    Just as most users with a new 8 phone. We all started loading the apps we love to use everyday. Yes some of them haven't been updated yet and some have. But which ones I am curious aren't loading properly? I am currently have a issue with only one. Amazon Kindle app. After downloading it loads for the first time. I get to put my credentials in, download the current novel I am reading. Close the app and work on something different, try to load and never loads again. So what app isn't being nice to you this morning?

    Dictionary.com has a similar issue to the description of Amazon Kindle. After the first run, it will never load properly again.

    However if I don't let Dictionary.com download the dictionary files locally, it works fine.

    Although I'm disappointed that Shuffle Party isn't working its not a deal breaker.

    Boggles the mind that TuneIn Radio isn't working. You think MS would have been working closely with them to make sure the app was backwards compatible...

    I suspect TuneIn's issue has to do with the FM radio which isn't a WP8 feature.

    Me too. Everything else I've used so far has an updated version and/or runs just fine.

    The Kindle app is a killer though because my actual Kindle died this week! I want a new Kindle Paperwhite, but those are backordered through Dec 20th. Ugh...

    Hope they will fix Navigon soon, cause that is my major app for WP7! It wasn't cheap either. I expect a fix soon enough though...

    Are you using ESPN (by Nokia) or ESPN Scorecenter? I find that Scorecenter works better.

    I'm using the one that came already loaded on my phone so I'm guessing that would be the Nokia one. Gosh these Nokia apps ain't working properly already.

    New to Windows phone but my twitter live tile just shows the icon, I assume it is supposed to do more then that? The Facebook app does not pay attention to the people whose feeds and game posts I chose not to see and I am seeing them all. Unfortunately it keeps showing a 1 on the globe even though I have looked at all updates and responses.
