Can anyone that has or used WP8 answer this? As everybody already knows after a certain number of apps are installed a letter jumplist appears in the applist. Personally I hate the look of it and would rather have a clean list but WP7.5 does not allow the option to remove it. Is WP8 the same?
I'm having a problem with the letters. Having been on the borderline with the letters flicking on and off depending on whether that one extra app was there or not, the letters are now stuck "on". Even if I uninstall everything I can uninstall, the letters remain. Normally I can flick through my app list with no more than two small swipes, but with all those letters, it's now double that and I have fewer apps.
I just thought I'd post that somewhere. Can't say I'm impressed with the lack of a setting to control this and no way to get around it. Though even if there was I expect I'd be stuck with the letters as this seems to be a bug. Shame it didn't get stuck the other way.
I'm sure no-one can help, but I do expect ridiculous comments that it's cos I'm over the threshold from people who failed to understand the post entirely.
Well at this point what you or I want is not part of the equation. I personally however like the look and the help it is navigating to those apps I dont need on the atrt screen but need accasionally. Different strokes for different folks.
Wow, that's really weird logic on MS's part. It should just be based on a threshold. If you pass it they appear, if you are under it, they shouldn't appear.
I think it should be threshold based too. The only sound reasoning I find is, if people have as many as 45+ app, they likely go on app-whoring route, which means they wouldn't ever have less than that. But again, there are thousand other things in WP design that will baffle you if you come from Android. If you come from iPhone, BB or Symbian or feature phones, it does more or less the similar stuff, barring a few functions. But again, it has a lot of other functions i.e. ecosystem benefit that no other OS can provide!
I think Lumia 920 owners don't care about this as the FPS rates are too high for us to be annoyed by blur. :) but I don't get the logic you're using , if you click on "a" you get all the alphabet and no scrolling will be necessarily (I think I just hate Android way's of handling apps .) :)
