    I don't see what extra functionality we could give to a PC that has full browser capability. If you want the site Metro'd you could always pin this https://www.eightforums.com/index.php?styleid=94

    I have several "news" type live tiles giving me headlines. Just thought "why not?" would be a lot more useful on a tablet.

    I use the site all the time from a 7 & 10" tablets and the normal layout works perfectly fine (as do most sites).

    Same could be argued for ios and android, I had no problems using the site through a browser on my phone but find the app better. Just an observation. It seems weird that a windows 8 forum has apps available for most things except windows 8.
