    Works great. Feature suggestion: Option to make it a lock screen app

    It's always running meaning and still hotmail is still asking for codes

    Works okay, but fails to recognize QR codes from many, but not all sites. These are mainstream sites, so I suspect it's a bug in the app, not the sites.

    This is awful. I do not want to have to run this but MSFT refuses to let me use a throwaway account. I'm a seasoned IT professional. I know the risks. LET ME CHOOSE

    Good app, have all 2nd layer auth in one place is very handy. But pressing should copy to clipboard and pressing & hold should bring the edit.

    Why not set this app to link to the Microsoft account? I had about 10 accounts in the app and after a phone reset i had to set all of them again. Cannot believe that you do not provide a backup option for the accounts in case you loose the phone - upgrade the phone -etc .. Gishhhh..
