But again remember, at the end of the day, by using any software, you are agreeing to licensing terms and most of them make you agree to the fact that you accept to agree the product as is and the company has no liability of any loss of features or your data when you use it.

It is always easy to be blindly supportive and loyal of something you support and not see the major faults. Microsoft will need to deliver on their promises. It really does make me think that once either my upgrade and or contract is up I could look at another OS. I don't speak for all but for many, if this isn't addressed then I know many will leave..

Yes people leave and join but if Microsoft continues this way...am pretty sure many will leave and only few will join
I am not a pessimist or anti-MS...just disappointed by the overall direction and development of Windows Phone platform...its slow and lacks the efforts to overcome its competitors

I've had a couple of Windows phones and am getting pretty impatient with MS and the apps. It really stinks when I have people on Android FB messaging me or responding to my FB posts and I have to manually check FB or look on my computer. WP is on some great devices and they have gotten a lot of publicity and users, but they better get some apps and fixes out quick. Their advertising money would be better spend paying the big developers to do some apps for MS and WP.

But I bet there is some sort of disclaimer for what is written on a webpage that protects them from facing a law suit!
It's the exact same thing I've been going back and forth with their support regarding Xbox Music and Zune Music Pass. They won't give me any details where I can escalate this. They ended conversation by giving me a USA address where I can only write, no phone, no emails in this day and age. Also, they are only governed by US laws, so I can't do anything to them anyway.

Most of the new killer apps are started by start-ups with 1 or 2 people...they don't have the money to be developing for every OS

I didn't pay $900 but I paid $450 while on a graduate student salary. I'm tired of the bad pdf support and the skype, both of which I do very much need :( I love my 920, I do...I'm just getting so frustrated. I do sincerely hope they do make me eat my words. I want this platform to succeed but it just seems so trivial when you know the design language, you have a software team yet we get this. It sucks because I am running out of options here. I don't want to go back to iOS, Blackberry 10 is worse off than windows phone and the only thing I have now is to take a risk in buying a nexus 4

Microsoft is not delivering anything, they really don't seem interested at all. It almost seems like a kids school project to them. Their Skype app is crap, their facebook app is a major let down, their pdf app doesn't deliver and they don't seem to be doing anything at all to bring them to some sort of acceptable level. Seems like the third parties and Nokia are doing all the hard work.
Simply put it we're worse than ants for Microsoft and I for sure will never be investing in Windows Phone again.
They let us down with WP7, gave them a chance with WP8, never again. They need all the support they can get, they don't want to be letting down their loyal customers or new customers, but they're doing just that.

I swear everytime i read a thread like this, it just reminds me of impatient screaming children.
Why are you whinging on here about skype, facebook, instagram, etc. Annoy the companies themselves. Its all well and good Microsoft approaching a company and asking for an app, even offering money, but that doesn't really do much, as we've seen for the last 2+ years of Windows Phone.
What people need to do is bug all these companies. Email their customer support once a day, once a week, whatever. If the companies customer support is constantly inundated with people begging for a WP app, they'll take things a lot more seriously than Microsoft saying it.
