NOKIA LUMIA NEEDS MORE AND BETTER APPS!

This is frustrating me, the fact that Iphone has pretty much EVERYTHING and the Lumia just misses the Apps part. i chose the Lumia 900 over the Iphone because it was smarter, better looking and different which i still love about it.

Its the Apps that let it down, they arent great quality and there are hardly any compared to the Iphone. Aka, Temple Run and Angry Birds. CUMMON NOKIA!!!

Hi beccikidd,

 

Applications are designed on various by the developer's choice. For example you mentioned Temple Run, which is on iOS and Android, but not on the WP OS. This is because the developer's have not yet made a version for the WP OS. This is not something Nokia design and pushes out.

 

If you wish to know more information about these particular applications, contact the developer directly. 

 

Let us know how you get on.

 

Regards,

It's happening, keep in mind that this is still a very new platform. As Windows Phone market share gains popularity and grows developers keep taking more notice and are factoring in the environment for their apps. If you look at charted app releases from launch of iPhone and Android compared to WP7 in the same timeframe where WP7 is now. WP7 is actually releasing more apps compared to the other two environments. It's happening, just taking time.
