Study: Apps not that important to smartphone users | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

how shocking, another wpcentral article from eric! who would have guessed. regardless of what some article says, i have 48 downloaded apps on my phone. i use every single one of them on a weekly if not daily basis. im no expert, and im sure pew does some fine research, but i dont think this hokey article is going to change my mind on this one.

has anyone ever noticed how any time any one points out a shortcoming of wp7,8 or whatever, eric seems to have a wpcentral or tmonews article that says "oh, that thing you think is important, well its really not that important, because if it were, it would be in winpho" and any other points of view are "ANTI MICROSOFT PUNDITS".
in this case, since windows marketplace is last in apps, there is a wpcentral article saying apps really arent that important. but god damn, those live tiles sure are nifty.

It's not only WPCentral, do you ever even read the articles and follow their sources? I assume not since you made such a ridiculous response.

Angry Birds must be a utility then huh lol...

Pffft, I've got something like 90apps... Use half of them Atleast everyday....

Gmail...app
Yahoo...app
Sms/Handcent...app
Voicemail/youmail...app
Messenger/palringo/kik/whatsapp...app
Facebook...app
Ppcgeeks/taptalk...app
Xda...app
Opera/Dolphin/Firefox...app

Most common tasks a smartphone user does revolves around an app to get there.... You can't say "apps aren't everything" when even your article says "apps are everything) - even if its social media, music, etc.... It's still apps...

And hell, I've got 90 or so apps, Sie half of em daily.... The days I'm not using a lot, my kids certainly pick up the slack and play game after game... It's all I hear,, " dad, can I play a game on your phone..."

App development sells phones, handsdown! Just ask Google and Apple..

austin420 07-22-2012 09:21 PM

Little ones don't touch my phone no more. My 4 y/o has a nook tablet, and the 8 year old has my wife's old evo. Inactivated of course. We've got a family gmail with all the kids games on it. I love that you can sign in with multiple accounts in the playstore now.

@boredandtattooed All of those you mentioned are in WP,either by apps or built in,in the WP email app I could check all of my email accounts at once if I wanted to but have just decided to only link my hotmail accounts. Either way you just refuted my point, the apps that will get used everyday are social networking and utility type apps. Games are not counted as an app. Using more than that would put you outside of the majority that the article is talking about.

austin420 07-22-2012 11:38 PM

Games are not apps? Ok. I'm officially done here. I get the feeling that sense and reason will not prevail in this thread. I'm off to play some apps.

They aren't,with that reasoning songs and videos would be considered apps too. But good thing that you're leaving. Hopefully that'll be the end of you in this section. All you've done was spread hate. Good thing you also aren't on WPCentral.

Sorry for the off topic.. Geeze eric, you really are one annoying SOB(haven't changed a bit)!! I haven't been on the site/or posted anything for the past few months in large part just to get away from you & your bs!! I've only been back for 2 days and already can't stand you:cussing: Kinda feels like some screwed up time warp here where time is standing still because your still posting the exact same crap over & over & over almost like i never left! What's even more shocking is that they(the mods) still allow you to do so..I mean how can they all put up with you and your antics for so long??


I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm attacking you but come on man.. there were threads here showing the site was trying to better itself just a few months ago and having members like you who continually stir up (the same)shit, w/anyone and everyone, definitely isn't helping the cause!!

Why would I be on wpcentral? I don't own a wp device, so no reason to be there. I'm not a troll. I have a reason to be here. I do after all own several smart phones and this is a smartphone enthusiast forum.
What most of us are trying to figure out, is what you are doing here on a mostly android forum...

Keyword: mostly. Your still in the WP7 section so I believe that he is also a smartphone enthusiast and also has a reason to be here.

Ok you don't own a WP device so why are you posting here in this section? I rarely post in android and when I do it's not to talk shit, I also still post in the TP2 section.

Eric and Austin,

I would recommend ignoring each other... Just some friendly advice.

Everyone else... Lay off the personal attacks... They are against the site rules.

I wouldn't fire off any unsavory PMs to any mods either, I've heard that can get you banned :)

This thread actually needs to be closed as it originally was created to rant about a problem that has since been resolved. Now it's just a negative thread to bring down the platform like the very first threads in this section had done.

Actually you make a good point, but instead of closed it should probably be moved to phone comparison or something.

As an Android fan with that has owned a Moment, Epic, now Epic Touch, I'm quite impressed with the HTC Arrive I just bought for my wife. It's fast, simple, and does just about everything my GS2 does. The only drawbacks I see so far are the smaller screen and lack of Flash Video. The lacking flash video would keep it from being my primary phone as I use it to watch live sports,UFC events, and stream TV shows and movies from certain websites.

Great post, just would like to clarify a couple things here.
1) there is a flash video app for WP that you could try, it might help on some of the sites you frequent, it's pretty much a browser that tries to extract the .flv files from the sites and then play them in it's video player.
2) Adobe has discontinued flash for mobile so now even the newer android phones (GS3, one series) don't have it unless a custom rom is installed I guess.

austin420 08-03-2012 08:48 PM

Re: My next phone will not be Windows! I am going Android
 
why you guys (mods) are letting this go on in the wp section is beyond me. this thread either needs to be moved to phone comparison, as stated by other members, or closed. time could be better spent getting new membership and traffic up rather than deleting posts for no apparent reason.

1. I tried the flash app, couldn't get it to play anything. Can you play any video from free-tv-video-online.me or firstrowsports.eu?

2. I know it works great on my Galaxy S2, whether they have discontinued it or not, these sites are flash video only, any way to watch them on Windows Phone?

The OP was related to the users HTC Arrive phones which is why it's in this section. Nothing wrong with a discussion on whether his/her Arrive phone is worth keeping or getting an Android phone. Being used to the customization of Android, I prefer it, but I don't find the Metro UI "appauling," it's simple and to the point, my wife seems to Like it very well!

Overall look of the Windows Phone 7 series UI: ugly or beautiful? - xda-developers


unneeded post deletion is why a lot of people dont come here any more. if this were xda, eric would be banned. oh yea, he is banned over there. they recognize trolls.

Your post isn't deleted,it was mine that got edited which wasn't bad in any way I don't think. It's windows phone, not windowz phone. That's plain childish to refer to it as that. It's like saying windoze, etc. Everyone who has bought a WP outside of these forums loves the metro UI.

NinjaMom 08-03-2012 10:44 PM

Eric.... Austin..... Keep the petty arguing out of the forums. It is beyond ridiculous. Stay on topic and be constructive. All this back and forth with you two is old.
