Joe Belfiore continues to tease on Twitter, new app to be released tomorrow

Joe Belfiore is continuing to tease followers on Twitter that an app is set to be released for Windows Phone tomorrow. To kick off the coming week, consumers will be able to download a special app from the store, but it's not currently known what we'll be seeing. Much like Pandora (see the above photo), Microsoft's working hard to get more big name apps on the platform.

Good times ahead, folks. What do you believe will be released this coming Monday?

  • Please God, let it be Instagram.
  • If that was to happen, the forums would be a far more spam-free place :D
  • Agreed.... I don't want it but it will help WP8 secure third position easily.
  • This!
  • For the love of god let it be instagram so I can get rid of my iPod touch that I use exclusively for instgram
  • I do the same thing lol. Use an iPod just for a few apps that I can't get on WP
  • +yet. :)
  • Still, an iPod is a terrific device. I am thinking about carrying my old iPhone again just as a music player. For the life of me i can't figure xBox Music or whatever it's called out. 3 times now i unintentionally started blasting music in the subway because i wanted to look up a song. Can you be intimidated by a music player? Additionally some songs crack a little bit when i connect my Phone to my car.
  • Difficult for them to make it more unintuitive.
    Great phone, awful music player.
  • Please god, let instagram burn a fiery death
  • Agreed instagram is the most retarded application I have ever seen to date
  • Never seen it or used it, but full agree with you, you would think its Crack the way people go on here, people forget WP 8 is abit like JayZ, BIG PIMPING, if you want instat Shit, stay with ur IPOD, you have Facebook, what's so great about INSTAT-SHIT ? SOMEONE PLS EXPLAIN..........
  • To sum it up, Instagram is FAcebook's photo-sharing software...but on its own site. It's like how Twitter is Facebook status updates on their own site.
  • and yet no one questions 'WHAT IS TWEET-SHIT?!" because Twitter's features have been available all along.
  • Instagram is what younger people (under 30) use now instead of Facebook. I teach at a HIgh School, and Instagram is basically their communication system. Although most of us could really care less, not having Instagram is a HUGE disadvantage for a platform. If Microsoft is going to make any waves in mobile, this app is a must have. It's the biggest hole in their app store.
     
  • Correct. My wife is a High School teacher and her kids ask her about her Arrive and Windows phone and how to get one, only to say "No Instagram? No thanks then". Again folks, this isn't about if YOU use it, it's about what's good for the platform. Bring it.
  • THIS!
  • +1
  • It will be AWESOME.. Why? Because people will stop complaining lol..
  • Ditto,I could care less about it
    But I'm tired of hearing about it
  • You could care less? So you actually do care a little bit then?
  • I could care less = I couldn't care less.  They're both valid phrases in the English language that mean the same thing.
  • Em, no, they're not. I COULD care less means it would be possible for me to care less. I COULDN'T care less means I care so little it would be impossible to care less. Their meanings are diametrically opposed. One is correct English, the other is an Americanism because Americans can't speak English. :-)
  • Just stfu already
  • The phrase is "shut the fuck up", my good sir.
  • Agreed that Americans cannot speak English, well at least properly.. ;)
  • LOL +1
  • Lol :D
  • Please God, I don't care. Why? Because no matter the kind of app that gets announced, it will be exclusive to WP8 and not 7.8.
  • I hope it'll be available for 7.8
  • Yes-let it be instagram so I don't have to hear about instagram anymore! (no, I don't use it)
  • Maybe official YouTube app?
  • Nah, Google hates WP. Plus Metro Tube is great.
  • What he said.
  • I think the same who needs YouTube app when MetroTube Supertube etc...are so fucking Great!
  • Have metrotube for that.
  • I expect to see instagram launch with the 928. Likely exclusive for a short period of time
  • Yeah same as data sense supposed to be, still waiting on it
  • I doubt it would be a single phone exclusive, maybe Lumia brand I general.
  • temple run + instagram = perfection!!!
  • Though I am not a user of this app, I hope that for the sake of the platform that the pleas for Instragram are answered. This will definitely add to the legitimacy of WP.
  • I feel like we aren't lucky enough for Instagram to come on Monday
  • Insta*poop*
  • When WPCentral announce tomorrow different app than Instagram, the world will become in a KAOS. Spammers are already preparing himself. They are drinking some vitamined water, workout, cleaning their own keyboards and everything you can imaging. Get ready, is comming.....
  • I really want subway surfers but that isn't it, I'm betting on instagram
  • I'd love if Subway Surfers shows up soon. Instagram may be dropping Monday, but I'm leaning towards Viber or tumblr.
  • Never even thought of Tumblr being the app. I'd really like that.
  • I think that Nokia announced there will be an exclusive Lumia tumblr app alongside another version for everyone else using WP8, therefore I do find it somewhat unlikely that the announcement would have something to do with tumblr or foursquare as they seem to be hailing from Nokia rather than from Microsoft.
  • I'm betting on instagram because they had 2 instawithlove everyone's asking and they probably want to get to all the markets
  • I'd love to see viber but I won't get my hopes up!
  • It's already there with 2.5 star rating
  • that's the messenger version
    other versions are the voice calling for 7,5 for lumias
  • I think it's Viber to. They did say before the end of March or early April
  • Looking forward to the announcement. I'd love this to become a routine called "Microsoft Mondays", where every Monday or more frequently on Mondays there is a highlight or signature app announced.
  • I really doubt it will be instagram.... But who knows?
  • Change 'announced; to 'released' and I'm with you.
  • That is an excellent list of apps that would provide a lot of enjoyment for users.
  • +1
  • That would be really cool. It would generate buzz every week and keep Windows Phone in the news. Reviewers are only cautiously optimistic about Blackberry; now is the time to put them to sleep!
  • Nikefuel app would be nice
  • Seriously, I need that app so bad. I'm tired of plugging my Fuel band into my Surface Pro all the time...
  • Its probably something gay like instagram.. I would rather see dropbox
  • Stupid remark.
  • Seconded.
  • I doubt it will be something gay. We just got Scruff a few days ago. Oh... You were using gay to refer to stupid things you don't like! Sorry, my bad...
  • Haha!
  • +1
  • Why would they release an app of your face?
  • Instagram is not "Gay", because it has never made me happy...heehee
  • Silly comment of the Day...
  • Temple Run 2... I don't care about all of these stupid and useless apps. Who the hell uses Pandora? 1% of WP community?
  • Honestly how many people really care for Temple Run? I've never heard 'I wanted to try out WP but they don't have Temple Run' from anyone. Its always been the lack of official Pandora and Instagram apps that drive possible converts away.
  • I use Pandora every day and know plenty others who do as well.
  • Thats funny I was thinking the same thing until my girlfriend tried out my phone and the first thing she looked for was temple run. She promptly handed it back to me...
  • I'd never used Pandora until it was released on WP. Now I love it! Use it constantly at home.
  • Really wish it's facebook remake.
  • 100% this
  • I wouldn't mind that.
  • But remade how? I'd like a share feature, but other than that I don't know what else it should have... besides better notifications. I don't want that android apple version, that shit just looks like http://touch.facebook.com
  • Facebook's app still has a long way to go in Windows Phone. The open graph apps are unknown for the platform, it doesn't know how to show them, how to redirect notifications, Share button is essential at this time. Groups' notifications redirect to the group, not the post itself, and sometimes it can be really troublesome. There's also this weird bug when tapping the comment button, instead of showing the comments on the photo you're looking at, it shows you the comments of another one.
    I think I made myself clear, maybe a bit too much :P
  • what ever happened to Jetpack Joyride?!?!?!?!?
  • Seriously, who even uses Pandora?
    Ohhh, you know, 59 millions users in 2012, and 101 Million Dollars in Revenue... that's who.
  • Judging by my firewall alerts at work - over 90% of the people in my office use Pandora.
     
    It's very popular.
  • I care about Pandora and was one of the apps I missed most coming from android to WP8
  • Instagram (crosses fingers)
  • Pandora like app, it has to be a remake of Spotify, the beta was just to get a working version while they make a proper one.
  • Probably viber. Hopefully Hulu plus. But probably not instagram lol.
  • Hulu Plus or HBOGo would be great!
  • HBO GO would be nice, but even more so...i still need my WSJ news and Fidelity apps!!! WSJ live doesn't count.
  • HBOGO would be perfect! But I want instagram though.
  • Fidelity app suppose to be in the works
  • Hulu + would be awesome!
  • I've had windows phone since day 1 with my hd7. Then went to Lumia 900 and now 920. Its always bothered me that we don't have a Hulu app but on day 1 windows 8 gets it. Where's the windows phone version.
  • YES. I can already take a picture through a filthy sock and tweet it, so I have no need for Instagram.
  • Add another vote for Hulu plus that would be amazing !
  • It won't be Hulu as that would be another US only app and JB said this would be international.
  • maybe subway surfers or viber
  • What the fck with guessing? Are we little children to him? He has to be a little bit more respectful with this shit especially when so many of us pissed off with how slow the os is developing.
  • A bit angry?
  • Very angry.
  • He said that jst to get ppl to anticipate for something good tomo.. What kinda idiot are you if you blast ppl for trying to build up some excitement??
  • Your parents were close relatives? Do I understand you correctly?
  • Calm down, it's all in fun. I've been using WP since the beginning and am actually enjoying the fun Joe is having on Twitter.
  • Do you really find it amusing to be teased for days and then being given apps you don;'t care for?
  • Why you mad bro?
  • I am mad because he gives us crap instead of popular apps.
  • Yeah because nobody asked for Pandora or anything.. Just stfu
  • Well, thanks for Pandora. The job is done, no other important apps are missing.
  • Its real simple.. Change platforms if you are so unhappy.. Anger is just silly
  • I'm pretty sure Pandora, photosynth, and Skype are all popular just calm down
  • Wow homie, go drink some Metamucil & relax. No need to get on here like this.
  • Dude, are you kidding me???  I put this up before in another thread, but whatever;
    WP7, NoDo, Mango, Tango, WP8, Portico, talk of GDR1, GDR2, and Blue.
     
    All since late 2010.
    The OS is devloping just fine. Matter of fact it and the marketplace are developing at a fast pace than the other two did.  
  • I hope its an animal noise soundboard
  • Lmao nice one
  • Oh how we have waited! :-P
  • LMAO!
  • No no no, an Arnold Schwarzenegger sound board of course. :)
  • Lol
  • Hopefully something we can actually use here in the UK...
  • Same, really annoys me when MS make a big deal about things then say in the really tiny small print US Residents Only
  • Joe Belfiore - The Giver of Hope
  • Or maybe it's an official FACEBOOK app! :)
  • Unlike the current official Facebook (I'm aware its made by another company, but they were commissioned by MS & Facebook)
  • Yeah exactly..
  • I think it isn't instagram, I like maybe like Temple Run or something. But it would be cool if it was.
  • An official FB app?
  • its not going to be instagram as he wouldn't advertise a nokia exclusive
    it has to be viber as when pandora was released he added that there is something fun coming to non US users
  • Since when is instagram a Nokia exclusive?
  • Definitely not instagram. I'm thinking jetpack joyride. Its one of the few if only remaining apps that was announced for wp8 months back and in one of his tweets he said it would be "something fun"
  • That would be awesome! Another game I love playing on my tab 2, but would rather have it on my 920.
  • I want a Games Hub update: all-in-one with Extras and SmartGlass.
  • That will be an OS update OTA or Zune.
  • I highly doubt it will be instagram because, Nokia is still strongly promoting their anti-instagram app. Probably temple run or something else for that matter
  • It's a pro instagram app, not anti, lmao! It's supposed to show how much the WP community wants the app. Hence #2instawithlove....notice the love at the end.
  • Moron.
  • Maybe @walter1832 could be right, maybe an official fb app
  • -Facebook
    -Temple Run 2
    -Viber
    or something that we don't even care about :D
  • HBOGO or Hulu would be nice too.
  • I'm hoping for data sense. I'm not where the rumor mill stands on it but Counters was bad-ass and there's none for wp8
  • Yes, instagram please, so we can stop hearing about it.... What I would really dig is: hdhomerun tv directly streamed to phone and the cute little game dragonvale. That's how little I really miss on this platform....
    Have a neighbor. Who sadly just switched her Lumia 920 for a sgs3 and she says she loves the new phone, because it can do everything. Like: take screenshot with a finger swipe and she can customize everything. And she may be right. But I don't necessarily need to and I really don't like the GUI on my own work phone (android). So where Is WP?
    Almost every "needed" app is actually here. Lets get the few missing ones, and then the battle should be, which GUI seems most appealing. IMO, WP wins easily...but ifans and Droid fans don't agree....
    If I switched to Droid? I'd die without kids corner and rooms!!!
  • I don't know about other platforms but screenshots in WP8 are pretty easy: press "start" and power buttons at the same time and the image will be saved in the "Screenshots" album.
    It took me a while to remember that feature was available, and they don't really advertise it, but it's nice to have.
  • Didn't know that.  Thanks.
  • I believe you can have several accounts on Android now. Like kids corner.
  • Instagram in nxt to impossible...i would guess...temple run...probably the first one...but hopefully the 2nd...:)
  • I would like to see indigo voice assistance.
  • Indigo would be cool, but I don't think it would be the cause of Joe B teasing on Twitter.
  • Comixology
  • That would be cool.
  • I messaged them a couple of weeks ago and they said they had no WP8 plans despite there being a W8 app.
  • I love comixology but I don't know about comics on such a small screen.
  • What I want won't happen.
    MLB At Bat
    Hulu plus
    Roku Official App
  • Mlb tv is a must!
  • It wont be instagram. It would be too good to be true.
  • Yes
  • Maybe it is molome the instagram competitor?
  • probably will be something lame.
  • +1
  • +1
  • Viber????
  • Instagram, HBO, Viasat, Bank ID, IKEA, would work, all of em at one release. And more next day.
  • i 100% agree with you on the HBO App... that's one App i miss from my other OS.
  • It'll be Instagram. Who is holding the bets?
  • A new Facebook app for both wp8&windows8 would be good.
  • I've been dying to get a good facebook app so I can stop browsing on my computer so much cuz im uncertain if I got a notification or want to simply browse facebook properly (i.e. attach PICTURES to messages... MIND BLOWN). It's an addiction that I need to stop but I think having a proper toast notifcation is a step closer to make me a bit more sane :P haha
  • Err click image, share, Facebook what's hard about that? Or am I missing your point?
  • Do you honestly think that I am that stupid as to not have figured that out? I'm talking about having a conversation with someone and wanting to show them a video, or picture or anything. No attachments can be done there. Not even in the integrated facebook chat... sad life
  • Does Joe know the difference between a game and an app? Tomorrow we know.
    Flipboard and TapaTalk and Pulse i admit I Ilike Collector and Foreplex and Fuse as subs. Newser's OK too.  All 4  need need one more update bedore I can kiss the other OS offerings goodbye.
  • Games are apps.
  • I disagree
  • Noooooo Instagram.... lmao. We need a bloody decent tumblr, Yahoo Messenger and Facebook app that works ;-)
  • I hope it is Instagram to stop people from complaining and It will make WP look good. I personally don't min Instagram
  • My guess is a new re-done Facebook app, Temple Run, or Instagram.
  • I'd really love a better fb app
  • +1
  • Viber, jetpack joyride, or temple run (if its this please be #2).
  • I can tell you one thing IT WONT BE INSTAGRAM
  • +1
  • My vote is on lexi-comp....as well as instagram, flipboard and/or pulse
  • Instagram & Flipboard would be nice. Pandora was a great start, its so polished. They didn't rush it to get press, unlike the Facebook app.
  • WatchESPN!
  • +1000000 most highly anticipated app for me
  • Seriously. I'll take the march madness app too, please.
  • Someone needs to tell Joe we don't give a toss about twitter apps and are far more concerned about why our SD card don't fucking work properly. Fix it
  • If I was to bet, I'd say it was Viber. Getting Instagram would make my WP experience better only because we could stop hearing all of the sad, desperate crying in these forums as if the world has ceased Spinning because they can't share square cropped, over filtered pics of their pets and lunch on one more kinda-social network. Of course, I give it one day and the sky will fall because another case on iEnvy will take over. Alas, I don't think it will be the hipster-cam app. I'm still banking on Viber. I wish it was Mint or a video editing app or an official (or just upgraded) Facebook, but my hopes aren't high.
  • Yeah we need a good Facebook app, the twitter update is awesome!
  • tl;dr
  • dalydose...you always tell the truth!
     
    Agree; for the sake of not having to hear about it, hopefully it will be Instagram, but I doubt it.  I'm thinking it will be the other app promised by Joe at the launch of WP8 in addition to Pandora - which is Temple Run.
  • +1 on Mint > Instagram
  • Instagram to shut people up.
  • +1
  • No one said SnapChat yet? The app was tweeted to be coming around a month and a half ago. It is time!
  • I've never heard of this app before and I just searched it. I don't quite understand. We can send images natively via text. Is this so you can use WiFi rather than data to send an image?
  • You can set your image to expire after a few seconds. Mostly for nudie pics as far as I can tell.
  • Hoping for the best
  • I remember that the redone of the foursquare app is coming at"the end of march" so my guess is that
  • That would be the third redo. What's wrong with it now, did they say?
  • Never used instagram...
  • viber or snapchat
  • I'm hoping it'll be a really high quality fart app. I desperately need this.
  • This! lmao!
  • Probably something I've never heard of and won't ne available in Europe. Not feeling positive today. :-(
  • He said we Europeans should be exited, so we should get it.
  • Where did he say this? (looking a bit less grumpy)
  • https://twitter.com/joebelfiore/status/314718693823242240
  • Ah :-) Grumpiness = Gone. Well, almost. With Monday hovering over me.
  • Glad I could be giving good news. I'll be very mad if it isn't correct
  • Apps hare more important than games for the moment, proper Facebook apps and others
  • What if its actually 5 apps that he releases in one day
  • Wouldn't Nokia probably know if Instagram was coming soon? I kind of doubt they would release the @2instawhatever app if so.
  • I'd say a Facebook redesign or Dropbox are likely, the later being already on Windows 8. Wishing for Instagram though.
  • The platform needs instagram, like it or not. An official official fb app wouldn't hurt either. Yes I said official twice lol.
  • I hope its instagram. I don't use that social network, but a lot of people I know who do, won't even touch a WP because there is no instagram. This would be great for the platform.
  • WhatsApp 3.0 - Complete rewrite!
  • I would be happy with a functional Nokia Here with navigation that worked
  • I hope it isn't a game like a temple run, that would be lame.
     
    im hoping its a new Facebook app, or instagram. 
  • I say its probably Viber, they said we should expect their app "real soon" in March or April. Never used it or heard of it until recently nor would I use it but its popular so its good for Windows Phones.  The WP community might just explode if Joe announced Instagram tomorrow that would be something
  • Viber announced the voice update soon, so it's probably Viber
  • Does anybody think more than one app will be released tomorrow?
  • I want to have Adera on my phone, like it so much on win8
  • Fart/flashlight app combo?
    #windowsweekly
  • Spotify was just released. Could that be it?
     
  • We have had Spotify since ~ February 8.
  • It's either Instagram or something very US-centric so I'm not interested, but who knows, maybe I'll be genuinely surprised. :) And whatever it is, if it helps the platform gain more users, I'm as happy as the next guy :)
  • The timing is right for MLB At Bat. I would love to see some Amazon love... Cloud Player and Instant Video.
  • I would also like Comixology.
  • I'm going with Vine.
  • Vine would be a smart move.
  • Wouldn't MS have to give API access to the video library for Vine?
  • I'm gonna say it's Temple run, simply because it was on the screen along with Pandora amongst other apps. (I think that was at mwc or wpsummit, idk)
  • I hope its instagram but I'm sure it will be a game like say Temple Run
  • Instagram, please!!! And Flipboard wouldn't be bad, either.
  • If it is instagram, I will be so thankful for the fact that the complaining will finally stop.
  • It's gonna be a magic App which makes your phone mimic ios and Android depending on your retinal movements and mood but at the same time retains all the charm and functionality of WP, Plus it will have a double live tile which does nothing at all but flip :-P
  • HAHAHAHAHA!! THIS!!!!^^^^^^
  • Lmao!!
  • Twitch.tv please.
  • I wish...
  • I want an app that will beam me to a warmer climate.
  • If it's instagram, the rumour will come perhaps months earlier. Hoping for viber
  • Pogoplug app would be cool
  • Fun Run!
  • I'm hoping for SquareUp or LogMeIn. Instagram is nice for making photos look fanciful, but completely useless.
  • Jetpack Joyride!!!!!!!!!
  • Its just PANDORA I made a visit to my local Microsoft store yesterday and it was covered in PANDORA's logo . I even received a PANDORA t-shirt .
  • Pandora released last week
  • Someone didn't get the notice lol.
  • It'll be the an iPhone compatibility app opening up the Apple App store to windows Phone... Effectively killing Android.
  • Think of the possibilities, hell of an idea actually, apple will cry bloody murder.
  • Maybe it'll be notification. That would be sweet.
  • I think that comes as gdr2 at the earliest.
  • Haha it'll probably be bubble wrap or somethin
  • Really tired of hearing about Instagram when there are already great photo apps on Windows Phone. Let it be something useful - hoping for Hulu.
  • Ubisoft announced three games for January-March 2013 so I hope Rayman Jungle Run :)
    http://www.wp7connect.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/ubisoftgames.jpg
  • Rayman would be awesome!
  • Is instagram really that important??? There's plenty of picture apps in the market that are better
  • Yes, simply because of the network of people it has using it already, otherwise you're right.
  • I don't need any new apps. I just need Xbox Music to not suck.
  • Totally fucking agree!!
  • Absofuqinglootly! +10000
  • Amen!!
  • Perfect point!!
  • It won't be instagram, that's for sure.
  • Looks like Microsoft is pushing real hard to get these popular apps out in time for the Lumia 928 announcement.
  • I am going make a huge guess that will never happen because google is scared of WP and say YouTube and other Google apps... LOL! It's fun to have false hope right?
  • Just got a direct message from Belifiore. It's a new flashlight app! Officially made my Microsoft, it'll even flash an SOS signal!
  • Too bad, we have an app like that already.
  • Did you say it will flash an iOS signal?
  • Unfortunately threads, and announcements like this will only end up being more fuel for the vast majority of you to continue complaining about stuff.
    I'm willing to bet whatever it is, it'll be something A LOT of people use/want/have asked for.
    But that'll be lost on those of you who are stuck on shit like instagram. Those of you have convinced yourself that it's so important for the WP "ecosystem" (even though you probably don't know what that word means) but you fail to realize android grew to where it's at WITHOUT it. Unfortunately all big-name apps are good for the brand overall... actually no less so than instagram. So whatever it is, will most likely be "important", but you all will continue to cry that it's "not enough!"
  • +1 million
  • Truth
  • Most likely Viber.  No way it's instagram yet.  I'd love it to be Hulu Plus or HBOGo though.
  • How bout a pinterest? That will help out.
    If its instagram I will cry. :)
  • I really don't see the big deal with instagram. I mean am app that takes out pics and lets u filter it. Aren't there like a billion of those shit sitting in the app store
  • Any teen guy or girl will not get a WP device if instagram is not available.
  • You don't get it. Instagram is like a huge social network
  • It's a pseudo social network. People keep saying "it's the network", buy I keep seeing my friends cats in square crop in my Twitter and Facebook feeds. I think Pinterest actually has a bigger social network than Instagram.
  • I think some folks on WPC need to simmer down and not get so worked up over what others want
  • It'll be molomo.
  • If an Instagram app has been in the works, the time to release it is now, right before Nokia and Microsoft make the big Lumia 928 announcement.
  • SiriusXM app would be good news too!
  • I think it will be a scratch and sniff app for WP8. Truly taking the mobile world by storm!
  • Its not instagram, been confirmed.
  • When and where was it confirmed?
  • XM Sirius!
  • Instagram already damn
  • I bet it will be another wonderful "USA only" App... -_-
  • Please be Instagram so we can stop taking about it.
  • I'm sure this Joe guy did his research on "what will it take for android and iPhone users to switch over ......i hope its those need apps well see
  • Maybe the Youtube app Microsoft has ready but never had the permissions for? I don't think anyone has said it yet and it sounds likely.
  • Ha! There's no way WP is getting anything from google anytime soon.
    But at this point I honestly couldn't care less. Metrotube is better IMO.
  • ^^ I did a few comments up, and we can only dream right? lol
  • Well Google doesn't necessarily have to "do" anything on this one. Unless I misunderstood, MS already has the app ready to go they just don't have the permissions for APIs and such.
  • hopefully viber, its a useful app. Instagram is a pointless shite app
  • He spoke about offering something to people outside the US, so BBC iplayer... maybe?
  • Flipboard would be freakin sweet
  • Well clearly the majority wants Instagram and its not a usless app. Getting the major social networking apps onto windows phone can be the difference of somebody switching to a windows phone
  • Get a Wells Fargo app out already.
     
  • Hoping for grindr. For the love of goddess, let it be grindr
  • it better not be another app that only 3 countres can use. Pandora what a waste.
  • Instagram. Woo hoo... Blah
  • I doubt it will be anything Google but YouTube would be the best app to get. Flipboard, Song Pop, Xfinity would be some nice editions too
  • As long as its not restricted to U.S only,like Pandora I am happy.
  • Isn't it a licensing issue?
  • Yes, the region restrictions on Pandora are all Pandora's doing, not MS.
  • The more big name apps the better. Will attract the casual user who may be interested in WP but have held out due to lack of big name apps.
  • Wells fargo
  • I don't have any hope that it's instagram but I hope its either that or a updated Facebook app I could care less about games unless there using the new engines talked about awhile back.
  • Would love an updated FB app
  • My guess is that everyone here who is expecting a top app such as Instagram, Viber, or Temple Run is going to be disappointed tomorrow. Microsoft will likely release a no-name app that few people care about. I'm anticipating that Microsoft will surprise everyone tomorrow by being their usual disappointing self.
  • We need Apps for HBOGo and XFinity desperately, since IE won't run their flash based services. Can't believe MS hasn't leverages all their Corporate Account muscle to get these done ;(
  • Comcast sucks. They said that the tech is.too new. Fuck.comcast, I'm getting rid of the.
  • I could go for a Songza app. Listen to it at work all day and would love to take it on the road with me.
  • Wish list:
    Instagram
    Amazon Cloud Player
    Amazon Instant Video Player
    HBO Go
    Faceook
  • Instagram, please please please be Instagram. Or snapchat. We need those two very badly!
  • I hope its instagram so people shut up about instagram
  • I think it may be another update to the Twitter app. Again, I think lol :P
  • Whatever it is, I'm hoping us 7.x'ers don't get left out again.
  • I really hope it's instagram
  • Buddy of mine thinks its google+ I think we're barking up the wrong tree for G+ & instagram tomorrow but who knows I just want instagram on WP8 so I can convert a few more people
  • I'm thinking Duck Tales
  • Instagram so gay. Get viber voice to work is more better
  • I hope its an updated Facebook app
  • Give me Hulu, Temple Run, HBOGO, Modern Combat 4 and I'm good!!! Thank you
  • I want NBA app for shit sake
  • He just tweeted that it won't be released today. And it is NOT US-only.
  • Bad news Edmonds: 
    "joebelfiore ‏@joebelfiore 16m
    Bad news: next-fun-app-release delayed a few days. Still coming, just not today (monday). Sorry!"
    He just tweeted this, so no new app on Monday :( but at least it is coming this week. Still unsure what it is ,but it will not be a US exclusive app so chances are it will be something useful fto more than just a handful of users.
  • Well and it's delayed. He just announced it on Twitter.
    No App today. Pack your things, lets go home.
  • Maybe it's Halo for WP8
  • I want  :  On{x}
  • Its midnight!!!! What is it? I feel like it Christmas lol
  • yep delayed but sounds like maybe 2 apps this week now 
    "Good news: we *could* have another pretty good app week here, btw. Hard to know which publishers will hit which dates!"
     
  • it'll likely be viber, but am hoping it will be a much improved Facebook...
  • Wait. Its not coming. @joebelfiore

  • its' delay now. Joe tweeted that the fun app release got delayed and it is not coming today. But he also revealed us that another pretty good app is hitting the Windows Phone Store, also saying “This week is NOT a US-only kinda week. “, presumably a reference to those outside of USA who thought Pandaora was a useless release for them.
  • So a couple new apps/games by the end of the week then. Sweet.
  • Let it be something useful and available in more than just the US.
