    Anyone familiar with Gigwalk?
    This is really the big one that I want. They have iphone and android but no wp8. Even though Microsoft is a customer, and they have work on projects for photosynth.

    I don't know why people are hating on wanting Instagram. It really is an essential app, whether people like it or not, and it could very well be a big decider in bringing a huge market to WP8. That being said...

    1. Instagram
    2. Firefox (Nothing against the IE in WP8, I'd just rather use Firefox)
    3. Tweetbot (Don't think it will ever happen, and Tweet It is a good alternative to the official Twitter app, but Tweetbot is the best Twitter client on iOS, would LOVE to have it on WP8)
    4. Tumblr (either the official one or Tumblita)
    5. Mint
    6. Wells Fargo (I'm sure it's on the way, seeing as how all the other banks are on WP8)

    And just a bunch of more games.

    I'd have to say the two most important ones I want are:

    Viber for long distance calling... So important.

    And a much better Facebook app, like at least one that can attach photos in private messages! C'mon.. Not even the browser can do that

    I see numerous listings, bit I wonder have anyone who posted on here actually bring the concern to those companies? I bet not. Consumers could push these companies more than Microsoft if they know or was jolted to make one.

    I want Instagram and an official Facebook app. But it doesn't matter what we want because MS doesn't seem to be doing much about getting the big developers on board.

    How you figure? Are they saying "No, instagram, we don't want you on our platform"?

    They were willing to make Facebook and Twitter apps themselves. They've not made an Instagram one. They've not incentivized developers very well as a whole, seeing as they don't even have any games from their in-house franchises on the platform. They've done a horrid job of convincing developers to join the platform over the past few months.

    Absolutely. And the FB and Twitter apps they made stink. Especially FB.

    I agree. Any suggestions on how to successfully lobby these companies to expand their services to our OS?

    ^try emailing the developers

    Temple run and Temple run 2
    completely optional games though so, not much really.

    definitely a fully-functional Facebook app is required.

    Ifyou're talking users, there's not really anything WE can do. The only way to convince developers to support the platform is the get the phones into people's hands. Messaging the developers is not going to work beyond a certain point, because they don't care if everyone in a 3% marketshare user base e-mails them.

    MICROSOFT could do a whole heck of a lot, though. They could hire developers to work for Microsoft, then assign them to jobs for various companies. For example, they could hire 5 developers to make a proper MLB At Bat application, another 5 to make an Instagram application, etc. Basically, they pay the wages of the workers making the apps for a little while. The other option is to GUARANTEE a certain amount of revenue to developers. Basically, they find out how much the app needs to make to be profitable/sustainable. However short the revenue falls from that goal, Microsoft subsidizes the difference, maybe for 1-2 years. Again, an example is that maybe MLB expects to have 25,000 downloads of its At Bat application on Windows Phone to prove itself worth the money. If they only sell 20,000 of them, Microsoft picks up the cost of the extra 5,000 (which, at $15 apiece, is a rather-small $75,000 for Microsoft).

    For games, they could lend companies developers to add in Xbox LIVE functionality, I'd bet. If Microsoft's OWN developers were working on that portion of the application, maybe the certification process goes more smoothly?

    I think along with the well known missing apps (for example, Instragram, Flipboard, Pinterest, Temple Run), there are some country specific apps that are missing for me as a UK user - namely, my local bank, BBC iPlayer and Sky Go. With the news that UK sales have increased to 6% of the market, I'm hoping hitting 10% in the near future will make companies rethink Windows Phone.

    Thanks. Yeah, I guess I (and a lot of people on here) don't really understand how it works as far as apps being programed for each OS, and the politics and economics of it all. I just read an article last week where Instagram said they would Not develop a native Instagram app for blackberry. It's really up to them. I'm not sure they (or any other app developers) would accept a modified program from outside, even if it was from Microsoft. -Metrogram, InstaPic, InstaCam anyone?

    I'm not holding out hope for help from Microsoft until they can at least give us Photosynth on WP8.
