    The Windows Phone community is always commenting on lack of apps so why not help each other get the apps made that we want. Post links to email addresses or web page contact forms to companies we want apps from. Lets do what we can to convince companies to jump on board and grow WP.

    Here is some that have been suggested

    Strava Cycling App
    https://strava.zendesk.com/anonymous_requests/new

    Huntington Bank - Maureen Brown - Public Relations Director. (Only email address I could find)
    maureen.brown@huntington.com

    https://twitter.com/MobileEquality

    Amazon Cloud Player (must login):
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/dmusic/mp3...U2386840#songs - In the top right corner, click "Settings." Then, click "Send us feedback" on the drop down menu. Aftewards, click "Tell us how we're doing."

    OP you beat me to it. If you can, it would be nice to update your first post with links people post throughout. I've done a bit of research and came up with a small list of contact info that is a work in progress.

    Additionally, any tweets you guy send to companies/developers requesting an app, be sure to use #MobileEquality (https://twitter.com/MobileEquality) to garner more support.

    For contacting game developers, please use the thread http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...evelopers.html. It's very similar to this thread, but specifically for games.

    Nice. The more we actually speak up about the apps we want, the more likely we are to get those apps.

    Also, here's a generic message to send to them. Feel free to build upon it, or to use your own message when writing these companies.

    Hello. I am using Windows Phone 8. I would love to have the APP NAME HERE app available for my phone. Thank you!

    That's right. There more people we can get to send these email and messages the more chance we have or WP being more successful. I believe in WP enough to put some time and effort into helping the cause.

    Exactly. I didn't spend all this money on a phone just to see it fail.

    PNC Bank:
    If you do have an account with PNC, log in and send a secure message. I think that would carry more weight with them being a customer is asking for it than just filling out the general contact form. Just my $.2. I just pinged them again to see if there is any news.

    I'm not a customer. Maybe someone who is a customer can log in and provide a link. That's just what I found after looking through.

    OP there are more links. Also, when copying the contact info please be sure to copy from the BB code. Some of the links you copied didn't go through all the way. And, it might help out if the list was alphabetized. Some people may not like having to search through to find the apps they wish to support.

    Thanks. I've updated my post. Hopefully the OP adds this to the first post. I've also added links for most of the apps with tweets already generated

    I just mailed and tweeted Dish Network for the countless time regarding an app for Windows Phone and the Windows RT ecosystem. What I do not understand is a Slingplayer app exists for both and Dish Network owns Slingplayer, but the app is not compatible with Dish receivers. This is the one app that I miss from when I used Android tablets.

    If anyone cares to hit their twitter account as well:

    I've added Dish Network's contact info to my post, as well as a generic tweet to them requesting an app. I've also updated all the other generic tweets to use #WindowsPhone instead of #wp8

    This is happening time nd again for all the apps.only when wp8 reaches 20% market share they will notice.because of invasion of low cost android phones India has become land of android.I heard that android has almost 90% market share.eventhough Google steals information from its users.nobody is bothered nd are happily allowing them.android in the low end is buggy nd laggy as hell then also we Indians love Android nd we ignore such hassles nd happily go for android.in my opinion people should not buy low end android.android means specs instead save all the money nd buy phone like nexus. That is wise idea rather than buying cheap android every 4-6 months.heck even buy Apple nd keep it for 3 years.this is just my opinion.low end android make you cry nd creates a havoc in a smartphone experience.
