I'd also like to make a shameless plug for feedback and recommendations for the app I made.

By the way, you can check out my app here:

4th & Square - A Windows 8 foursquare client.

Feedback / suggestions welcome :-)


I havent used your app so just going by the screenshots, but I think it could use some more colour for the background or at least a more engaging image. Maybe something context sensitive.

ROFL... it probably has trouble automatically updating like most other metro (cr)apps out there. A step in the right direction though, i suppose.

Did they change something in RTM? All my tiles stay updated regularly in the RP.

The app in question works just fine in RTM...as do live tiles.

The idea is nice, but why is the clock so small on that big tile?

Yea, maybe so the dev didn't have to make 2 different sizes for using small tile mode

What's funny is that we now need a 3rd party app to do something that has been done by the OS for how many years? Another example of why this OS is a step backwards.

No there's a clock. It's just a random troll on the Internet trying to bash Windows 8 without knowing how it works/how to use it.
