Music App in Windows Phone 8.1 Sucks

The music player is slower and sucks even more than before on Windows Phone 8.1

1) You can no longer swipe to change songs

2) You can no longer prevent Xbox music accessing your metadata, meaning fucked up album arts and artist arts

3) Very slow compared to music+videos

4) Aesthetically unpleasant, it looks very unpolished

What Windows Phone Needs To Do To Get iOS and Android users

Windows Phone 8.1 is here but here are the things that need to be done in order to get users from iOS and Android platforms.

Marketing… Put an oversized touchscreen that replicate a WP in major retailers. Let it show off the new lock screen settings, and let them play around with the start screen, including the background image. First impressions for those toying with WP for the first time helps. You need an eye catcher to draw them in.

Why I Hate Windows Phone and Leaving it after 2 months

I got a windows phone for Christmas this year, a Huawei W1 for straight talk. Basically a 520. I really tried to give the platform a chance, but there was nothing but bugs. (Props to the OS to run on 512mb of ram though). The phone I had before was a Pantech Hotshot, a 4th gen iPod touch and I own a Nexus 7 with 4.4.3 I was very excited to try out this platform that I’ve heard so much about, which is why I chose it. And the first thing I noticed when I used it for the first time was how smooth everything was, and especially on the specs it was running on. The thrill of the customizable accents throughout the OS and all of the live tiles was with me after the first month. People always asked me what kind of phone I had, because of how cool it looked, and I was glad to explain. Now, the bugs. My phone started randomly turning off about twice a day, and my friend with his HTC 8x does this also.

Are people REALLY this cheap? What’s a few bucks here and there to support developers trying to make a living? Is this really the message we want to send to Android and iOS developers considering making apps for Windows Phone? I hope this thing gets pulled from the marketplace. It’s got to be violating some aspect of the marketplace rules. Here is a quote from a developer who seems to be very annoyed by it.

On Apple iPhone 5S 64 bit architecture

64-bit is meaningless without 4gigs of RAM AND optimized applications. The 5s has a paltry 1gig of RAM and less than 40 optimized apps. That’s not to say that the SOC isn’t a great performer, it is, but that has little to nothing to do with the marketing gimmick of “64-bit.”
