    I am hoping for very popular apps to go along with the reveal of the flagships. Still hoping for clash of clans and an official Facebook app by Facebook. Google apps, maybe if hell freezes over.

    I would bet there will be -0- Apps for Windows Phone shown. They might jump in their tech (iOS/Android apps to WP), or show some current apps but, I don't see them claiming new apps are coming.

    This show is more about hardware than software....

    If they show Pokmon GO, I'll make it my goal to hug a Nintendo and Microsoft rep.

    I am quite expecting some apps to be announced or partnerships. AFAIR even wp events are for hardware, softwares and apps are given some limelight. So hopefully apps will be announced.

    Tom Warren is eluding to Google being involved in a "surprise" at the event, speculating possible universal Google apps.

    I think hell might freeze over first though.

    Not very optimistic about new apps, IMO it will be more focused on the new hardware, OS, continuum and stuff like that but who knows, lets hope we'll see something more than that :)

    Candy Crush Soda Saga for W10M as an example of porting capabilities.* (Maybe that's why they didn't publish it yet for phones.)

    Universal Facebook Messenger app with actionable toast notifications.

    Overhauled (+universal) Facebook app.

    Twitter app for W10M

    Ported Periscope & Instagram to show off porting capabilities.**

    We will see :) I really hope that I'm not wrong about Messenger, FB and Instagram apps at least. That would explain just a bug fixing update for Instagram, minor updates for Messenger and just a one minor update since a couple of months for Facebook app.

    Snapchat - the 950xl button arrange is made for taking quick screenshots of snaps, so clearly that is the reason for it being designed the way it is. I kid, of course...

    Obviously don't know if this will be mentioned tomorrow or not, but it seems that Google might be bringing some apps over to Windows Mobile: Google may prep YouTube, Hangouts and others for Windows 10 Mobile

    This would obviously be a HUGE boon for the ecosystem and make it possible for some of the Android users who really want to try Windows to do so without crippling their mobile usage.

    Microsoft and Google did just recently decide to drop several patent lawsuits against each other; could be the new-ish CEO's have decided to play nice with each other for a while.

    What could be encouraging about this is that Google services may end up being supported under Windows Mobile 10, which would avoid the problem Blackberry ran into with their Android emulator.

    If anything it could be demos of the whole porting part of WM10. But I still see it as a hardware show. Still, would be nice to think they have some mainstream companies showing how easy a port is now.

    I don't think we should expect to see any new apps as the emphasis of the event will be around the hardware that MSFT is releasing. Not to mention that most developers will probably wait to see what the impact of the event will be on the tech market. I suspect that apps like Snapchat will eventually find their way to WP because of the popularity of W10 and with a lot of push being directed towards enterprises that are already immersed in MSFT products, using WP's as an extension would be a viable option and having the most popular apps would be too appealing for developers to simply ignore.

    If today's event is anywhere close to the last BUILD conference, I'd consider it as a huge success.

    I hope they showcase how Universal apps work from one device to another, and how the experience should be like, and do you really benefit from this experience.

    Pokemon Go on HoloLens....

    My reaction would be,
    1- Get all Pokemon series...
    2- Watch them all again at home and save some outdoor activity money....
    3- Throw saved money at Microsoft and Nintendo
    4- Real Happiness
