    Hey! Are you fixing the missing app shortcut issue?
  • by Jay 7/4/2014
    Was great until this latest update. As others with the Windows Phone Dev preview have stated, the app icon disappeared, yet stays in the running processes. I've taken note of the warnings you've sent out though, and will be waiting for a fix.

    After the last update from this morning the icon has completely disappeared. Seems to stay somewhere in the background processes as the battery started depleting rapidly. Please urgently fix it! Nokia Lumia 820, 8.1 Preview for developers.

    It worked great but after today's update the app disappeared on my phone. (Nokia Icon running WP8.1 Dev Preview) If I look at it in the store it says it's installed but if I "view the app" from the store it just goes back to the start screen. I have no way to access or uninstall the app. Please update and fix this. Would have given it 5 stars prior to this breaking.

    Everything is working great after the last update. The firmware update went through and now it's working as expected.

    Keeps on crashing when loading
  • by Tobias 6/25/2014
    Updating (0% bug) finally worked after 3rd try. App is well done, though I hope they release their other apps on WP/W8 too!
