Obviously Google are peed off at how much money Microsoft would make from such a deal. They'd make their license fees from Windows obviously. Then they'd also make between $5 and $35 from patent fees OEMs need to pay for Google's lax approach to software "development" (defined here as "just like theft but hoping nobody notices"). Funny really.
When we wil get whatsapp beta for Indian users?
Slicker? Good grief! Android doesn't even have a file system. It's a toy, not a proper OS.
It's not just about bandwidth. If EA does not have a server nearby South Africa, you could have ping times of hundreds of milliseconds, which makes a game like Titanfall unplayable.
Good to see some fellow ZA'ers here!
Messenger is not getting timed toats .. It might improve in future and it would be better if messenger had there own beautiful toan
I thinks the best redesigning icon and folder

Nice but its useless about 2 weeks ago. There is no live tile only to pin out from the app list but it has no information, only a start tile.

Not working. Tile are not working.

Lol, dude, we should all make a thread thanking Rudy and Wpcentral guys. Head into the forums for a All Hail Laura Knotek thread. We do know they deserve it. And Laura more so.

I would like to just say that cariocap has nothing to do with Alda Games, he/she just gave you a suggestion. Anyway, if you e-mail us, you can believe we will handle it :-)

I love Rudy and so his apps. Facebook messenger was much needed / requested app by users , ms listened and here we finally have one. Soon we will get bbm , Photoshop , flipboard and many more.
I dunno why, but notifications work only when I'm vpn+connectifying WiFi into my phone. I'm fucking loving Pandora
It doesn't have group chat or last seen or typing either.
Separate app for each
Lol, most don't really import as import phones may not support the bands they need for their carriers. With the advent of LTE this should have changed, but it has made it even more fragmented given LTE has alot of bands and most global phones I noticed come with 5 to 3 supported and US phones even less. If only they shipped with all LTE bands :p.
Notifications are rubbish on that app for some users.
True, its like everyone is blind to what's happening with our government
And still Forecast is my number one choice :)
Thanks God, if happening would be an utter mess :D
Yeah, I think its a 720 specific problem too. There was this other guy who had a 720 who was complaining about it. And I too am a 720 user, and my notifications also didn't work. But after a couple of days, everything was fine. I advise you to just let the app be, it will work fine in a day or two.
I don't. Have that problems of the phone is locked. I face it while operating the phone while operating fb,using browser,using other apps. It automatically vibrates and goes to multitasking bar or to the bing. There might some malfunctioning problems with the home screen buttons.

wow. rudy also planned for soundcloud apps. great! 6cloud, anyone?
FB messenger is good . A big step towards taking WP8 to more users
FB Messenger made me forget about whatsapp to be honest
It's days like these when you open WP central every couple of hours and feel depressed :(
this might be bcoz, u have turned on the setting for search on lock screen. thus, even if phone is locked, search key operated. and u may not be having passcode, thus other keys works.
I think it will add the same design of cloudsix for dropbox and with multiple accounts
Sudhish Cherukotte says:
Yaah may be u can give them over time pay.....Ouch what about 24/7.....
Can anyone tell me the solution. My nokia Lumia 720 when sometimes operating automatically goes to bing and when operating something on it automatically shuts down and goes back to pin menu. That's some kind of malfunction happening on ky phone sometimes. I thought to turn of the vibration of home keys from the settings but that malfunction is still there. Is anybody facing that problem what im facing???
Bing Weather is good. But no way to combine Bing Weather and my own Photo on lockscreen :"(
You're not alone. I'd have to restart my phone to be able to get notifications. I love windows phone but I hope they improve all these with 8.1 cos these problems are starting to get boring and annoying.
Not working in Uk
Sashank Mishra says:
I don't know if it is common or specific to my lumia 720, but after installing Facebook Messenger, I am not getting any notifications from other messenger apps like Whatsapp, Hike and WeChat.
Apparently, Google thinks differently. They are really scared that the dual-boot machines will benefit the Windows growth and hurt the market share of the 'Android Only' devices. MS should take note of this and aggresssivley encourge the OEM's to build dual-boot systems. It can only help. The point is that the Android users all want to have a copy of full verison Office and the capability to run serious business apps on their tablets if all possiible. The dual-boot systems will be very attractive for them.
Dean Lewis says:
Also it's a huge door open for Microsoft in the Android dominated tablet space. Imagine if this became a trend... then most Android users would dabble with Windows 8 on touch screen and might make a decision on which they prefer effecting their next purchase.
Exactly! Ubuntu! Who boot loaded Ubuntu? Those of us... 1. experimenting 2. dissatisfied 3. curious. And I bet Vista was the OS that had most people starting with Ubuntu.
It's like back in the days of Vista where people who didn't want to downgrade to XP might try dual loading a variant of Linux like Ubuntu... just shows people are confused for direction forward.
The war is very much on as much on - as much as Google would like to deny it in the mobile space.
Cant send a file
You said it... "two in one". If you want a "two in one" machine you get Windows 8, it's the only OS capable of such experience - tablet and desktop. If this move hurts anyone it's Microsoft... UNLESS Google realize that people might just realize it's quite good to use the modern interface with a touch screen and just get a Windows 8 tablet for their next purchase - the desktop area is an area Google have nothing.
Google - "oh, no we don't, we're all open source green hippies who do no evil"... LOL..
Pretend all you want Google, you're very naughty.
Paul Acevedo says:
Please don't call other people names in the comments - not even developers.
Sure, I'll check it out. :)
They'll deny it... but why so aggressive in this space and why so anti building any app for Windows Phone? SCARED!!!! Android fans will hide behind market share but we know what happens when someone turns their back or drops the balls for while (aka. Windows Mobile)
