something is wrong with my WinPh8.

    Compare to my WinPh7, my winph8 is not doing what it should.

    • auto-correction is not as good. Key cursor moves around in inappropriate places when I type this. Map doesn't have fav list. Map doesn't do turn by turn navigation anymore. Map direction is whacky. Music can't shuffle my entire collection. Music cannot do FM radio. And three of my Xbox Live games I bought can no longer be found on the marketplace.

    Is my WinPh8 dying on me? Or he just hates me?

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    I know FM has gone because no phones have radio any more.

    I've lost my two XBox Star Wars games. Both the Hoth thing and Cantina thing won't reinstall as they are no longer published. Oh and the XBox Live Full house Poker won't install either but I haven't checked that one for a week or so.

    Which games have you lost?

    @Michael Butler:

    I lost The Harvest (RPG), Tentacles, DoDon something something (that Japanese vertical airplane shooter game with tons of bullets all over the screen). I was quite excited to play that DoDon something game on my new phone because my older phone gets a bit slower when the screen gets too busy, but, I cannot find the game in the store anymore.

    Yes. The Harvest is telling me

    "Your version of the Windows Phone software is not supported by this application"

    So maybe it will be available if/when they upgrade.
