    It's amazing and very good and practical idea

    Killer nice! Sure, not everybody uses the same algorithm, and Google MS, dropbox, etc use this. Google is making it hard for Redmond & it's clients, so I'm stepping back from Google. To get this to work with Gmail (or anything Google, lie and say it's an Android. Shoot the QR code or type in the code to replace the password, on the WP.. In operation, password then the generated code, no need. For a SMS connection. Slightly stronger than SMS for a 2nd challenge because it is with you and cannot be 're-directed' via hack, snoop or man in the middle attack. Also always available, keep time sync on or risk failure and need to have voice or SMS working, in real time.

    Thank you for suggesting this added security measure!

    Great straightforward app! I would love Cortana integration and for the tile to change with my theme color/background. Support for more services such as battle.net would also be nice.

    If current number viewable as live tiles, that'd be great.

    Now if only it could be extended to desktop logons (i.e. like the RAS Token Keys model - log on, enter user name, pwd + pin type thing at the Windows Logon screen). Otherwise, is great.
