Pretty apps on Nokia Lumia 800

by Volker Weber

There are exactly two apps I am missing on the Lumia 800: Sonos and Google+. There is a very limited controller called Phonos, but Google+ I have to use on the sucky basic mobile interface.

Other than those two complaints, I have it all. And they are pretty.

Is there a 'like' button here on vowe.net?

Not that I know of.

We get to watch an interesting duality play out here:

Will Apple be able to stay in the lead of simple, beautiful, functional design without Steve Jobs?

Will Microsoft be able grow Windows Phone and still keep it simple, beautiful, and functional, given that the Windows OS and Office folks have now noticed?

One or both of these will not happen.

Does Whatsapp work reliably on Windows Phone?

Proper Bluetooth support (=SPP or RFCOMM to another device) would be the next important "app" for me and it doesn't seem to be there in Mango :/

WhatsApp works as reliable as on any other platform. Read: not very. If you need proper group chat, you use Kik. If you want an unreliable platform every and their dog uses, then WhatsApp is for you.

What is your use case for SPP and RFCOMM?

1) Receiving telemetry data from a hobby project
2) Professionally to connect to a training device that communicates via bluetooth

It's the simplest possibility to connect two devices, yet Apple has managed to cripple it (no hobbiest will get into the Made for Ipod program and include a rather expensive authentication chip in the hardware) and Microsoft isn't releasing a SDK for this functionality on its phones. Even Google waited until Android 2.0 for this ... despite the fact that EVERY damn phone before these "smartphones" was perfectly capable of using bluetooth this way :/

The phones were. But people were not. Exceptions apply.
