Best Windows 8 Apps
10 December 2013
Looks and works wonderfully with a touch screen tablet like the Dell Venue Pro 8.
Though it needs lol script incorporation to be truly complete.

I don't want to spoil anything so I will just say that you want to reply to every npc and explore all the conversation trees.

because it's the only Windows 8 chatty client. It's very bare compared to Shack Browse, but crashes just as much and is slower than loading the website in a browser.
You can't get a URL to a post if you'd like to share it with someone else (it doesn't seem to utilize the share charm, either).
Does not support ThomW's tag system
No ShackMessage support at all
No image uploading
No expiration timers
No viewing of news in-app (full story view kicks you to the default browser)
No shacktag helper
Searching is pretty bad. You can't search for a text written by an author or parent author. The search term is used exclusively for reply text, or author, or parent.
I would just rather use the hot mess that is Lamp on my Surface Pro.

This is definitely the best way to browse Shacknews.com if you're into the whole Modern UI thing for Windows 8. The information is presented cleanly and in a way that's easy to read/keep track of, and the ability to pin posts and synch them is a plus over using the website itself. The only flaw so far is that the app seems very prone to crashing - I've experienced several while just browsing the Chatty and at least one while doing searches.
Excellent app for the shacknews chatty. Complements the Windows Phone app very well.
this app will get you chicks...maybe even a jo buddy.
