Core Temp Monitor for Windows Phone is now available for download from the Windows Phone Store

There is currently 2 bugs I found in this release:
1. If the phone is locked while CTM is still running and some time passes, CTM doesn't resume properly. It won't display any monitors and will probably crash. So I would recommend to close the app when you're done with it, before locking the phone.
2. There is a mysterious issue when some times when the application starts, it will display a 'Connection interrupted' dialog with a 'Parameter: index' error. In such case, just exit the app and launch it again.

I'm working on getting these two problems sorted, but would really appreciate feedback on other serious problems so they can be fixed before I resubmit the app, which can take several days to be approved.

I forgot to update the standalone (zip) files. They are up on the site now.

@ wagex
AMD CPUs only have a single thermal sensor.

Hi guys,
I thought I'd update this thread, as I just released a new version tonight.
At this time the only changes are bug fixes and support for the newest currently available processors.
The main issue many people have had in Win8/8.1/10 with the system hanging or crashing when you start Core Temp has been fixed.
One note, don't use the 'on the fly FSB detection' option on these OSes with this version, as it can still be problematic after long durations, but in general the problem is fixed.
All 3rd party stuff was removed from the installer and it is now 100% clean.
It was mostly personal reasons for why there was such a huge delay between the last 'official release' and this new one. I simply couldn't find time to work on it properly until now.
Hopefully from now on, I will be able to devote considerably more time to improving, fixing and adding features to Core Temp.
I'm open to feedback and welcome it, so please let me know if you encounter any problems with this version or have requests or suggestions for future releases.

Arthur,

I too had abandoned Core Temp in a Windows 10 build for the system hang you fixed, thank you.
I'm returning to Core Temp in the W10 system very soon.

Sadly, Core Temp still doesn't offer a clean Virustotal scan, and there are too many reports of third party garbage being installed against users wishes, so I need to find an alternative that works with Windows 10. Any ideas?

RC8 has no 3rd party addons, and works on win10.
You can also download the standalone version if you click on 'More downloads...'

I know that this is probably not relevant for most of you, but I just wanted to let everyone know that the Windows Phone app was updated on the Microsoft app store.
The bug where the app crashed as soon as you started it was fixed as well as a couple of other small problems.
Sadly the app store refused to accept the app with Live Tile features, which was supposed to bring some new functionality to it, so I had to cut that part out for now.
