I was discussing app options with a vendor today. You know, which platforms to develop for. Here's the money quote:
"WP is just too slow for us to adopt right this minute."
That's it. Too slow. Exactly. The vendor was thinking "market share". But I am thinking speed. Updates to the platform take months. And then you can hardly see any progress. Examples?
Windows Phone 8 does not even have an orientation lock. App developers are starting to add this features since it's missing from the operating system. Android and iOS have had this forever.
There is no data monitor. There is nothing in Windows Phone 8 that would tell you how much data you have transmitted this month. Yeah, Data Sense. "Data Sense is not currently available for all mobile operators."
And the list goes on and on and on. Nokia keeps cranking out updates to their apps almost weekly. And Microsoft? "Your software is up-to-date". My ass. How many developers do they have on this? Five? Three of them on maternal leave?
Musik + Videos: "Es ist so leer hier. Besuchen Sie den Store, um Podcasts hinzuzufügen."
Was ist so schwierig daran, ein Podcast-Verzeichnis anzubieten?
Anyway, ich suche einen kabelgestützten Faltkopfhörer mit Fernbedienung (Lautstärke, Start/Stop, prev/next) nebst Mikrofon für das Lumia 620. Der Sennheiser PX 200-II i vom iPhone geht nicht. :-/
I was very surprised by the missing orientation lock, I was going to make use of the nice screen by reading in bed, but no.
What apps there were when I tried WP8 were not as good as iOS. I kept touching the windows button if I used the phone one handed and that caused a bit of chaos.
I wonder if Microsoft got the product out the door, thought "we look a lot more modern than iOS, it'll take ages for Apple to catch up, we'll have a little rest".
Evidently many countries allow men to have parental leave so you might find your missing WP8 developers are as likely to be men.
threeBottomButtons.enabled = (deviceOrientation != LANDSCAPE);
would be a start.
Ich sehe das ähnlich. Nokia stellt wieder richtig gute telefone/smartphones her. Ich finde das lumia 520 schön und beim 720 die kamera gut. Aber die minuspunkte sind bei microsoft. Kein email, kalender, kontakte sync zwischen mac und WP. Kein onenote für mac. Veralteter kalender auf outlook.com. ...
