    Our beloved OS is now catching up with the competition after Microsoft declared that we now have more than 200,000 apps in our store , the store now covers every popular game and app any average user would use which is going to make people go on board with the OS only a few big names are missing which are eventually coming to us what do you think about that

    A serious doubt for me guys plz answer,why many apps don't work on 512mb ram based windows phones whereas it works on android phones with 512mb ram even if the phone is less powerful fro ex temple run oz needs 1gb ram on windows phone but it runs very good on 512mb android phone and ios phone ,is it the reason windows os is poor at memory management when it comes to apps?

    you're a little off-topic, but the TL;DR is that the reason they work on 512 Mb ram is because of optimization, which involves more time coding. WP has little market market share, so devs spend less time optimizing apps.

    Any word on if a SiriusXM app is in the works? That's the only one I'm missing.

    How is an app considered missing from the store? If an app has what number of users is it count as missing from the store?

    but now the market Is growing at a very fast pace ,will we see more intensive games and apps running at 512mb ram because even the newly revised lumia 525 comes with 1gb ram showing the windows phone needs atleast 1gb ram to run most apps

    they actually ran an article on this awhile back, 95% of apps on the windows store are comparable with 512mb devices but of that 5% that can't I think they said 80ish% percent of those were games

    that's just because the 525 a new version of a device, it has to improve somehow :p. Yes, as the market grows, devs will spend more time optimizing.

    No, 1 GB of RAM is not required to run most apps. Only the biggest ones, and the ones that are not very well optimized. The majority of apps do not fall into these two categories.
