Hi everyone :)
Okay I've been saving up for months to buy Nokia Lumia 920 and got it last week, thank God.
BUT, I'm a bit disappointed cos I didn't find whatsApp and the phone seemed to be poor with apps. I don't know how to send photos using bluetooth and don't know nothing about it! I'm trying to read but my question is why r the apps VERY few? or it is just me who doesn't know how to deal with it?
Anyway I LOVE the phone's camera IT IS THE BEST EVER!
Please help even to send me to other threads about apps maybe I just failed to download them in the correct way!

LOL I know I shouldn't be upset just for not finding whatsApp but I use it more than any other app! I was like no whatsApp no Line even the twitter app s poor! and it is hard to transfer files or manage them! I send photos from my laptop through bluetooth and don't know where they go! I used to think iphone s the most complicated phone until I got this... but to be honest I still LOVE it!

WhatsApp is coming back very soon, they are making some big improvements to it.
Check out this link App #Switch It was featured on WPcentral a few days ago, it will help you find apps similar to ones you were using on Android as sometimes the names are different.

To send a photo via Bluetooth, open up the photo on your phone, click the three little dots in the lower right of the screen, and then tap 'share'. When Bluetooth is turned on (via the settings) there is an option in the share menu for Bluetooth. Select that and share to any windows phone or android you want. Afaik Apple doesn't allow Bluetooth file transfer, unless an app enables it I guess.

This are my two grains of salt, every time you see the three dots on the bottom right corner of the screen that means that's there is more. So try to explore and you will find more options. Also use you tube.There are a lot of useful videos in there. 😉

I don't use Instragram, but I think its inclusion in the marketplace will be beneficial to the platform. The same goes for every other niche app or popular program that has an already established user base on iOS and Android. Developers look at adoption rates of new technology and base their projects around what will provide them with the most bang for their buck. If Windows Phone nets them 25,000 users it may not be worth the investment (time + money) on their part to sell the app for $1.99 on the market. However, if they were able to get 250,000 users the tables have turned ever so slightly.
Sometimes you'll find a diamond in the rough, an application that is designed for Windows Phone and runs better than the equivalent on other platforms. We need more applications like that, which leverage the benefits of Windows Phone, but that also carry the mass market appeal as they were widely used on iOS and Android. If Rhapsody, MOG, Pandora, etc. were all better on Windows Phone that would get you some converts. If you had the best Twitter client, Instagram, Facebook, "x" version of a particular game series arrived and blew away the competition with Xbox Live integration and achievements...

This app could be very beneficial for those who are looking for an app that is not yet in our platform. It gives you a similar or better one that the one you are looking. Hope it helps
