    A well done app for catching all the latest Windows news and action in the forums. Nice clean Metro UI, gorgeous lock screen and live tile support. Daniel Rubino is still a clown though.

    Hey Bennett. When I try to sign in within the Windows Central app on my 1020 running the Windows 10 TP. How about replying to your forums? And updating your software.
