I looked at the Windows Phone App Store to see if they have the apps I use most often on my iPhone 4S and whether they are as feature rich as the versions available on iOS. I noticed some troubling patterns. Often the apps I searched for were, in fact, there. However, the ratings and reviews were horrendous. User reviews stated that the apps no longer worked, were buggy, and lacked a great deal of functionality compared to the same app on other platforms like Android or iOS. Being a skeptic, I thought that perhaps these could just be false reviews/ratings made by competing developers. That is, until I looked at the apps' last release date. That explained it. These apps were all AT LEAST a year old with some listed as having been last updated in 2010! I compared the last release dates to the same apps in the iOS App Store and found that they had all been updated within the past MONTH. No wonder the Windows Phone versions were buggy, missing features, and had awful reviews/ratings. Developers had simply slapped together a Windows Phone port of their apps long ago (likely only because Microsoft at least partially subsidized the effort) and then completely abandoned the apps to whither away while their iOS & Android counterparts continued to enjoy frequent and impressive updates. I have to say that I find this incredibly disappointing since I was considering upgrading to the Lumia 920 from my iPhone 4S. Anyone else excited about the Lumia 920's hardware only to be unimpressed by the Windows Phone OS and/or its apps?
