100 for my T-Mobile HD2 as an ATT trade in to get my wife a 920 2 years ago. She went from a WP 7.8 ROM HD 2 and weak hardware relative to 2012 WP devices to a brand new yellow Lumia 920 upon release. She was sooooooo happy. Since then she has moved from the 920 to a 1520 to her current 1020. Gooooooooo Windows Phone.

Thanks WPC for the free full access to the WPC app.

Use it daily. Any news on if we'll get the ios, android, etc counterparts? All the teams do a great job with their reporting and coverage.

Paid long ago, and running the beta myself, but posted it on my Facebook! All WP users should have this ago, and today is a great day to get it!

Be an ambassador or moderator in the forums. ;-)
Most of the time it is the same as the store version, though. Jay is good about getting features out to all.

Ohhhh... I thought there was some opportunity to get the beta that I missed. Since the features are the same, I guess I don't mind not having it then.

No, you didn't miss anything. Generally if something new comes out we get it a week or so in advance is all.

Been had it! Paid that 99 to take out the ads also. They were annoying lol. Gladly bought again for a friend of mine who also has a Windows phone :D

Hope so. Also, I'll be glad is the profile pictures are also shown on the comments section. Anyway, keep up your good job! :)

Was there an update? Strangely didn't show any notification in the store. And also with the last install, the app has already asked me to login twice in 5 minutes, once in the forum and the other here. Never experienced it before.

Download now folks to get breaking news on apps that are coming soon (that don't come at all) latest news on google & apple + great promises from Microsoft that come to nothing!

Although I gladly purchased this(money well spent btw) this is a nice deal and highly recommended app for anyone that doesn't have it. Jay, can we expect a new update once wp8.1 is officially released? ;)

At the bottom it indicated that the 8.1 version is a bonus, If I am already running 8.1 will that automatically get installed when I install the app? Or is there a seprate download? (Slightly Confused, new WP user)

Am i the only one, who usually has to open the app twice to clear the live tile? It's not that I don't wait for the app to refresh, the refresh just goes infinite sometimes (while the connection is stable and up). Happens with 3G and Wi-Fi as well on my 520 (8.1).

Was thinking to email @Jay about it, but this article gave me a chance to stay lazy :P

DUCK I just bought it 3 years and 5 months ago then i paid for it again 1 year and 7 months ago. ( wouldn't mind paying for it again.)

How does this MyAppFree thing work?? I have seen some good stuff go free for 24 our so hours.. What's up with that?

Hi UchilHasmit,

I'm Massimo from myAppFree. MyAppFree gives to you the opportunity to discover one apps (plus some apps in the deals section) that is free for a limited time straight from developers pushed to you.

Yeah.. @Massimo ..i have this app and do use it daily.. So what does it mean when a dev says "in conjunction with myAppFree" You pay them for their losses or something?

Thank you! Danke! Terima kasih! Now I can fully get rid off the ads without losing a penny. (And ditch Nextgen Reader to view your articles - which means I will also ditch the other Windows Phone related news sites e.g Windows Phone Bl*g, Windows Phone F*natics, WMPowerUs*r, etc.) So thank you once again! =)
PS: This is my very first comment. Please expect to receive a whole lot more. =)

Nice now I dont have to deal with ads sucking my data when im in spotty coverage areas that the articles dont seem to load in

I've been having problems setting up my credit card with my L920 since I got new cc, so it is perfect timing for this deal to "heal my wounds" with problematic credit card. Thank you, WPCentral team in general and Jay Bennet in particular :-)

What's the point in having myappfree app when I have wpcentral and /r/windowsphone to inform me about free apps?
Or is it some collaboration?

Well some people *cough* (not naming names) don't want to pay for apps. On the flipside there are those who don't have the means to pay other than via carrier billing, which is also not available in some countries.

Already paid for this app. And it was the first purchase I made after receiving my windows phone.
