    Skype
    I have no qualms with Skype as I use it mainly for video calls.
    Not very good to text or sending files... its slow, and I'm being generous here!!

    WeChat... this needs an overhaul. I find it frustrating when navigating the app.

    Skype. Definitely Skype.



    What you mind me asking? What do you mean by Whatsapp being bad across all platforms?

    It worked fine on my Lumia, albeit lacking a few things and it works great on all my Android devices as well.
    dont argue for the heck of arguing with me
    its poorly coded,it runs poorly on all my phones
    edit-this comment is for whatsapp not skype

    What's really pathetic is the fact that you have a need to post this question.

    Every phone and OS has it's strengths and weaknesses. Deal with it.

    Yes, if an app from MS doesn't work well in a WP, how would it work well on other OSes, I hope MS fixes the issues.

    Photobucket

    So much so, that after using Photobucket for so many years on 4 generations of iPhones, after switching to WP8, I've had to completely abandon it and find a different way/method of hosting my pictures online. The Photobucket app for WP has never been updated that I know of..

    Audible. I bookmark constantly, because the app will just start playing randomly, return to the beginning, or just lock up altogether in some way that even a phone restart wont cure. I have literally had to uninstall and reinstall the app to restore functionality. Android version was far superior and updated frequently.

    Microsoft anymore does not give a damn with even those basic apps like music and video everyone here is fed. up off and even the Facebook app is poor. How can such a big organisation like this be so backward? people are getting over with their patience including me. I've always been a windows phone loyalist but i don't think i can remain anymore 😏
    Totally Agree with you Pranshul !!

    Yes, we have seen some negativity creep in lately. But, honestly, we are not a Microsoft owned site, so a thread or two to allow our users to vent is fairly healthy. Very few people would be posting on this forum if they didn't like WP as an OS. We all want to see it become the ecosystem it could be- an equal to iOS and Android, if not truly better.

    So long as we keep this thread civil to each other, I see no reason to close it. As for the developers of this apps, the BEST thing that could happen was for them to read what their users say. Heck- there are rating systems in the store that just slam some of these apps, no one wants the rating system to go away.

    There are THOUSANDS of great performing apps for our devices. No harm in pointing out the small % of apps that need help and that are needed to help the ecosystem grow.

    Oh yeah.... and to vent.

    This is so pathetic, do you guys really think its very easy to make an app for mobile?

    @Pranshul Sood, since you started this thread, how about you make a decent app for WP, i'm not asking you to do a graphics intensive game but a decent app, may be a notepad with encryption or something useful. Its so easy to call applications pathetic or crap or all the nonsense you want but until and unless you can create something useful and contribute to the community you don't have right to call other applications crap.

    All you people who complain that Microsoft or whatever developer is not doing a perfect job with their application, quit whining and do something about it. Either you create something to fill the Gap or replace the application, or just stop using the application.

    No one reserves the right to complain about an application until and unless you buy it, when something is free, there is always strings attached to it.
