Nokia was great in Symbian years...Atm its poor Microsoft bullsh..e.g. Apple iPhone 5s 70 million sold in 2013 ;)
Indian, 19 Nov 2014No Need of Waste applications...........Windows have more than 3 lakhs applications........ Al... moreWhat I really really dislike is that Microsoft are playing it customers for fools with the numbers game
Microsoft keeps coming out with every increasing number of apps telling us it is getting better when it is in fact, just increasing the worse
The secondary app market is dire and I mean dire
Imagine that you owned a shop, and employed an assistant,
He calls you up and state record sales [apps], you rush in and till receipt shows many sales.
You open the cash register and it’s filled with IOUs Monopoly Cash magic beans etc
E.g. 2.5 year or Windows 7 since this app was updated
There is much duplication and some apps that have NEVER EVER been downloaded and seeing what they HOPE to do, you know why
What needs to happen like Android is "pinning" the URL to the homepage which becomes an icon (app)
Yes the secondary app market is increasing and based on what is currently there anyone can submit an app to Window and it will be accepted

This post is old MS store have crossed 500,000 apps and all the essential apps are available in WP also Windows is so much stable and fun to use
I love Lumias. But Microsoft should consider dropping that huge logo on the back of the new phones. They should just leave the 4 tile window somewhere at the bottom. I have a feeling that that would affect sales. Seriously.
Lumia 925 user. I have no issue with OS. No lagging no freezing. Phone only restarted twice for last 3,4 months. Naver gave me any trouble. Also I don't have issue with availability of apps. All major apps are now available. However quality of apps for some users are questionable.
Ex - FB fan page doesn't support insights, advertising, No free yahoo mail, No google analytics, ebay seller account has limitations in activities such as accepting, counter offer for selling.
These are actually not issues with OS but developers.
Santander please. And couple of local app would be fantastic. Them wp for me is a winner

The major problem with Windows phone that no enough apps available like those in iOS or Android.
It makes the operating system switching (from iOS or Android to Windows) almost impossible!
Windows is really cool compared to android. Though lack of Apps is a serious after thought hence I use both the devices at once. I wish more apps come to Windows. I will neglect Android completely
