Nokia Lumia 820 Giveaway

United Kingdom, here's your chance to win a Nokia Lumia 820 (Reminder)

Just a quick reminder, if you're in the United Kingdom and are interested in winning a Nokia Lumia 820, you only have a few more hours to enter the Expansys/Windows Phone Central giveaway.

We have gotten our hands on (courtesy of Expansys) a red Lumia 820, a wireless charging pillow, and a set of Bluetooth Monster headphones to give away.

All you need to do to enter is:

  1. Live in the United Kingdom
  2. be a registered member, which you can do here.
  3. post in the comments below what local app you'd like to see come to the Windows Phone Store.  It could be a UK banking app, retailer app, or anything that would make life more covenant in your neck of the woods.

We'll shut things down at midnight on Thursday, May 9th and randomly draw one winner shortly there after. Again, you need to be a UK resident to qualify.  Good luck everyone!

United Kingdom, here's your chance to win a Nokia Lumia 820 (Reminder)



BBC iPlayer
First Direct
(for WP7.x as well as WP8 - I know it's a long shot but I suppose that's a good enough reason to be entering this comp to win a Lumia 820!)

Snapchat. I'm hopelessly addicted to it, to the point where I actually carry around two phones. Being able to finally ditch my aging Desire and go full-time with the Lumia 920 would be a dream.

Santander app for English-speakers. :) The mobile site is woefully basic, and if Natwest can pump out a good quality app then others must keep up!

Even though its been Confermed Barclays Mobile Banking App as im sick of getting emails about Mobile Banking and them only having Android and IOS

Beer app. Where to find beer when in a strange town or village. Be it a pub or off licence, but able to show me where to go so I don't have to wander around or try to use outdated search tools that say there is an offie where there isn't.

Virgin media app as well so I can change channel etc when my other half has 'lost' the remote down the side of the sofa and tries to make me watch only way is Chelsea or some such tripe.

One more. A mind reading app to help understand what im being told. or just one that can instantly summarise for me what the other half has just said to me when I wasn't listening.

I love PicsArt app for editing and having some fun with my photos in android, that would be a great windows app, wouldn't be? already has a modern ui style!

It would be great if there was an app for the Metro subway service in Newcastle. It's a great city and would be a complete life-saver for busy-bodies such as students, including me! =)
(Or have this added to Nokia Transit, but it would be great to buy tickets through a separate app.)

There are two apps which will put the icing on the cake:
Barclays/Barclaycard App
BBC iPlayer App

the Paybyphone parking app
BBC iPlayer
Remote control and near vision testing app for UK made optometry test chart i use! (quite specific that one!)

Congrats on convincing me to sign up.
I'd love to see an app similar to Google Now. 
Seamless collection of information that's relevant to you without you having to do anything other than use your phone for some things. It'd be great if it could be expanded to show times for local transport (train times/bus times) and such as well, based on your location.

Sky go would be great to watch the football.....also Santander/first direct banking apps would be useful. Generally though I can get by with the apps I have and they are good quality apps.

Would like to see a BBC iPlayer and Sky Go app. A return of the BBC News app and a Co-Op Bank app would also be nice.

I live in bristol uk and would love to see first group busses implement NFC and a bus fare app, so you could swipe your phone and get on board.

A task management app that asks me whether I've completed a task after a set period of time, which I can then set to ask me again in another set amount of time without having to go into the app and manually reset the alarm.

I think NatWest have very good app, but I really miss a proper football live score application not limited to 5 or 6 leagues only.

A Barclays specific app that makes good use of the NFC capabilities of the phones, that can also be tied into Barclays "ping it" service

Would love an app that showed the safest bike routes in my city (Plymouth) as I rode around. The council has a map on their website showing all of the available routes/conditions, but its a 40mb PDF. Would be great to have an app that would suggest a different and safe route, maybe even giving voice navigation cutting in over music, as i peddled. Would make the 8 mile ride to work everyday a little more interesting as there are hundreds of routes i could take! Plus would absolutely love to see the obligatory iplayer app!

Festival/gig app where you can put in your preferences on music to show what fesitivals or gigs that you may like and how close they are to you!

Barclays bank mobile banking app (not just the mobile authenticator!) and as a bonus Football Manager 2013!

I know its been said plenty of times already but an Iplayer radio app. also a decent data monitor app.

An app that pulls events together based on either GPS location or an entered location. You choose the types of events (sport, music, festival, fayres etc) that you want, it then produces location based results. Or you just go random and let it provide any results!
So often you happen to have time free and it can take forever trying to find localised sites with a "whats on" section.

Hi wpCentral! For me the most frustratingly lacking app is definitely an HSBC Mobile Banking app...Natwest do it so well! Also an official BBC iPlayer radio app the same as Android and iOS is much needed! Ciao for now!

Custom Live Tile app, something you can have cycle between various feeds from social networks and even rss feeds if required. One tile to rule them all!!!

Barclays, Tomtom, Google now! equivalent.
All-in-one free communicator (iMessage, BBM) - just kidding ;-)

I think Nokia's phones are one of the best one a market, and this one would be a nice change, to push my daily driver ( Nexus 4 ) to a secondary place ( at the moment HTC HD7 with WP7.8 hack )

UK GPS Ordnance Survey hiking app. I use Viewranger on Android but would love it or something similar for WP8.

An Odeon Cinema app which can be used as a virtual loyality card with their current points scheme and ofcourse for bookings and listings!

A sky go app, a reliable notification center, data sense, halo with multiplayer would be awesome, Barclays app and last but not least an app that locks your phone when you clap twice xD
