    I still hope for a true Messenger App.
    3rd party messengers will be coming in floods with Mango as the necessary API's for it are part of the many they announced at MIX11. You'll see plenty of beejive type clients with logins for all the major IM platforms.

    I watch music videos, but mainly I watch video gaming clips that me and my friends have posted.
    ah semantics...
    your answer corresponds to the question:
    "What do you use YouTube for?"
    While the question I asked was:
    "What do you use for YouTube?"
    Which, when paraphrased;
    I ask what client you use for YouTube?

    I honestly don't even use Messenger, I would much rather hope for Facebook chat either integrated as well or through the official app as that's where I really use IMing with friends.

    I don't doubt this is coming to MS's Facebook app (possible OS integration?). Worst case, you use a 3rd party app that does it, and does it well.

    That one does work well (I personally prefer YouTube by lazyworm, however I do not own a Bluetooth stereo headset so I wouldn't be able to test it out) does that app not work with bluetooth headsets?

    It would be nice to have it integrated but within the Facebook app itself would be nice too now that multi-tasking is coming.

    Using $ to abbreviate any S within a name that is related with American capitalism is a total fail.

    Hmm... I wonder if there's a certain API that Google doesn't give out to independent devs that allows for that... I don't think thats the case though as the whole audio thing would be a local on device issue I think...

    This is the reply to the email I sent lazyworm support...

    "Hi Luis

    Sorry, but I’m afraid I don’t have the answer for this one. We haven’t tried with any Bluetooth devices. If we get our hands on a set we’ll be sure to test it out. If it’s a software issue that we can control, then hopefully we’ll be able to fix it, if not, we may have to wait for Microsoft to address it. Sorry I cant’ be more help.

    Cheers"

    What's the whole deal with Bluetooth stereo headsets not working with YouTube videos? (this isn't just your app its also SuperTube and the Microsoft plugin) I don't really use stereo Bluetooth headsets cuz I like rockin the little earbuds lol but I have a friend that does use em and I just wanted to clarify that with an actual dev...

    I guess so. Like I said its just my opinion. Windows phone isn't about Xbox, its a phone, which means anybody including say, PS3 fanatics, can get one, more Xbox Live integration means more menu to go through or options to pick which makes things complicated, if they just want it for a phone it could turn them off of Xbox even more. I'm sure Microsoft would want the exact opposite. However the way things are, Xbox kicks royal ***, Sony sucks donkey balls so **** PS3 and here's to hoping they do expand on that integration! :D
    I know what you're saying about keeping it simple and quick, but would allowing for voice communication make it even more simple and continue with the in and out strategy that m$ (oh no... not again!) has? Being able to send my response by voice would be a lot quicker than typing out the message.

    I can quickly say "Get the gang together so we can play some call of duty tonight around 9:30pm" a lot faster than typing that out... and I type very fast.

    i can't tell you how glad i am that i went with xbox vs. ps3. i just got a console in September/October... my last being 10+ years ago with ps1.

    because it's not illegal too

    good point.

    why not contribute to the thread rather than being the dollar sign police? lol :rolleyes:

    Using $ to abbreviate any S within a name that is related with American capitalism is a total fail.
    fail would be to @$$ume that it is being used to relate to american capitalism rather than a person just wanting/love to use it.

    why does it bother people so much that someone chooses to use a $ instead of an S?

    "The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law."

    back on topic... Turn by Turn is what I am excited about, the most. Multitasking comes in a close second. It's a need for me whereas Multitasking is a want.

    i am more excited about this platform than any of the others i'm currently using.

    i honestly can't wait for Nokia devices to start hitting AT&T shelves. although i barely use my camera, when i do, i want it to work well.

    Unfortunately I think the only thing we will see is Mango released for developers by this summer and then sometime this fall/winter a release onto existing handsets. This would corrospond with the next wave fo WP handsets running mango.

    While a true windows live messenger app is pretty high on my list, true multitasking ranks a bit above it, in interested to see how its implemented on the phone, coming from a BB I has a side key set to the app swapper... Most of these phones don't have that, so will it be a long press on the windows key with an option to select task manager? That would be easiest to do in my head.

    Voice messages would be nice to see in xbl bit not a requirement. More speed out of that app is what I would like to see... Extras shouldn't be extras, should be built in.

    Edit: excuse the bad grammar and spelling, posting from my phone and failing at it.

    Well with voice dictation coming to the keyboard I'm sure it'll make things easier.

    bad point.
    Actually I directed my "good point" remark to the part where he said "its MS not M$" because that is a good point, it is a fact that an abbreviation for Microsoft is MS and not M$. Now it doesn't mean that you can't use it you can do whatever you damn well please, and there is a chance that someone out there originally used the M$ abbreviation as a pun intended for them being extremely money hungry.


    i really hope this update is available by summer... maybe they'll announce a date and what not at there up and coming event this month?... i man can dream right?...
    I also hope they could release a more solid date even if its just a month that they give it'll give us a good time frame of when they'll be releasing it.

    i'm sure you're right that there are people (mostly ps3/mac fanboys) that do that, but i'm pro MS ;) ... i just think the $ sign is cool. i sometimes do the same with my my name as it starts with an S as well.


    I also hope they could release a more solid date even if its just a month that they give it'll give us a good time frame of when they'll be releasing it.
    a month would be great, but if they don't make they cut, i see a lot of people getting mad/upset.

    i wouldn't mind if they decided to have a open/closed beta for updates like motorola has been doing with the atrix.

    I personally would want to see public transit directions integrated into bing like it currently is on the Google maps app for WM. I too am also counting on a summer release instead of fall for 2 reasons which are 1. I want to enjoy it without school work interfering and vice versa 2. I want to see it before I get older.

    On a less Mango-y note I finally got the 7392 update... Well the notification at least, I gotta wait to get to my desktop to update it... Dang speaking of mango I hope that they can implement OTA updates after mango, looking at it from here, I'm not sure updates after mango are even gonna be that big anymore. Make a manual backup feature available through Zune and all future patch updates (that's probably all they're really gonna be) OTA.

    I am hoping that Microsoft does not let WP stagnate the way Google has with Android and Apple with iOS. Some updates should be OTA but at least 1 or 2 a year should be major updates requiring connection to a PC. Security fixes and the like should always be OTA in order to protect a maximum amount of users as fast as possible.

    I thought mango was given to devoplers already? I guess if its not that's what this event is for in like two weeks. then it should only be a month or two until its finalized and given to the carriers and who effing knows when they'll decide to give it out maybe they'll give it to us on Zune instead or if there smart both. They need to work fast im glad there is more features then just the big ones they've announced its good there also focusing on functionality

    Nope, Mango hasn't been given to anyone yet. And the event on the 24th says that it is for an advnaced preview of the Mango update, and does not mention it being released to developers yet. If they don't release it to developers on the 24th, or shortly after, I would be greatly suprised. Microsoft needs to get this update out early enough to allow developers time to build apps to take advantage of the new features on day 1 of the launch.

    Yeah I hear you on the stagnating updates deal, I actually feel the exact same way in that one or two updates a year should be major requiring a PC, but c'mon a security patch? well I'm updating as I type but it would've been nice to have been able to do something like that OTA.

    That's true becuz this is a biggg update **** I hope they surprise us or something
    I Agree lol but I doubt they're going to surprises us with anything anymore given that all these leaks have come out haha... just more like "officially announcing" the features.
