    Yep. John (z3r010) just added it a few hours ago to have our live tile relay off the RSS feed at EF.

    Hi there

    Are the Android apps still being updated -- I actually quite like those -- very few glitches on latest version of Android with Samsung S5 phone (Android version 4.4.2). Any chance also of adding a W9 Forum android app.

    (The full site works of course via the phones browser but the Android apps are much more convenient when browsing the Forums with smaller mobile devices).

    I'm not having the apps updated unless they stop working, the developer is now working on a pay monthly model and It's jsut not worth the outlay, Nine forums and PCHF are both running fully responsive designs so an app is not needed.

    If you want to use an up-to-date app for the site then just use the latest version of tapatalk.

Offset tiles or transparent tiles possible.
Windows 8 Start Screen Customizer worked well for this in W8. However, it doesn't work with 8.1. I've already emailed the developer, but without a response. Is there an alternative method to getting no tiles show on the start screen or if possible, just one tile and the rest unvisible until...
