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!
That's a niche bank, though. Nobody in my family is eligible. All of the veterans in my family are dead (WW2/Korea era).USAA also has a banking app.
Yeah the app gap is a big game breaker for Windows Phone, while it is keep getting better there are still a lot of apps missing, but i think most people that buy a Windows phone know about the lack of apps and dont care about it
True. that's the only reason why im still with WP. The hardware and its design is second to none (I have a 1520). Lumia cameras are the best hands down. And the OS, though still somewhat immature, is more of a true OS as opposed to a massive launcher, which is what IOS really is. Its features are very unique like Cortana. And even though she is going to the other platforms she still won't operate the same as on WP.As for the unique features or exclusives, what does ios and android do unique or exclusive that would set them apart if all 3 had the exact same apps? I ask that in all seriousness. I'm not sure of anything. I think it's the ui in general and hardware that are important. We need a more high end phones...
But how great would it be to seamlessly sync all of my info between my phone and computer via my windows account. ... some day!
For me, it's my bank apps. They are used so frequently that my daily driver has to have them. Luckily I am blessed enough to be able to have multiple devices. For those who can't, Windows phone is sorely lacking in some necessary applications. It's unfortunate.

I'm in the same boat. I've been using Windows Phone since the HD7 launched on T Mobile back in 2010. There are a number of apps that I really want that are not available in any form on Windows Phone. After the Windows 10 phones come out later this year, I'm going to hold off on upgrading to them to see if the app situation changes. If a few of the apps I'm looking for come over to Windows 10, I'll upgrade to that platform and hope the rest follow. If none of them do or look like they will, I'm not sure what I'll do. I don't like iPhones and I hate Google (as a company).This is boiling down to the success of Windows 10. I have personally decided to hold off on upgrading my Lumia Icon to one of the new Lumias due out this fall while I watch how well Windows 10 is received by developers. If it's not I will have to move to a different operating system.
I love Windows Phone and Windows 10 (Go Cortana!) and do not want to, but really the main reason for these smartphones is their usefulness as an everyday tool. Without many of the localized apps and on par high profile apps my phone is just an expensive pretty toy.
Fingers crossed that Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile become successes and viable alternatives to iOS and Android.
