    @Duncanma:It's the windows phone version.

    I'm using version 1.0.0.36119 on a Lumia 830 with WP8.1 update 2 (version 8.10.15148.160)

    This is not a "great" app. It's basic at best. The app has been around for a couple of months, with no mayor updates.

    It needs a simple language filter! As interesting as those Japanese or Russian videos can be, I don't understand a word they're saying.

    Search doesn't work all that good either. Searching for "visual studio 2013" results in 4 (four) hits. All blog posts, no videos. No way in hell that search only finds 4 hits.

    Looks like a typical case of too much work too little resources to maintain.

    It makes sense to implement Android and IOS import first. There are tons more Android and IOS apps, and being able to port them easily to Windows would give Microsoft a boost on the market. But what I'm waiting for is the reverse, the ability to port a (Universal) Windows App to Android and IOS without having to resort to javascript/html5 or even Xamarin (or integrate that in VS). For small companies that have invested years into Microsoft with WinForms and the .net framework, and are at that junction in the road to go mobile or bust. They have no other option then to turn around and start developing for Android and IOS. Usually this means outsourcing and laying off in-house developers.

    I love the idea of Universal Apps, but they're not true universal now are they.
