    thats the reply I got from the Pheed people when I messaged them saying Pheed would be cooler if it were available on WP as well.



    thats isnt new for me because I often ask if a dev will have a certain app for WP. They say the cool factor isnt there.

    The iPhone is though. It is a great design.

    I wonder why Apple doesn't make more than one phone.


    Same idea, WP isn't cool (because of the name really) but the 920 and 8x are ****ing hot.

    It's been said many time, but that doesn't mean it's not true: the name Windows is not cool.

    I really don't see Pheed taking off anyway. Why would someone want to pay to get content from celebrities, when that stuff is available on Facebook and Twitter free of charge?

    My thoughts exactly. They could have put that in a better way, heck even Google was polite enough to say no to WP apps. Of course most developers don't want to make WP apps because user's are less compared to iOS and Droid.

    If I were to live my life and make decisions based on what other folks think is "cool", by now I'd have 20 body piercings and 100 tattoos.

    Just what the world needed, another social media outlet.

    Social media is becoming the new "dot com" bubble of the 2010s.

    This worthless company will be out of business within a year, their opinion of Windows Phone means nothing.

    Not sure about that opinion. I'm cool and I make cool choices. I only want cool things and I choose cool things. I chose Windows Phone because it is about me and that makes it cool. And I'm cool with that. COOL? But Pheed rhymes with PEED and that ain't never cool. lol.

    It's an LA-based "Hollywood community" startup. Take it from this NorCal boy -- that's ALL you need to know. :)

    So what, they pay celebrities to make posts on it or something? yeah, that's going to totally last and take off and not be a flop at all, we definitely need this app on WP8! How dare they!

    Paywalls aren't working out very well for news media. I doubt if they will work out any better for social media.

    Of course you can use Facebook or Twitter. Why do you want Pheed? Windows phones are good but sometimes.......

    Isn't the NYT doing reasonably okay with theirs? Nothing ground-breaking, but hints at viability at the least.

    No, they are still operating at a huge net loss. It's less of a loss than it was, but its still a big loss.

    iOS is boring now, it needs customization changes if they want more marketshare.

    I've had countless experiences of people showing interest in my Lumia 920 i pull it out of my pocket. Usually they say something like "Wow, is that the new Nokia? May I see it?" Nobody did that with my iPhone.
