    All you need to do is Swipe down and you get the view of the whole month. It's different but very usable and works with no issues. Early on there were issues that is for sure. But it is rock solid now.
    No swipe down on the widget I'm using. It's called Outlook Agenda and is an official MS product.


    Well I understand what you are saying. But again, it's a losing battle to think we are anonymous on the internet. The sad thing is, one would have to go the Apple route to get the most anonymoity.
    A major reason I'm toughing it out on my Sony Xperia X is that I'm waiting for the official Sailfish OS to drop onto it. Privacy forward.

    Well, when I say Outlook, I mean the outlook app not a widget. Again the only app that doesnt work that I wish did is Groove music. That is an awesome app but it won't recognize music on an SD card. That is disappointing.

    I'm not fooled. But Microsoft has proven more benign in their post data mining usage, whereas Google is under the impression that the whole evolution of the species is culminated in their absolute RIGHT to serve you ads and that your PRIMARY function in the universe is to suck them up like a sponge. And they want to target, refine, retarget, refine, microtarget until they hone in and hit a nerve. They are relentless, shameless and implacable. I have never been hounded with advertising on a Windows Phone to the degree I am on Android and IMHO even if tales of targeting ads based on the email you just sent are "debunked" I still believe that (like every service from every company) they have bots crawling all over my personal content and IT IS KNOWN that Google's (and Alphabet's) primary revenue stream is advertising. Microsoft's is software and cloud services. Google makes software, yes. But their raison d'etre is serving ads.

    Do I have Facebook? No. I'm not insane.

    Google lead the charge. Facebook carriers the banner PROUDLY. Twitter is a heavy hitter. These companies are engaged in psyops against the populace in order to manipulate them to their own advantage. Call it tin foil hat conspiracy theory if you want, but I'm not in actual fear. I don't NOT use tech because of it. I'm far from being a luddite. I'm just careful about what baskets I choose to put my eggs in.
    I agree with what you said but, at the same time, Google doesn't exactly hide what they're doing. Most people purchase knowing fair well and even enjoying the trade off. I'm not sure who's more to blame, Google or the population at large.

    People wouldn't buy in if they weren't getting value weather it's just perceived or not. People must realize Windows Mobile is dead. Just move on, Google is not the devil, and neither is Apple. I thought I would miss live tiles and a year later I really don't miss it at all. No one was a bigger fan of win mobile than me. But life is good now that I have the latest and greatest apps for Mobile.

    I don't know they have a choice. It's either iOS with their issues or Windows with its lack of apps. I wouldn't say people "enjoy" the tradeoff, more like put up with it. Personally, I pay for the ad-free experience every chance I get but it's not the norm amongst the Android crowd.

    It all comes down to choice. Unfortunately with the state of Windows we only have two choices. :(

    Like I say - IOS sucks slightly less and has more apps.

    To the OP, I often noticed memory leaks in WP.

    What's a memory leak? Is that like Alzheimer's for phones?

    lol

    No, it is a programming issue.

    When any operation system- Linux, UNIX (MacOS), Windows, Android... - runs a program or app, the OS has to allocate some of the memory or RAM to store stuff like variables, application state, current time l, and other things.

    In non managed code like C or Assembly, the programmer is in charge of releasing stuff from active memory when complete so it can be used again. If they dont, the memory in the device will be used up and the program as well as device will fail until a restart happens.


    In our phones and in most modern programming environments, this job is assigned to the OS under a process called the Garbage Collector. The "garbage" or stuff not being used is routinely picked up by the process. When a leak occurs here, it is the fault of the OS. Android used to.have horrid memory leaks in Eclair through jellybean.
