In other news, Instagram for Windows Phone gets Direct and Video support, Twitter gets updated with a new UI and Google announces that all their services are coming to WP in the form of native apps.

Well, now let's get back to reality

First time i hear someting coming to windows and later on android and iOS. Is dis dream???

All these official apps showing up is great news. I wonder if everyone is finally buying in to WP, or buying in to what 8.1 has to offer.

Wow, with only 35,000 passengers a day for NY Waterways, there is no excuse for other organizations with much larger potential user bases to not get on board with Windows Phone!

Agreed.  This was the one I was waiting for.  When people complain about the app divide it is these types of local and extremely useful apps that we are still missing.  It is a very welcome addition to my phone.
