wp8 lvr, 24 Nov 2014hey dude... I really don't understand your comments. sometimes you praise about wp n same time... moreYou simply cannot replace Google with any other search engine, be it Bing or Yahoo. Google is simply the best when it comes to search engines, bar none.
And there are no "alternatives" to Youtube. There are none better than Youtube when it comes to video sharing.
Though I can agree with switching to Outlook and One Drive.
Btw I am not a WP fanboy nor it's hater.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2014well just see the comment section of app store of WP.People are crying since last 2-3 years to... moreDude...
about mp3 sharing is not legal thing.. even ios apps also not able to share mp3 files. it is because microsoft n apple has their own authorized xbox music n itunes music stores..
so it is not lack.. it is not legal thing.. so WhatsApp, viber n hike are authorized services n they not break legality here.
all other features are available in these apps here comparing to android versions.
just check yourself.
about fb.. post sync issues are resolved now n pic uploading issue facing only few users. they will resolve it in upcoming updates.
about your other stated issues like tost notification, stickers, lack of wallpapers issue was almost 6month old issues dude..
everything is resolved now.. so don't spread wrong info..
looks like you are a android fan.. so tell me would you like if I note year old issues in android in current stage???
I think your answer is no.. so just check current status of os.. please don't write old issues.
most of issues are resolved now and apps you noted like WhatsApp, viber n hike are upto date now with other platforms n supports all features available in android except mp3 file sharing.
well just see the comment section of app store of WP.People are crying since last 2-3 years to make the most popular and basic application like Whatsapp,Viber,Hike as functional as Android.They can't even attach Mp3 songs, Lack of stickers, no proper push notification, lack of wallpapers.OMG!!
Instagram is still in beta phase.Lol.
even fb for WP has got worst rating and critisim as its laggy,don't show proper news feed,problems in loading images ad uploading profile pictures.
leave alone the gaming department.
wp8 lvr, 24 Nov 2014I am not agree with you... your comment is totally baseless... if you consider wp8.1 then alm... moreI completely agree with u android is a good platform it doesn't mean everything it has is gud. Many apps of android have so much of bugs... While wp has removed these type of apps once making a gud platform is not al you must give a gud service to ur user.
Drizzy, 24 Nov 2014I can't believe you said that we should use Outlook because WP doesn't support Gmail. Is it th... moreI currently use my wife's phone, LG G Pro Lite. Google Maps always make me lost, disappointing. It's different when I use my Lumia 625 (before I gave to a thief), always satisfying me with it's good accuracy.
As we can see war between WP & android, android has a big loophole of third party apps.. so if any one plant a malware in your android phone it will send all your information to remote server so as to the person... and you will never know its presence..
POD, 24 Nov 2014.exe software can be installed on lumia phones?no .exe dude.. .exe is only for desktop windows.
wp has. xap n .appx for apps n games.
Drizzy, 24 Nov 2014What do you mean by "irrelevent games"?
It's personal choice which game you like.
... morehey dude... I really don't understand your comments. sometimes you praise about wp n same time you write opposite thinks on other comments.
about google apps... their are already alternatives available. for google support microsoft almost tried 2yrs to convince for their app support on wp platform but google feels wp as threatened os for their android. so they directly told that they are not supporting wp platform.
google is not god or everything dude.. if they don't want to support wp platform then who cares.
for every google app or service their is microsofts own service available.
gmail - outlook
office is microsofts own service. about youtube their are already too much good alternatives available.
I really don't know which rocket science google provide you...
in whole world only google maps competitor is here maps..
if you really hate this platform n services they leave it man.. this forum is not for you..
its good to visit android forums for you.
as I told you everything is growing.

Is it th... moreyes, it's that simple use outlook to check your gmail message just use email forwarding to outlook and vice verse for gmail to outlook. you can even forward yahoo to both email service provider.

And what makes you think HERE Maps are better than Google Maps?
