Are there even any rumours about Google make their app collection official for WP? YouTube, Translate, Maps.. WTF
Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Actually there is a Google app on WP it's Google search app
I dunno. I gave up every Google service aside from YouTube and found it's not that big of a change.
Outlook / Google Mail
MS Office / Google Drive
Here Maps / Google Maps
Duck Duck Go / Google Search
I guess I'm kind of out of the loop, but you don't need to be a slave to Google.
I would say both MyTube and Metrotube have a solid reputation. For Translate, I don't know... I do use a German/English dictionary, so I have no idea if there's a good alternative to Translate.
And no I don't want to use third party apps made by god knows who..
Highly doubtful, I'll believe it when I see it. Microsoft as an entire company poses much more of a direct competitive threat to Google than any other company on earth. Everyone thinks Windows Phone irks Google into acting this way, but in reality it's Bing. What used to be a punch line around the Google campus, is now a very credible market share competitor to Google's primary source of revenue (advertisements). Bing doesn't ever need to surpass Google (it wont) but it can be large of enough to throw a wrench in Google's attempt at a search engine monopoly and force Google to continue to innovate to stay one step ahead and has made Google's most secure revenue source no longer able to rest on its laurels.Are there even any rumours about Google make their app collection official for WP?

I am aware that you wrote that. I was merely trying to convince you to change your viewpoint given the reputations of both of those apps.
But look, if Windows Phone doesn't have the apps you want and you think it's ugly, why do you use it?
The author of app is not someone anonymous, at least for dev account registration you must pay with a credit card and MS will know a real contact information about the developer. They can make him troubles if he going to do something wrong to you.I don't want to use third party apps made by god knows who..
Exactly, this is the same person who said that ALL Windows Phone apps are ugly and is now complaining about the fact that they don't want to use third party apps for Google services when Google refuse to support WP.
OP here's a tip for you, sell your WP and go buy an Android device!!!
Bro, do you even read my comments? Third party apps are not an option. I think its time all WP users to stop settling with this mediocre situation and push f*cking Google already..
