Great App, But can not find it anymore!

I was using the Time app with my Windows 8. Upgraded to Windows 8.1 clean install and now I can not find the "The Time" app in the Windows store. It is a great App with several ways to customize, but now I do not have it! There is no way to e-mail the company or get support.

not bad but buggy.

Color doesn't change from Green though on my start screen and it crashes a lot. Once or twice a day I get "The Time" stopped working in my windows reliability report. (via perfmon /rel) Other than that, it's a great tile based app.

Live tile doesn't work correctly or update. What's the point of having it if you keep having to launch the app to see the correct time?

The Time...Great App, Morris Day would be proud

great app. It adds that one thing missing from windows start menu, the time PROS: *you can change the tile color and text color *can be made into a smaller tile if you wish * adds a useful clock that can placed next to the date, and weather tilesGreat App CONS: *seems to take a few minutes before showing the time after powring on

Cute little app

It is short and sweet. The live tile updates as it should, giving me the computer time, the day and the month (which can be turned on or off).... or at least, it used to. I'm updating my review to reflect the fact the live tile doesn't work for me any more unless I also go into the app and then back to the Start screen. Even then if I go into another app it seems the tile goes back to the 'regular' icon.

stops working when updates time

Works immediately after configuration, but ceases to work when time changes. Needs improvement to solve the problem of the update. Same for RT as for Windows 8 Pro.

Ok but ....

No alarm? Seriously? I've downloaded several clocks (and alarms) - either they are missing the alarm/clock or they are just plain pitiful. Free apps only. I 0nly pay for an app that is unique/uncommon. But a clock? NO! And what about the ability to switch to 24 hr (military) mode? Hello?????

best live CLOCK tile by far

This one actually works! 5 stars when I can change the color of the tile and font size of the numbers and text... And now that I can, 5 stars!

Simple Is Good

Really good simple app. Sometimes the tile info won't display after start up so you actually have to open the app briefly for that to happen. No other complaints really. It does what it's supposed to and I like it.
