    6. Fully integrated Skype (shouldn't need an app for this, should just be baked into WP)
    (see RED bolded) That was the case w early WinPhone builds, a decision was made to separate certain functions into apps. This will allow that function (app) to be updated without updating the OS.

    Makes sense to me, in addition, will aid in interoperability - as permissions are granted to certain apps without compromising security, which may NOT have been available if the function was baked into Windows Phone OS.

    I know it sounds contradictory, but, if you think about it, it makes sense. I'd rather lock (& bolt) all the doors & windows, then selectively open them as needed, on a case by case basis. Unfortunately, most OS's are designed with a back door or fallover, which when discovered can lead to vulnerabilities.

    I'd say it less specific apps and more all the bank apps, niche apps, games, etc. that don't get developed immediately or at all for WP.

    Hmm. Not quite the type of MEME app I'm looking for. Not a MEME app which keep me entertained. But I need a MEME app that I can add my own sentences and send to friends to joke or mock about.

    Something like MEME generator on Android.

    I have tried couple of WP versions, but none of them are as well polished as the Android one.

    An official BBC news app. There are several newsreaders available but they are full of adverts. However the BBC themselves just published a story promoting their upcoming app and website optimised for mobiles but it stated there were no plans for a windows version, just iOS and android. Poor showing from them.

    Honeywell total home connect thermostat app. There was one from a 3rd party, but it stopped working and has been pulled from the store. I requested a copy of the API, but have not heard back from them.

    Might as well add Chase Bank on the list since they are dropping support.

    I'm in the same situation. Switched to damn iPhone just because of the apps, and playing with my beloved windows phone (Ativ S) without a sim card. I'm really excited about MS future products (bands, holothings, windows 10) and I love how their services integrate with devices. For instance, iCloud Drive is underfeatured and a messy thing in comparison of OneDrive. But... but I'm really disappointed by big developers.

    One app I use a lot is LinkedIn. On WP is just cr4p, they don't update the app since december 2013 and it doesn't integrate with WP share men (I share a lot of content on LinkedIn through RSS readers). It lacks a lot of features. Same thing for Tripadvisor, Instagram, and so on. Not talking about other "big" apps that are actually missing like Snapchat, Booking.com, and so on.

    I really hope MS will invest some money to make those enterprises developing universal apps in time for windows 10 release. Putting money in this areas would work better than throwing them in advertising low and mid range phones IMO, at least in this phase where the app gap is still here. Hope things will change during the next months.

    Official 9GAG
    And what about a new linkedin app? Not updated since 2013, no share men integration, no skills confirmation on other profiles. I wrote them multiple times, every time I got the same old answer "ask for feature, we will evaluate them". I deleted my premium subscription few hours ago. Hate them.

    It's a shame you can't develop ONE Banking app, with a choice to attach to the bank(s) of your choice - that would be special.

    BUT, getting the (competing) banks together would be akin to herding cats!

    Of the big 4 Oz banks I could only see CommBank for WP. But not on Win8.1 (for my tablet). wtf?
    Westpac is there for Win8.1 apps but not WP. wtf x 2.
