Apps Missing From Windows Phone 8

Windows Phone 8 and the upcoming 8.1 update really fix a lot of usability issues previous versions of the phone had, but there’s still an area a new OS can’t fix – 3rd party apps.

Within the last few months I have been able to find good official apps for many apps I use on Android, but here’s a list of the ones I’m still waiting for an official app of. If these apps could be made for Windows Phone, there’s no reason I couldn’t switch full-time to my Windows Phone.

  • Amazon Music
  • Goodreads
  • Sonos
  • Starbucks
  • MediaMonkey (or any decent media player that handles genres, metadata, and syncing with ease)
  • Tasker / Llama (any automation app – which probably will never happen with the current limited access to the WP system)
  • Vudu Movies (for when Flixster isn’t working)
  • Any good app.
  • An equivalent to aCar for Windows Phone. This app is amazing for keeping tabs of car maintenance.
