Thank you for taking the time to get in touch; we appreciate your feedback. We are working on optimizing the original version of the app for windows 8.  In the interim, we are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with our Windows 8 application and are working on a fix. We hope to have an improved version available in the store as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience.”
