WPCentral made a list of 8 things that Microsoft needs to fix in Windows Phone 8. I strongly agree with three things they mentioned, and don’t care so much about the rest. How would you fix Windows Phone?
One of the 8 things mentioned was a notification center. It doesn’t exist on Windows Phone 8. It’s found on Android, iOS, and even BlackBerry 10. It can be argued that the Live Tiles *is* the notification center, but as I mentioned previously, it’s not enough.
Another issue for Windows Phone 8 is Instagram. It’s also not available for the OS. A handful of my friends want to switch to Lumia, but not having Instagram is a deal breaker. According to WPCentral’s conversations with Best Buy and AT&T employees and even a waitress, they all said the same thing. There were many times when I left the Nokia Lumia 920 at home and carried an Android device instead because I wanted to share photos on Instagram.
The third thing I’d like on Windows Phone 8 is a way to close apps. I rarely need to do so, but I’d like to have that option whenever I’m in the multitasking view (press and hold the back button).
I think those are the three things that need to get fixed on Windows Phone. I’d love to hear your opinion.
