    It's too poor, the appearance isn't good, ugly to be a Microsoft application. THE APP ON ANDROID IT'S BETTER!

    Works perfectly for accessing Microsoft account

    Very useful. I'm using it with, Facebook and even with my Google account. But it has no support for transparent tile. Should have a option to receive the code via push at least for Microsoft Account.

    The Microsoft account app on Android is much better. To sign into to my account on Android it texted me and I just checked "yes" or "no" for approval and it signs me right in. While on here I have to jump out of the app I'm trying to sign in on and go to this app and memorize the numbers then type them in. Make it like the Android app!

    Help! Whenever I try to download the app, this message pops up, "couldn't sign you in," "your username or password doesn't seem to be working, try entering it again." How can this be I just reset my password? I am fed up!!!!!!

    Garbage compared to the MS account so for Android.

    So easy to use, and I wish more sites supported this methodology. Any chance for an update with a transparent tile for WP8.1? Would be great if this worked like the Android Microsoft account app and prompt for approval to simplify process.
