I got the new Modern Dilbert Reader uploaded to the Windows App Store. It now has Favorites support as well as Offline Viewing support.
Get it and enjoy!!!
Modern Dilbert Reader version 1.3 is in the works and is coming along very well! It's got a couple of bug fixes, but more importantly, it has two new features! The first is that it will support caching comics offline, so you can take them on the plane with you! (Yes, I'm actually planning this for an upcoming trip). The second is a built-in Favorites list. We'll leverage the strip information from the Dilbert Strip Index to provide a great rundown of the strips.
Keep an eye out for it soon! It isn't submitted to the Store yet, but I'm hoping to submit it before going on my trip.
I've updated the Modern Dilbert Reader app again. In version 1.2, there is new Live Tiles functionality, and updated date picker, and a new way to access the date picker: via the app bar. Hopefully, that will improve discoverability.

Finally, new Live Tile functionality:
I'll update the post once it gets certified and submitted to the App Store.
My Dilbert app for Windows 8, the Modern Dilbert Reader, just got an update that is pending certification for the Windows Store. This change fixes a bug that a few people have periodically seen where strips lie on top of each other. It also speeds up search.
Best, it uses the higher-quality images available for the main strip display.
I'll note when the new version gets updated, but you can download today's version and the Store app will let you know when the new version is available.
The "Modern Dilbert Reader" app is not endorsed by my employer.
