How so? I feel like the Windows Phone app works just fine on my Nokia Lumia 1520. What do you feel is lacking/missing?

I think it depends what phone you are using, I have the Samsung ATIV I think (basically an S3, but running Windows not Android) and the app just doesn't fill the whole screen so a decent portion is wasted displaying nothing when I'm watching anime. I read somewhere that windows phone 8 added support for larger screens, so I thought the problem might be the app was created for 7 and hasn't been updated, but I don't know.

Interesting.. On the Lumia 1520, I'd say that 85-90% of the screen is used.. But you're spot-on that the app does not do "true" full screen. I feel silly for not noticing sooner. Hopefully a dev will see this thread and update the app!

You're right! I just moved from a Lumia 810 to the 1520, so the screen is already much larger, so I didn't notice the black bars around the edge.

Speaking of devs, since I started using Crunchyroll on my phone again, I was curious to see if there were other WP users that were looking for manga support, like on iOS and Android, in the native application.

I wouldn't mind having a native app on WP - especially considering the size of the screen on the 1520! :)

I moved from the 920 to the 1520, and the black bars bothered me so much, that I haven't used the Crunchyroll app nearly as much.
See, they should just give the Windows Phone app an update all around. Manga support would be awesome, 1080p support, and a new design.

I'll chime in too, really needs an update at the very least to get crunchyroll manga on WP.
