    I am very much accustomed to Google Apps, some are mandatory like the email and Google maps. I hear that Google no longer makes app for Windows? Is this true? Is that a temporary thing? Are there any good alternatives? I am hoping to get 950XL.

    Finally for those who recently switched from Android to Windows phone, how is your experience so far?

    I came over from a Nexus last year (I dropped and broke my Android). Got a basic Lumia 630 to try out and here I am 14 months later about to upgrade up a 640XL. The transition has been smooth enough.

    Its true that there are no Google apps. But the only one I miss is YouTube. I still use Gmail (via Microsofts Mail app), Microsoft's Maps are far far faster and fluid than Google maps on my Nexus. I use Microsoft Office rather than Google docs and OneDrive to auto backup my photos to the cloud. Cortana and OneNote are far better than Google Now / Keep in my opinion. I still use Google to search mobile web rather than Bing.

    So yep, the only thing I miss is YouTube App but there some great alternatives like Metro tube or just use the mobile version.

    Metrotube works just fine on my phone. Cant understand why people get hung up on it not being the official app. I like the dark theme, it carries through all my channels from my google account. Playback is flawless for me.
