    I could not agree more. It is frustrating to see adults wanting and acting as teenagers. Like I said before if you life depend of a chatty app to choose a phone platform you have issue.
    No doubt Separate But Equal type developers has not given their best effort when it comes to building apps for WP. TuneIn Radio is a prime example. They don't even plan to do better. The other platforms have a paid version but WP still doesn't. And the last time this app was updated was December 2013. It drops connection. Frequent restarts and clipping all day long and because it is free, TuneIn isn't motivated in the slightest to do better. They could do a better job but many are flat out lazy and it shows on the platform. So OP your news isn't sad. Toy apps like snapchat are simply not that important to spend money in a new platform for me. What is sad is that snap chat is worth anyone forking over the money in a new platform to use it. I gotta believe there is more to this story but its all about you. My friends would have to get over themselves. Fortunately, my friends are all adults. :)

    Should a person buy a phone for its apps or functionalities [performance and/or quality]?
    I've been dying to ask this question to many in the blogosphere and to those like boothes18. I respect and understand some of your frustrations, but if you are going to choose a phone for its apps I have an old clunked Samsung phone in my drawer that I am selling for $10 bucks. I totally understand a teen that is looking for apps like Snapchat, Whatsapp, Instagram and others just like it, the need to keep the status and silly communication all its "friends" are using to be on the hip. But, something that grim my gears its to hear and adult acting like a kid, judging a phone for its apps. If apps is what are you looking for get an iPhone 4, Galaxy 2 or 3. If you want to try other phone for what it offers then I don't have any issue with that I've done it but at the end always came back to WP.
    I've been with the WP platform since 2011. I survived WP7 (that's when the app situation was really bad!) and when I migrated to my 928 everything was wonderful! I hate to judge a phone by its apps but certain apps makes a phone what it is. And I hate to admit it but apple does make quality products. While it might be interesting going from the Windows Phone flagship to a "cheaper" iphone, I trust that everything will work out. And if it doesn't, Icon will be ready to resume duties.

    Not just snapchat (and btw I am a kid in college) but official apps seems to be poorer on our beloved platform

    I saw the headline and I thought it was about Casey Kasem's death or how the Spurs took my Heat to school.

    RIP Casey. And that was a schooling and a half. To win each game by at least 15 is amazing.
