I agree. I would have loved to keep my Windows Phone as my main device, but the 3rd party apps can sometimes be lacking in quality and selection. Hopefully it's improved in the 6 months since I've used it.

they need a new redbox app..the one available is trash and not working. also they REALLY NEED the freebies like angry birds..etc...they got the phones, the ui and killer smoothness..now they need the free stuff...that and maybe allow a little more customization but not to the point of fragmentation,, and my friends with the new desktop windows 8, people will be all over these phones...maybe end of 2013..by forcast...b/c if they are liking the new desktop with tiles, they will naturally feel more comfortable with the mobile os...i am in early...my lumia is in the mail!!! yeah!!!!
