    Apps are not the be all end all of OSes for everybody. Some of us are just fine with a superior OS (IMO) even if the apps are lagging behind. If apps are it for somebody, I'm not sure why they wouldn't stick with iOS or Android.

    Someone here turned me onto this app Dailyaha. Its a very nice news aggregator for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 ModernUI and it has page turn technology built in. It is in many ways nicer than Flipflop board on the platform.

    So,at the end of the day if we don`t like a certain app,we have to change the OS that`s what I get from the author.There are a lot of apps that are missing on WP,some that are in the store has poor quality,true all of it,but please be serious,changing everything just because a single app is not having the same feel that it has on other OS,i don`t get that.There are enough replacements that can deliver the same result(some of them already mentioned),a lot of iOS or Android users will say,"yes but I am used to those specific apps,and they are missing on WP platform and I can`t,or won`t change for that reason".I disagree,why?Simple,for me choosing a smartphone these days is a very complexed mix of 1.software(OS,and how it is optimized to work with a certain hardware),2.hardware(based on what I need),3.design(when I pay 400-500 euros for a phone it is important as well),4.user experience(meaning I have to like the overall performance plus design),5.camera(not a very importan feature for me,but for most of us it is a huge one),6.Apps,here is when MS are behind but they are working hard to bring us more apps and more quality,it was already mentioned that MS are not guilty for the quality of some of the apps,so it`s not only apps,for me WP and especially Lumia devices meet 5 out of 6 of my requirements for a good smartphone.That means that if I have to change one or two apps and find a replacement,i`m fine with that.

    Haha i ain't changing because of a single app... Ever heard of the straw that broke the camels back????

    I have been in since my Samsung Omnia 7 and basically have had enough. Remember Steve Ballmer going mad on stage "developers developers developers developers developers...." Developers make apps, apps drive the mobile smartphone world, apples and androids market share is proof of that. I repeat the windows phone OS suits me down to the ground, love it!! I'm just tired of using 3rd grade unofficial poor applications.
