  • I never knew about Remote Desktop coming to WP! :D I guess I missed the article...
  • It is here you sure did.
  • Yeah. :P
  • When WhatsApp will updated?windows phone 8.1 is far far better than wp8 but still missing many apps and some features of available apps ,fill that app gape Microsoft
  • Already on Android and iOS, I own Android devices too, so Its Awesome, but really there is no exlusives on WP now hah
  • Yeh,but still android and ios has large numbers of games and apps,although now wp8.1 is very much better than wp8,
  • Anyone getting exception errors when clucking on a notification from WPC? Happens to me every time. And Simple Calendar will not open more than once unless the phone is rebooted.
  • I'm getting that error every single time
  • Time me tile needs an update I uninstall it because it showed the wrong time too many times.
  • I still waiting on Google+ but not holding my breath.
  • Blame GOOGLE for that and not Microsoft. They are the ones that are REFUSING to support Microsoft's Mobile products.
  • There's rumors around that G+ is about to be closed down.
    Btw, funny reading to see who owns Google...
  • G+ is a loss making service for google. And fp microsoft its somewhat internet explorer but microsoft has struggled and managed well to keep most of the world population on IE. As most of the applications of enterprises are IE compatible. Other browsers can just be used for surfing that's it.
  • Me too, and rumors are pointless, ofc it will stay
  • Is anyone not able to download time me? I can't its forever pending.
  • I can't wait till the day XBM is worthy of being a "app highlight of the day"........
    That's it.. Do not use the new XBM app!!!
    It's hogging data now!... According to Data Sense WP8.1XBM has wasted 17mb of my cellular data, and consumed 54mb of data while on WiFi... Why? IDK, because it's always constantly searching for music,, I guess... I have cloud music turned off..... Stupid######
    I'm not calling it the XBM app anymore. Sick of tarnishing the XB name... For now on this is the KinMusic app.. Lol... Thank god we can revert back to the somewhat feature stripped native app..
  • Well, people with Philips HUE lights could try this app. Its free and and from a Dutch developer:
    I did tip WPCentral but they never picked it up. 5 star ranking until now.
  • I'm unable to update XBMusic, whenever I head to the store it tells me the app is not available for my device (Lumia 820) and my current version is 2.5.1330.0. Any tips? (before asking stupid questions: my phone is turned on, I have an internet connection and I'm using WP 8.1)
  • Changed my region to US and it worked. Microsoft, fix this retarded crap so everybody else can enjoy the updates. I can't believe they do these things. If you have an app installed, you should be able to update it regardless the region you're using on your phone. Big companies tend to miss these simple common things and it's annoying. edit: The devs behind Xbox Music should be fired, the app sucks so much compared to the one on 8.0.
  • "Before asking stupid questions"""
    LMFAO... Kinda rude way to ask for help DYT... Lol!!
  • ;-)
  • @ Daniel R......
    I think this reviewer likes you.. He has you pinned to his start screen... Lol!!!.... Video.
  • The guy in the video has no idea what the word flow keyboard does!
  • I want that background
  • Find it here: :D just to fasten things up
  • Asphalt 8 update!
  • Microsoft has made video player worst... Not at all opening... Getting crash everytime......
  • I guess u can report them via diagnosis app.
  • Sam, Give me that background wallpaper
  • Find it here: just to fasten things up :)
  • Thanks a lot :)
  • Np :)
  • Calendar Calleague was updated this past week, now with full edit capabilities thanks to WP 8.1, but even if you don't have 8.1, Calendar Calleague also added support for authenticating to Microsoft, Google, and Facebook for editing/deleting of appointments.  On the in-app purchase front, it also added Cortana support w/ voice commands and a new "auto-navigate to your next meeting from the live tile" feature. With the new WP 8.1 Calendar app out, some may wonder if the days are numbered for 3rd party calendar apps, but no other calendar app can dial you in to a conference call, and lets not forget live tile and lock screen limitations for the built-in calendar app.
  • I'm pretty sure that the OneDrive app version is 4.1
  • I love the background image in the picture of this article, can somone send me a link of it, or maybe where i can find more.
