Metro Photo App.

    Metro Photo App.

    All was working fine until this morning. I went to view some photos using this app and got the following message (attached) I went to the store but there are no updates available. I even uninstalled the app and re-installed it and get the same message when trying to use it. Anyone have any ideas why?

    Microsoft has to be kidding us. Metro apps, denying classic Start menu, not letting Metro be disabled and now it is shown that apps have to be "up to date" to even run at all?

    They can keep this Windows 8 and this is coming from someone that is decent with a pc. Imagine what it is like for "average" person.

    geez <<< Public speak for other four letter words lol.

    Are you or MS doing 4/1 April Fools here?

    I agree GMan … I find it incredulous that I cannot use this app because it "is not up to date" and even more incredulous that apparently no update is actually available anyway. I concur with your "geez!!!!!"

    Agree. Metro UI is a mess. Metro on my computer somehow has lost the ability to see photo files, i.e. jpg, bmp, etc. They work fine with desktop apps. Wish I could just turn off or delete Metro.

    That one and all other desktop photo apps work fine. It is the Metro UI apps that are screwed up. I decided to avoid Metro UI altogether, the apps pretty much suck.

Custom Photo Icons for Metro
I would love to be able to use custom photos for launcher tiles. I'm inspired by some of the great screen shots I've seen for Launcher7 for android devices. Does anyone know if it is possible to use something like the icons found here Browsing Customization on deviantART over the tiles?
