TwitView for Windows 8 - Update v1.1.2

This update fixes the crashing at startup problem that started happening yesterday. updated their calendar and it inadvertently broke the app, I have fixed this issue and just submitted the update to microsoft, so hopefully you will see it in the store in the next few days.

If you need your twit fix faster than that, I can send out this update directly to you.
Just email, remember to tell us what kind of device/architecture you are using (either 32-bit, 64-bit, or ARM) so we can send you the right version of the update!
Please note, installing an update before it gets approved by Microsoft requires you to unlock your system in order to sideload the app. Although this is a fairly easy and straightforward process that I can explain in a email, but there are potential security issues in doing so. 

[fix] Crashing on startup.
[fix] Default IRC username error.
[fix] Scanning for downloads crashes app when no downloads are found.

TWiT View for Windows 8 - Update 1.1.0

This major update focused heavily on the backend of the app, therefore there should be very few noticeable changes at the user level. I completely changed how the app saves and tracks the episodes you watch. With this new database system I implemented, we can now easily share information (MyTwit, History, etc.) across devices and keep them sync with Microsoft's SkyDrive cloud storage service.

If you encounter any problems or bugs with this update, please email me at

P.S. - If you're wondering about the lack of updates as of late, I'm currently busy porting this app to Windows Phone! So be sure to check this blog for more news about my progress in the next few weeks.

1.1.0 Changelog:
[new] Cloud Syncing & Backup - Sync History and MyTwit across multiple Windows 8 devices with Microsoft Skydrive.
[new] Options Menu - Ability to scan local media folder for downloaded files.
[new] Ability to increase Playback Speed (1.5x to 2x)
[new] Chat username now defaults to "TwitView".
