WPCentral App

You’ve asked for it, and we’ve finally got around to doing it. Yes, the Windows 8.1 app for Windows Phone Central is nearing completion. Or at least complete enough show you the app in action as we prep for beta testing!

Although that beta isn’t starting today (we tried, we really tried!), it will be happening in the coming weeks. In the meantime, take a look at our video tour, hosted by your cherub cheeked developer, Jay Bennett, plus a few screenshots and photos of the app in action.

We’re real proud of this app and we think you’ll be pleased with it too. From supporting comments, to native sharing, to presenting our HD photos in all their glory, Jay has worked tirelessly on this latest feature for our site.

Whether you have a 27-inch 2560x1440 monitor, the outstanding 10 inch display on the Surface 2, or a tiny 8-inch Dell Venue Pro, our forthcoming app should look great on all of them.

This app will run on Windows 8.1 (x86, x64 and RT), so there’s no excuse not to run it. We’ll post about the beta in the near future, but for now, let us know what you think and what you want in the app!

Merry Christmas, everyone, from the Windows Phone Central Staff.
