    A lack of a major credit card processing app (square, gopayment, Groupon merchants) is killing me. I'm having to switch OS because of this.

    Steam, a sheet music creator and a good RTS game.
    I have been waiting for a good Chess game but I got Chess Fusion.
    I've never had an Android phone so I don't know Android apps to compare with WP apps.
    I really want developers to create good graphical interfaces in their apps, because some apps have poor design and navigation.

    Apple has a stronghold in the US which compelled Google to release their services on iOS. Not true for WP as it has no stronghold anywhere. Basically both Apple and Google don't want Microsoft and WP to grow.
    No, Google's main goal is provide the best possible services on their own platform, with iOS being a close second but just as Google has had conflicts with Microsoft, it has also had conflicts with Apple:

    If you know to manually install a .xap, you can get the official YouTube app back:

    That app is v3.2 which doesn't have the download feature and has ads too. Moreover, the folks at XDA couldn't make the live tile and video uploads work in the pirated xap. One still needs to use various third-party apps for that. If Google didn't block v3.0, (with live tile, upload/download, ad-free) one would find zero need for a third-party YouTube app.

    I knew about that. But that was a Microsoft made YouTube that was pulled from store.

    You keep saying google published official app on windows phone which it never did. They publically stated, even in 2012 when market was still open that they are not planning on bringing google apps to either windows, windows phone or windows RT anytime soon.

    I can manage with the apps that are available on Windows Phone, but being a huge mobile gamer, I want the games I'm currently playing on my iOS and Android devices to be on Windows Phone.

    New apps:
    1) PNC Bank / PNC Virtual Wallet
    2) Honeywell TotalConnect 2
    3) HBO GO
    4) LoyalTree (local loyalty rewards program)

    Update to apps:
    1) IMDB
    2) Facebook, as others said, would be better developed by Facebook themselves to keep it on par with other platforms.
    3) (I know some others are lacking some features but they are adequate for my needs).

    Hardware support:
    1) Moov Fitness Tracker (new product)
    2) Coin (hardware currently in beta, supports iOS and will support Android next month)
    3) Sense (Sleep monitor available later this year).

    I really need
    - A good browser with add ons and a different UI than the single standard one allowed by WP. Firefox mobile or Dolphin in particular, with the capacity to choose my search engine.
    - I need Pleco Chinese and Hanping for my work
    - I need a good mail client with lots of functions that don't exist in WP
    - I need a working office app.
    - A good integrated messaging client (IM+ Pro is terrible and dropped Skype support, Skype sucks and the others offer subpar performances except Line and Wechat which work very good, among those i use)
    - I need the platform to allow global sharing with automated insertion of new apps in the sharing list.
    - I need to be able to select my preferred default apps rather than those preset by microsoft. For example i can't stand links opening into Explorer because Explorer simply doesn't work and lacks all what i need. I use Surfy and Maxthon and therefore links should open there.
    - I need real maps with public transport and a function that shows me directions simply clicking on the map twice to define FROM/TO points rather than inserting "CHINESE ADDRESSES" i often have no clue of although i know where places are (Microsoft and Nokia didn't think much of this)
    - Of course i still need the Traditional Chinese Qwerty (pinyin) that Microsoft refuses to add on its OS.
    - A good music app that actually works. For some reasons the NEXT key on my music app is not working. If anyone has a good idea for a good app i'll be glad to try them all. Searches in the market result in things i don't need.

    ...and I wish Photobucket would update their damn app!

    With that though, I've since started using Onedrive for my picture hosting, and have mastered the sharing functions and methods used to post pics in forums etc. Wouldn't want to use anything else now really. The hell with Photobucket! (I do still have a few hundred pics hosted there though!)

    Why does Mobile Nations make an awesome, free WPCentral app for Android, but not one for actual Windows Phone? Whoever it was that made the WPCentral app for Windows Phone did a good job, but the official one on Android is much better.

    Does WP not have enough users for Mobile Nations to build an actual app?

    Say whatever you want but if there is one app I really want it would have to be Google+. No don't come telling me about the ones in the store they are basically web wrapped apps. And just plain bad.

    Uhmm dude, even the Facebook app has been put on the Store by Microsoft, however both Facebook and Microsoft worked on it.

    For all intents and purposes the YouTube app seen on the Windows Phone Store before was "official" and could you please show me where Google has said that they aren't planning to bring Google services to Windows, Windows RT and Windows Phone, they have Google Chrome one of the best browsers on Windows 8.
