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
- 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 boardgamegeek.com app.
- An equivalent to aCar for Windows Phone. This app is amazing for keeping tabs of car maintenance.
