I wonder if there are limitations with regards to that feature on the OS end, where it prevents devs from implementing that
Well the Smurf not?
Arnold Andino says:
Will it replace the current Maps app eventually? when it gets out of preview perhaps?
its slow for me, I got an Asus vivotab RT.
Daniel Rubino says:
Yeah, seriously! Gotta get Rich and Sam on the ball, lol.
Good question but no idea what their roadmap/plans are for the app. So far though, it looks like they will push it as far as it can go on WP, so I suppose anything is on the table.

The Samsung Focus that I had the game installed on has died. I always planned to go back and get that Achievement... Sad that I'd have to start completely from scratch to do it now.
Daniel, any idea if whatsapp is planning to have similar integration as the native messaging app, so when you activate "read aloud incoming text messages" in the speech settings it will do that for whatsapp?
Maybe some UI changes, new backgrounds and live tile with green whatsapp logo :-)
when FF available to other country??
I was the one who suggested they review this app.
Calm down, Daniel, you've written almost half the articles today lol
Wow, big gamble, much akin to me deciding to leave my DSLR on the maintain in favor of my Lumia 1020 on my family vacation to Hawaii this summer. It was a great trip, and got some stellar pics too. :)
I'm not sure about playing a 6GB file.. But the player manages to play files of any format of up to 2GB without any issues.. :) tried playing a 900MB mkv file and a 1.47GB .vob file, and both of them worked fine.. And, the player is also able to play recorded videos..
Now(beta) it saves all of your received files in a folder named whatsapp :)

I bet these new map apps would look nice on a white Nokia 2520. But alas, Nokia missed the marketing potential of releasing white and cyan with that gorgeous red touch cover for the holidays! Guess I will have to buy a Samsung product instead! Everyone who handles the Nokia Supply Chain should be fired! David Bozic
Thanks Whatsapp, keep the updates coming!
You can get it back by downloading"maps" from the store http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=763581b5-5c70-4009-99ce-39d49991039d

This is cool. Pretty much like Here Maps 3D, but with more cities and proper touch interaction. Very slow on Surface RT, but I guess that's to be expected.
Would you kindly tell us what was wrong with it?
Haha, pretty much same here.. MS really needs to purchsse Vimeo and make it Bing Video :D
No, it isn't. It's just a web wrapper for their mobile website, I know because I've installed it!!
It's the default maps app, although it's hidden in Nokia Lumias. I hope they'll do something for this with the MS & Nokia merge.
That's all the cities that currently have a 3D view, curiously London doesn't have one and Portsmouth, UK is labeled as Southampton, UK.
To the author.... Another thing to mention is that the text on the map is much clearer than with the old version! This is a big deal and should be in the article, beacuse I have always believed that Bing Map text was quite blury. Not anymore!
Blutooth very instable, any idea to solve that issue?
Search 'region' from the charms bar, select the first option, change region to United States, download the preview, change it back to your original country.

Niiiice. Been looking for a good alternative to Google. HERE maps never made the cut - their data is too old and too frequently inaccurate. Bing and Google have always been much more reliable in my experience. Kudos to MS, now I just hope they bring this to WP
Plot twist: David Bozic is a self-hating Nokia Supply Chain employee.
Waiting is what I have been doing.. I am looking for 8.1 with aforementioned ability and file system (so i can share files / folders over WiFi from PC to Windows Phone) on a 5'' (max) device with expandable storage. Not to mention the notifications center and separate volume control.
Both seem faster.
Hurray for WP Brazilian store. No Final Fantasy, no Crumble Zone. Half the stuff that comes out on wpcentral isn't available for us. And here I was thinking that this was a good price to finally get Final Fantasy... well, I guess I'm keeping my money then.
No, it doesn't :P
This, the way we navigate each system is different.
I wish smartglass worked with Hulu, Netflix, ESPN....but you only get the controller. No useful information, unless you buy the video from MS. :/

Will it blend?
We want Streetside on WP8.1!

They added the pins at the bottom of the home page
Brian Binnerup says:
I recommend giving the trial a go.
I third that. I was surprised when I opened Games to check my achievements and only the 360 ones were listed.
The biggest difference is that Film Closet uses generic movie data-data, which does not allow for easy managing a collection of disc titles on DVD and Blu-ray - that requires proper disc title data with barcodes.
I imagine that when 8.1 happens they might do that and include One with the other..? =D
Not a bad idea to have both available...say you went to visit someone who only had the 360 perhaps =P
Microsoft expects us to buy all their products,so should we not expect,if not all,at least a majority of their FULL services? Is that too much to expect?
