    I will be finally dumping Android at the end of the month. My choice for replacement will be the Lumia 928. On my Android using widgets I can have each of my important family contacts on the home screen texting or calling by just using the widgets. Is there anything similar for the Windows 8/8.1 phones.

    Hello alamosimp, and welcome to WPC!

    Yes, WP allows you to pin almost anything to the start screen: apps, favourite web sites, songs, map locations, and contacts. When you pin a contact to the start screen, you'll get all of that person's feed updates right from that tile, and it acts as a speed dial: it takes only two taps to call that person.

    Pin things to

    Hope that helps!

    Yes that helps. Thank you. Looking forward to getting the one final piece of putting everything under one umbrella.
