    Great to see the progress on this. I will be trying it out over the next couple of days.

    Is there any chance that you could support live tiles and also some type of notification system? For example, if my garage door is left open, the message could be sent through InControl. Right now, I either need to send an email, text message or go through a few hoops to get push notifications working.

      Great to hear, let me know how it goes.

      I'll add both Live Tiles and Notifications to the list of potential enhancements.....

        I'm now running the Universal app and it is working very well. Thank you. The notifications would be really great!

            You say there will be no new purchases if you already have paid for the plugins, but now the windows mobile App is gone and I'm only presented with the universal app and it wants me to pay 29.95.
            I'm not against paying for software, but when I tried it, it has no live tiles and doesn't look correct on windows mobile. I would like to use the old incontrol app until such time that the universal app can function as I like it too on my phone. Live tiles are very key to windows mobile and without that , I'm would not want to pay 29.95, to lose features.

              Sorry for the delay. Microsoft decided to unpublish the app without notificiation due to an updated age restrictions in their store. It has been republished and should be now visible in the store. Also, you can visit https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/stor...l/9nblggh0jrvk from your phone to download.
