i was sort of saying - everyone says - windows phone - great reviews - but no apps
..i wasnt initially thinking of Nokia - when it came to the app glut
but sure- spend 7 billion on a phone company - to build apps. Maybe if we spent - 5 billion to get a chain of gas stations - they could write some apps too!
but it's too bad...we just cant seem to think of a company - that could write apps - that didnt make phones or sell gas for a living. There must be one out there somewhere - willing to invest - a billion - on its own employees - to make some apps....
it will come to me...
But for sure Microsoft is doomed. i mean... they have no apps!!
@elmer:Yup. I am using my 920 phone's alarm clock to wake me up, and never fails me up to now.
They did make apps like YouTube except Google consistently blocking it. But I agree, MS should have some studios dedicated to build WP apps, like maybe photo, video, music editing tools. They should build some cool fun apps for users.
I believe having WP with different display resolution is a major problem for companies that want to make cross-platform Apps. Since iOS and have fixed resolution, designing UI for them is easy because relative position are fixed. For WP you have to support multiple resolution so it's relatively painful for Apps written in iOS to port to WP.
Of course you can declare your supported resolution(s) on the Marketplace, but Nokia had done that for some of their earlier Apps and they pissed off WP (that don't use any of the supported resolutions) users.
