    NOOK

    Seriously, it's on Windows 8, where is the Windows Phone 8 version? How does microsoft invest 300 million odd dollars in Nook and not have a Nook app on the phone? Would be awesome for nights on the subway when I'm not carrying my nook but want to read.

    Also, yeah, Spotify, Paypal, Instagram, would all be nice. Scramble with friends would be great but by the time we get it no one will be playing so meh...

    I disagree with the facebook comment, I think the app is fine, as are the me/people tiles.

    5. Popular game titles like Wordfeud, Draw Something and Ruzzle.
    6. Instagram (I don't use it, but it's good for the ecosystem)

    For those wanting a tapatalk app, have you looked at Board Express? I will probably buy it after my trial runs out.

    Mint
    A good GPS Turn By Turn app that doesn't cost $50
    A better Twitter App. Tweetcaster is nice but it's $5. Double the Android app price.
    Google Music*

    *I'm still not sure how Xbox Music Pass is supposed to work. I'm currently just using it to download music during my trial. How do I upload my music and have it matched to their library? Once I figure that out I won't need a Google Music app.
    I did purchase it. I can't stand it when ads take up screen real-estate. And the is lack luster compared to tapatalk. Nothing to speak well about. Also if you log in to your forum account, you may not be able to post anything through board express as it may kick you and won't let you log in until you reset the password.

    Not necessarily apps I need, but apps I think would help the platform.


    1. Instagram
    2. Pandora
    3. WhatsApp

    One app I'd want to see personally is "Call of Duty: Elite". Not sure how Microsoft gets first dibs on the DLCs, but can't get a client out for WP.

    I just realized today that there isn't Expedia available to download. Wild. A Microsoft owned entity with a great iOS app, and no WP8 app?

    The only one that I can think off that I'm really missing is Spotify. Maybe a Verizon FiOS app so I can program the DVR remotely. Better Facebook app. Pinball Arcade and Super Hexagon would be awesome too.

    But really, as long as I have Spotify, I'm happy. And I know it's coming. I'm just being impatient. :)

    The only app I really want to see come to the platform is a true MLB.TV app to watch games on my phone.

    I'm going to give a realists response to this question. You can't fight city hall-I realize Microsoft wants me in their ecosystem so I'm not going to demand high quality Google apps (yet):

    1-Flipboard....WP is woefully lacking a good news app, and this is by far the best one on any platform
    2-Scoremobile-or any good sports score app that doesn't look like a mobile web site
    3-Instagram-not a big user of this but no excuse for not having it
    4-Priceline-I rely on this app to book hotels at the last second, on the go
    5-Tumblr

    1. Official Twitch.tv app.
    2. Flipboard.
    3. Swedbank (Swedish bank).
    4. Improved gaming emulators (GBC, GBA, SNES etc.).
    5. Instagram (not a user, but for the sake of the platform).

    Also Spotify, but it's supposedly coming soon.

    Whatsapp - W8 compatible
    Facebook - which is actually worth having, would like it to have all the features the android version has!
    Youtube - one that isn't just a link to the mobile site
    Instagram
    CommonBank - one that isn't just a link to a site, it should be like the iPhone version

    Would also like some decent games like, Football Manager, Fifa 12, GTA and others.

    ?

    You know Expedia was started but Microsoft but has since spun off and is it's entirely own company now right? :)

    1. A decent audiobook player, with a sleep timer, and remembers your place in the book.
    2. Spotify.
    3. Pandora.

    That is really all I need:)
