Until now we've been having 2 Linus Forum Tips Apps, the Stable app and the Beta app.
Today we're changing a few things.
Recently we've been in contact with Nick and Luke from LMG, they've asked us to change a few things about our apps which we are complying with. The changes required are expected to be visible to all starting February 21st. The changes include explicitly detailing that the apps are unofficial both in the title and description of each app.
Another change we're having is second thoughts about whether LFT Beta is worthwhile and if it's just a better option to support Windows 8.x Devices. The vast majority of Windows Phone customers are still using Windows Phone 8.1. Windows 8.1 is less commonly used than Windows 10 but the userbase is still important.
Which is why starting next week, we will change the name from Linus Forum Tips (Beta) to Linus Forum Tips UWP (Unofficial). This UWP part is to ensure that everyone understands that this will be the Windows 10 app going forward.
The regular app's name will change to Linus Forum Tips (Unofficial) and we will replace the existing app builds with a Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 app. This will be 100% forward compatible with Windows 10 Devices however we do not recommend Windows 10 users continue to use this from when we provide the replacement app.
All Windows 10 Linus Forum Tips users are advised to switch to the Linus Forum Tips UWP (Unofficial) App starting from next week.
Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 users should wait until next week for the regular app to be converted to a Windows 8.x App.
I know this contradicts things we've said in the past but we think we'll stick with this for now at least.
Thank you for you continued support and understanding.
