    I find it really amusing how upset people got with Nokia HERE being put on the back burner (or having MS take over) because they want to concentrate on more popular OS. As a business I would have done the exact same thing.

    Just goes to show the misplaced affection people have with companies is never a good thing to hold on to. Then again, people should remember that it's a company and their acting in their best interest. WP only has 3% marketshare worldwide. Everyone is thinking W10 will suddenly change this position when it's released (don't see that happening). Nokia either does business or shuts it's doors. What's so hard to understand?

    This week is going so slowly! I've been convinced every day felt like a Friday. Feels like a month since my last weekend!

    It's not for want of things to do either... Work is manic!

    Yeah, there's been no slow down here. :/

    I think it's the anticipation, for me anyway, of having some time off. :P

    I hope it's sunny while I'm there! Looking like 14 to 11C at the moment. Looks like a jacket is still required.

    Maybe wait on the photography guide until after the Denim update? Well that will probably be a few months until everyone gets it... :P

    I like what they are doing. Although you do have Gmaps on Android which are amazing as a map even here there is just no way to use it as navigation, at least here. And that is what Here does amazing. And holding off the development of WP app doesn't mean there won't be updates in the future, first they just have to polish their Android and iOS app. And people should really understand that they just can't be profitable with only WP app on the market meanwhile they spent millions to buy Navteq few years ago. This could only work WP had about 50% market share, which it can never achieve, but it doesn't. They can't just blindly support the OS some fanboys want.

    The Android app is really nice. If they do the same thing for WP (if they get around to it) it will please a lot of people. I sometimes wonder why WP seemed so difficult to get working right with HERE maps. On my N8 it was great but WP was always lacklustre feeling. I have a feeling the iOS version will look a lot like the Android one.

    gMaps is ok but it won't work for me overseas. :P

    I doubt she reads this forum much either. :P

    Denim may be out for some in the EU but it probably won't be on my L920 any time soon. :P Not that I care.

    I use Navigate aka Route 66 since the HTC One V Android and now on iOS. I'd be installing Here when my Honor arrives.

    You almost get this feeling that confidence in MS is at rock bottom as this year comes to an end. In a way you really can't blame any company for bypassing WP this year.

    It's really nice. Trust me. I think they have to sort out a couple of things with route selection but that's about it. As it is, it's brilliant. If they can add voice search like gMaps that would be amazing.

    Well for me Here on WP works OK only design isn't to most eye pleasing, it looks a bit outdated compared to Android version. Other than that it worked quite well when I needed it, not like I need it much though :)

    She wouldn't understand English, she learnt German in school ;)
    I kind of care about it since it's probably the last official update for my L820 being my primary phone. Although It's holding a bit better in battery department this days I still have 62% at the moment, however I didn't use it that much, not more than 30 minutes :P

    I use it a lot when I travel so I've given it a good bash this year. :P

    I just think the version on Android makes the WP look dated. The Android version is so elegant looking and crisp. Maybe it's my screen... :P

    That sounds a bit like my L920. I just had to switch on GPS for 5 minutes and my battery would be at 70% from 100%. Check some emails and do some things with data and I'm down to 40%. I don't miss those days at all.

    Well I have those things always ON since if I have smartphone I will use its functions. I don't want do fiddle with settings every time I want to go running or turn on internet connection everytime I want to look for something.
