Question is, do I need another social app or for that matter, join another social site? I mean there's Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Hipstamatic, 4square, etc! I can't have all these taking up space on my phone! I need an all-in-one that I easily manage yet more secure than FB, at the same time have all the awesomeness Oggl. Is this app it?
The best! I love it!

Rene I hear ya. I personally was a bigger fan of HD-DVD. Java to me is just a bad idea in general when it comes to something where you need light and nimble performance.
I also hadn't realized that there were any properly licensed playback apps for the Mac.
Yea. I'd rather browse...
I uninstalled my Feedback To Nokia app. :P
Yeah, whiners suck.
For the record, I like the start screen.
Its just a web app
Ads. They require weird things like phone dialer, etc...
Though proximity seems weird. That's not an ad one. Just inattention to detail when they were checking things off in the required list would be my guess.
I would go for it, but it would mean losing my 10 credited songs per month since it would change my membership type. :(
I think that's the direction they're heading ;)
We actually do have a sales tax...it's just not as high as yours, and it varies from state to state.
Well, Microsoft did promise WP8 devices would be upgradable for future versions of WP and that the only reason WP7 devices were not upgradable was because the Kernel was different.
But then again...we know how good Microsoft is at keeping promises. Just ask WP7 users.
I managed to get one for $199 from MS Online Store @ 8:25 PST, when the site was sporadically available.
Get over it, WP7 is dead. Why would devs support it when WP8 is here. This app also has a 1GB RAM requirement at the moment but I believe that will only be reduced to 512MB with the update, if you can find a WP7 device that satisfies that requirement then the devs might support it on WP7!!
Like I said above, if you read the comments instead of skimming them then you would know why the 1GB requirement is in place!!
Valid point. Lol. The nearest stores are at least 3 hours from me. I was shooting for an online purchase. Oh well. I didn't need it. Haha
Well, the bottom of the Tiles Menu is the Start Menus. I think that's more appropriate to say. Still, it's not practical to use when you spend your day on desktop mode because almost all programs (Office included) run on desktop and not on the Tiles Menu (I don't like to use the term "Start Screen" because in 8.1 the Desktop can be you "start screen" again. So for the sake of clarify, I shall call use desktop/tiles screen).
Microsoft wasn't able to make that coexistence work on PCs. So I think they're doing it the best way: include a dual-type interface. That way, the Modern UI can still be mainly used on tablets and touch devices, while traditional PCs and laptops will not see their user experience diminished by an interface that was clearly designed with touch screen in mind.
I don't think we can really compare it with Apple since not only their market-share is very low, their users are either Apple fans or people who seek Apple Macs for very specific needs. Microsoft has a way bigger picture and demographic to deal with: they have to provide content that pleases people from 9 to 99
Not only that but the mobile site doesn't work all that well or have notifications.
Why does it require so much info from my phone? Identity, data services, proximity...? Holding off for now, even though it seems like a great app!
You probably figured out by now. Each deal is one day only.
Maybe I found the problem. If I uncheck the protected-mode (which is set to standard) of the IE it works, so it has something to do with these settings~
If you read the comments instead of skimming them before posting then you would know why it has a 1GB requirement!!
This is about the device that connects headphones to you rWP device. While they come with some basic earbuds, that's not the focus of the product. The product is the device that is the gateway to your WP device. You can connect any headphones to it.
Does anyone know if this phone will be receiving the GDR3 update??
The companies I deal with are Banks, Law firms etc. Companies that generate big revenues and have a large employee base. All of them either decided to not adopt W8 or asked Microsoft for specific versions that completely locked the Star Screen from use and removed the Store.
Also, it doesn't help people's acceptance of a new design the fact that your movements are still restricted (the tiles only move in certain fashions), you can't really personalize them and 99.9% of the programs you use for work on a PC (think any Office program) goes back to desktop to open and run.
For the non-tablet Windows environment, W8's Metro design simply doesn't work. It's fun but it's not useful nor practical. Unless all you use your PC for is social-networking and web browsing.
what are the surface and surface 2 complete bundle and what does they cost
Please just give me WatchESPN app already! At least before the World Cup next summer!
How many of those apps will look good and work well in a windowed environment? Microsoft went full screen because most people were running their apps maximized on windows 7 and prior. Snap view is generally more than enough when you need to see 2 things at the same time and you don't have dual monitors. The people who open apps in many small windows are really a small minority. Microsoft telemetry data shows that.
I think I already got these features on my 1520.
I will give it a hand.
"You guys without 1 gb ram" :) Yeah, this sounds great, it defines a f-ing large group of people, you know...
About mobile site - I use it, as I used it for a long time, thank you for reminding me about obvious things...
Not working on 8x...
unlimited data is the only reason most people I know stay with AT&T
Wait, nevermind, doesn't work for vast majority of WP users. Shame, I've been waiting a long time for this.
I don't know if I should waste my breath....
It's not designed for tablet. It's designed with touch IN MIND, also keeping in mind the weak points of 7's start menu, and collected usage statistics on how many users clicked what and where and how long it took them.
I'll repeat- They redesigned the start menu based off collected usage statistics from windows 7 DESKTOP USERS. This feedback was analyzed and used to create an interface that is more efficient for the majority of users based on how they used 7- the very vocal minority would have you think otherwise with their pointless cries (pro tip- you can install any third party alternative start menu and just not whine about it if you absolutely cannot bring yourself to increase efficiency). It works better not only with touch, but with a mouse and keyoard. People have the faulty notion that it was designed for touch and refuse to comprehend that the layout is just plain more beneficial and efficient regardless of input type. The only shortcoming is that software installers tend to litter the start menu with crap (which is just as applicable to 7 mind you) so you see a lot of crap from what you have installed. This is the fault of varying software devs for litering start with useless shortcuts. I'm working on writing a program to help users easily clean up their start shortcuts actually.
One of the core benefits to the grid of the start screen is that it provides an immediate visual of what is installed on the PC, so anyone can sit down on an unfamiliar computer and quickly see what software is available to use. The developers at MS put a lot of thought and logic into it, you can read about it on the developer blogs.
Yes, Singapore also have Christmas :)
First, there is nothing simple and easy about android. Apple just added the command center to ios. Before that you had to exit an app, go to settings, search for the setting, and tap the button. You make it sould like apple always had this feature. Android has had setting shortcuts for a long time, but the os overall isn't simple and easy to use. Most of the tiles on my phone and PC do update. Even if they don't, you can make them small and they will become just like the ipad air, static icons. The devices do have basic functionality. They are missing a few features. If those features are really that important to you, then by all means return teh tablet. I, personally, have gotten by easily without a notification center and rotation lock.
Beg to differ on the week view in the calendar. You have a choice of day, work week, week or month if you just click on the top of the screen when using a mouse or swipe down if using a touch based device.
As far as the live tiles go we have 2 Lumia 920s in the house, a Surface 2, Surface RT and Surface Pro 2 as well as several Windows 8 desktop computers and have never had any problem on any of them. They all work just as they should, updates, e-mails, telephone messages/missed calls, calendar appointments, all work perfectly. Toast notifictions work just fine on our phones. We love that the calendar also sends an e-mail notification of an upcoming appointment. I have to say that we are loving what Microsoft is doing with everything all being synced and never having to worry about whether we are using our phones, Surfaces or computers, we know that the same information will be on all of them.
Nice idea, I like the search feature, but it doesn't allow you to browse.
The Sportscenter app isn't coming anytime soon. Support emailed me back today and ESPN has no plans of bringing it to the platform. Bing sports needs some major updates to even compare. Opening up a game cast takes you to a full website and it has no notifications. Microsoft has gotta come in the clutch for us.
It's in the settings area and it's just called 'feedback'.
It should be near the bottom...but the location my vary depending upon what the most recent settings app you downloaded is. The positions of those shift as updates occur.

Cool, wanted to say good job for this pretty cool idea and I hope you evolve it even further :)
(maybe pms like snapchat)

Programs are already on desktop, I don't know what you're talking about.
Vlad C says:
Also, can you stop the annoying habbit of linking tags to your article instead of links to the actual sites? When I click on "Socl" I expect it to open the Socl site, not to the list of articles about it, having the current article at the top.
Finally! I actually signed the change.org petition for this last week.
What significant features does the black update bring?
Me too! I was hoping we'd get RAW support before my six-US-states two-countries vacation this and next month, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.
