    The proof is here: https://twitter.com/joebelfiore/stat...51273995710464

    I was quite disappointed to hear this, but I guess it counts, considering it's a popular game.
    On the upside, Viber was sent in for submission.

    I was disappointed also as I never cared for Temple Run but it is a very popular game and it's good to have it on WP8. I hear Temple Run 2 is better. Wonder if we will ever see that? I really just want Waze for myself. My wife wants instagram. It's the only reason I haven't been able to get her to move from the iPhone to WP8.

    I have a feeling that TR2 will be coming soon, but I'm not 100% sure. I also want Instagram. There have been leaked images of it being on the store, and rumors say that it will be released in May.

    Yep, I'm the same way. I like browsing through the tools + productivity section more than I like browsing through games.

    Belfiore should just "shut up and ship". Unless the next teaser is notification center.

    ^ This. In his defense though, getting buzz is his job...but I'd rather buzz about an exclusive app, not an old port.

    I like Temple Run. I am not a heavy gamer anymore and it gives me the chance to play something for a minute that I really don't have to care about getting to a save point or completing a level.

    Everyone has a different "big" app. I want MLB At Bat, Hulu Plus and the Official Roku App.

    All I want in this lifetime is for Hulu to come to WP8. Once that happens, i will be the happiest Windows Phone user ever. lol

    I can understand the hype if it was Temple Run 2, but hyping the previous generation version is absurd.

    wow,
    temple run is a huge app for us to get! yeah its an old app, but the more reason we should have it already! hopefully temple run 2 comes out soon, they're probably testing the water with the original one, and from the over 1000 rates and reviews its gotten in less than a week, it means that a lot of people were waiting for it and have downloaded it.
    Also not to mention that we also got Ruzzle the same week, which is a huge new fad game (over 35 million users, and it only launched in January on the Appstore) that all the teens/college kids are obsessed with, and I thought we weren't going to see it for Months, for us to have it only after a month and a half since android got it is huge!

    Personally I like Temple Run and wouldn't have mind Joe Belfiore hyping it up so much if it only worked well.

    Or am I the only one who finds TR laggy and unresponsive to the point of being unplayable?

    Only reason I have any games whatsoever on my devices is because of my son and his little brother. They both enjoy it. Me? I can't stand playing games on my phone... I love battery life.
