willboyce, 11 Oct 2015I only have about 20 to 30 apps + microsoft apps. I have quiz up other games. Music etc. Web a... moreLet's sort it out
1. Maps. Almost no good maps app. Bing and Here Maps are very very poor here. Yandex Maps hasn't been updated since many years on WP and no defacto Windows tablet app, as the app in store currently is a joke with 0 functionality. 2GIS is only for phones. And requires powerful GPU. No Google Maps.
2. Navigation. Same as above - Bing and Here are unusable. Yandex.Navigator works somehow on WP, but no tablet app. No Google Navigation. 2GIS for public transport navigation only for WP.
3. Commuter Trains. Yandex.Trains is only for WP, ugly and much less functional than Android and iOS versions. There are UWP alternatives, yet no route syncing and poor colors.
4. City Public Transport. The only services provides public transport location service is Yandex.Transport. No app for WIndows.
5. VK is good on WP, but poor on tablets.
6. Shopping moll navigator Wizee Shopping hasn't been update long time on WP. And it's quite ugly. No tablet app. No alternatives.
7. Yandex.Disk app is poor on WP and no tablet version at all.
8. No 4pda clients
9. No Google Authenticator client
10. No any OpenVPN client
11. No sane free SSH clients
12. No Steam Messenger
13. No good free Youtube clients
14. Neither Google Keep
15. Not sure how good Sberbank client is on WP, but no client for Windows tablets
16. No good smart dialer
17. No good Kinopoisk client. Those Android and especially iOS versions are much better.
18. No Aliexpress client
19. Any free good networking tools?
20. No great calculators. There are some good, even UWP, but far away from Android calcs.
21. Store is very poor. Impossible to find popular alternatives. Play Store is a mile ahead in usability than iOS AppStore and Windows Store.
willboyce, 12 Oct 2015wow slow down there, you cant use them yet but its on its wayIt's not on its way. They plans to make ability import Android project in VS for developers. But obviously no plans to launch nor apk, nor complied elf. There has been a way to install SDK with emulator, but it's unusable.
I am waiting for Lumia 950 official release with stable Windows 10. And display dock is fantastic item I think. 950 and 950XL will be the most popular windows phones.
i hope this phone will be a innovation for all of smart
I think windows store has a lot of apps these days. I can find all my useful apps in windows store. And I think the new windows phone is all about innovation. Iris scanner, continuum etc. I'm someone who moved from Galaxy S5 to iPhone 6 COZ Android was a crap. Now I feel its time to move to windows 10. It really looks charming

Anonymous, 12 Oct 2015You can use androi APKs now. God how far behind are you?You can't use APK's... Where the hell did you read that??? It's just that Microsoft made it very easy to port APK's and IPA's to Windows... No one ever said Windows is compatible with Android apps... You got it all wrong...

I really love what Microsoft has come out with as they are pushing windows phone to the top

I am the biggest fan of windows phone and I think it will be a good smartphone in future....
History Repeats, Lumia 550 will also be a success like the Lumia 520.
I am seriously thinking about 950XL, due to continuum mostly. But MS choice for CPU has made me bit skeptical. First off, the whole throttling business, secondly SD820 is around the corner, and if MS doesn't go Intel road, 820 based windows phone is 4-6 months away - is it wise to get "last-years chipset".
So I like the most things about 950XL, but am bit in between ...
for those people who always compalint regarding the wndows apps . or maybe they feel jelouse cause windows phone have new look and unique why just try to use windows phone be for you bubling
