    Yes, same here.

    Quite annoying actually.

    ... when is the ROTATION update going to be available? Was laying in my bed last night and ARGGHHH! The screen just won't keep still.

    It works fine apart from it being completely broken. :-D

    @rob

    I occasionally get that email problem, and it seems to be related to doing a two button reset on the phone which reverts the date / time setting back to the initial date. Does that apply to you?

    You can get Vine for WP now, if you're into that kind of thing.

    IFruit is now on WP.

    Would like Sega to bring the Football manager series to it.

    There's now an Instagram Beta on the store. Seems MS are really trying to fill in the big gaps recently.

    About time.

    Snapchat and Tinder and I will be set.

    What's the best twitter app for WP8? I tried the official client and it seems to only refresh about once a year.

    I just use the Me/People tile integration. It works for me, but then I don't use Twitter a great deal.

    All I need is tinder and the economist and I'm all set for apps...just as I'm thinking of moving.

    The Facebook app still needs lots of work and notifications.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

  • Deleted user 21 November 2013 18:17:48
    The Facebook beta isn't too bad. It's a lot faster than the default and seems to notify faster.

    What do you mean? I use the official one and it seems fine to me.
  • Deleted user 21 November 2013 18:31:46
    I meant that it didn't seem to do push notifications that quickly and the live tile never updated, although I've just reinstalled it and they're working at normal speed now.

    The one with the task manager and stuff? It's been out for a couple of weeks or so I think.

    Anyone use Nokia's HERE Drive app in rural areas? Taking a trip into the country, and plan to use my Lumia 920 as a sat nav. So:

    1) Can I download maps offline and continue to navigate where there's no data signal, and with no break in navigation for signal changes?

    And

    2) Is the phone's GPS chip trustworthy enough to use alone, ie. when there's no mobile data signal to triangulate with?

    I use HERE Drive and have never had any issues with it but not sure I've used it for rural areas.

    @-anon

    1) Yes, Here Drive - Settings - Map Options - Manage Maps - Add and choose your map

    2) I gave it a try on a trip to Reading in airplane mode and it got me to a conference hotel in the middle of nowhere fairly well.

    Lumia Black rollout begins.



    Quite impressed with Storyteller and the improved Beamer. Being on EE, I expect I'll have this update in about, ooh... six months.

    So in the market for a new Lumia. Not interested in an expensive, top-of-the-range-humungous-screen version, but I want it to have a good res screen, fast enough to play games and browse the web with lots of tabs with no issue (I'm looking at you, Rezzed ad) and not too heavy.

    How is the 925? What about the 'lesser' versions, any good?

    Got the 925. Very very happy with it. Fast enough to do anything you might need. Fantastic camera. Great screen.

    Looking at the app store just now, there's not much out there that you might need that doesn't have a Windows Phone version. It has Spotify so I'm happy. It has Minion Rush so the kids are happy. For 30 a month on Three with unlimited internet and a shed load of minutes, there's not much imo that can beat it.

    My biggest problem with the 925 is its slipperiness, I have dropped it many times and everyone who holds it drops or almost drops it. Think I need a case.

    @altitude2k I recently moved to a 925 from a 720. Though they look similar in design, you can tell the difference performance-wise immediately. I reckon if you can, get a 925 rather than any lower versions. Although you can get by with 512 Mb RAM lower end Lumia's, anything intense ie. games, won't run full pelt. I've found the 925 overall experience much more fluid and it would probably suit your needs better.

    Anyway, picked up the Black update last night, surpised how quickly this one came round compared to the Amber update. Finally got glance screen notifications and screen lock! Been waiting for these!

    I checked late last night for Black and it didn't find anything. I'll give it another shot today. What carrier are you on, Mageme?

    I'd love to use Glance, but I have a 920 so it's pretty much useless for me :(

    EDIT - Nope, nothing for me.
