    So it is still dumb for not having the create/move button in the gallery app.
    So what? Android's gallery app also does not have that.

    Moreover, why would those buttons ever exist in any photo gallery app?! The main purpose of such an app is to bring all your media in a single place. It's not a file manager!

    My Lumia 925 on windows 8.1 does play m4a files.
    If they were ripped/encoded in iTunes with the Apple Lossless format, they probably don't. That's the situation with most of my music library, ripped from CDs, back in the dark days when I had an iPhone.

    I don't know whether it's just my smartphone, but in a few albums (i think it was screenshots) I can't share them directly from the gallery. I think he was referring to a similar problem.

    You are right. Screenshots can't be shared directly from the gallery to Whatsapp.

    In my 925 they can.
    But not to Wechat.
    So apart from the example I agree the sharing could be improved.

    Setting a default app.
    Like I would like to open links with sufy instead of ie.
    I would like to open videos with moliplayer instead of the video player.
    I think you should be able to set default app in the settings for different file extensions as we are able to do it on the desktop,

    1) The Resuming,Loading problem exists in Apps developed in silverlight 8.1 or before. Microsoft did acknowledge there was a problem and gave a fix in the form of "fast resume" this although had to be implement by the developer. Hence it would be partially a developers fault if the resuming, loading took a lot of time.
    2)The major reason why WP is so fast and fluid with no lags is because it doesn't allow Apps to run rouge in the background and consume resources. This is the major difference between android and WP. So if WP did multi tasking make sure you're alright with the kind of lag android has.

    For me it's the calendar function. Seriously, no search function and only two weeks past events on the phone. You can't even use the online site as that dosen't have search either.

    Do any of the execs at Microsoft actually use their system for buisness? If so I'd love them to explain how, but then I guess they've got PS's they can phone to use a desktop version of Outlook to look things up for them. Not so easy for all though.

    There was a big update for whatsapp a few days ago. Since then, i can also do it directly from screenshots album.
    Other Apps have the same issues described before. For example IM+, 9gag or Facebook Messenger.

    The over protective keyboard.

    You can't swipe many normal words (that may have naughty meanings) because they won't come up as options, but you also can't add them to the dictionary because they are regular words that already exist, so every time you have to break from your swiping to type them in manually.

    Like swiping for 'punk' will always give you 'pink'
    'sucks' will give you 'ducks' or 'sticks'
    'sexual' will give you 'serial', 'shall', 'asexual' but never sexual.

    Why not just remove the "bad" words from the dictionary and allow the user to add them in if they want?

    1. The keyboard censoring is really annoying since it constantly blocks regular expressions. There should be an option to turn this off.
    2. Random reboots. I hope that the latest update finally got rid of them. Before the update, there were weeks without one reboot, but there were also many reboots happening on a single day with no discernable pattern. (Ativ S)
    3. As far as I know there is no way of synchronising my profile picture across platforms. Shouldn't the "me page", Skype, Microsoft account, and the activated profile on my laptop (I log in with my MS acc) share the same picture automatically? Or are these seperate accounts/profiles after all?
    4. Birthdays (from my contact list) randomly fail to synchronise. The only solution I found for this is to delete the whole birthday calendar and to make a new one which synchronises after its first activation.
    5. The monthly limit for mobile data cannot be set precisely to the dates on which it is replenished since WP and my provider do not use the same amount of days for one month. It should be possible to link this to the counter of my provider or to manually set a duration. Luckily there is an official app from my provider, the WP mobile data app is useless for me.
    6. Why is there still no tile which shows the charge of the battery, including the percentage? The data and storage apps are able to "flip", why not the battery app?
    7. The xbox music app is not suitable to handle large music collections. It only displays covers if it feels like it, synchronisation takes ages, and there is a hard limit for albums per artist.
    8. The office app... oh my gosh! Even on smartphones with large screens it is impossible to work on doc or docx files. It is barely usable to view the plain text of a file.
    9. IE reloads the whole page if you switch between two tabs. Sometimes, if you try to zoom in on a webpage the whole page turns blank and has to be reloaded.
    10. Concerning privacy, there is no global option to delete relevant data, like searches, cookies, and visited pages. You have to manually delete IE history and search history in two different places.
    11. Unlocking is only possible with a 4-digit PIN. Why do the numbers light up when you punch in your code? It is extremely easy for the person sitting next to you on the bus to find out your unlock PIN.

    When looking at the list of previously installed/purchased apps in the Store, everything is presented in one long, unsearchable and unsortable list.

    For example, I'd like to sort my list of 400+ previously installed apps for games, productivity apps, photography apps, demos, purchased apps, etc. as well as by date installed, file size, phone-only, universal app, etc. A search function for specific apps would also help.

    (If this has been mentioned, sorry. I don't feel like reading 27 pages on my phone to find out.)

    The battery tile does flip to show the percentage. You need the Denim update on a Lumia phone (and not the "pseudo-Denim" many L830s came with). Not sure what the non-Lumia update name/number is though.

    How would this be in any way helpful, though? Surely if you want to reinstall an app you've previously had you just search for it by name as you would any other app in the store?

    You should feel lucky. W10 removes this feature and only lets you see purchased apps..No more reinstalling old free apsp in W10

    Thank you for letting me know! Unfortunately, there is no such update for my Samsung Ativ S. I don't know if it will be released eventually. :(

    Concerning the "overprotective keyboard" issue: The posts about the learning feature are really informative. Thanks for this information, Laura.

    Unfortunately, my phone had a random reboot today. So, speaking for the Ativ S, the latest update did not solve the issue.

    That only works for popular apps. If you can't remember the name of an app and it's not popular, chances are it'll be hard to find. Worse, what if you can't remember what it looks like?

    It especially irritates me that I can't find a way to view all the paid apps I own.
