WhatsApp remvoved Windows Phone Store

18. May 2014 at 16:29


That WhatsApp for Windows Phone is the least supported version compared to Android and iOS is no secret. However, now WhatsApp was pulled from the Windows Phone Store and cannot be downloaded currently.

The WhatApp Team gave following statement regarding the issue:

Unfortunately due to technical issues, we have chosen to un-publish WhatsApp Messenger on the Windows Phone platform. We are working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issues and hope to return to the store shortly. We apologize to our users for the temporary inconvenience.

Let’s hope that WhatsApp will be very soon available again and moreover receive a proper update.

Have you wondered why you got more scratches on the Nokia Lumia 920 or Nokia Lumia 1520 than on the 1020? No? Well, Volker Weber did that and did some reserch.


Here you can see that the Lumia 1020, 1320 and Icon all use the Gorilla Glass 3 while all other use Gorilla Glass or Gorilla Glass 2.  I cannot tell you why. Do you have an idea? Anyway, a very good overview in my opinion.

Nokia App Reality: Nokia has the Apps!…really?

9. March 2014 at 10:27

“The new app reality. Nokia #Lumia has all the apps you need in the Windows Phone Store.” That is what the following video tells you. However, do you agree or not? I agree to a certain extend. Of course does the Windows Phone store offer the most must have apps. But how about apps that have a half-life period of several months or even weeks? For example the popular German game Quiz Duell? It became popular about two months ago and yet there is no WP version. Everyone in Germany is playing it. Everyone expect WP users. Same with Flappy Birds (I mean the original version)!  Slowly top apps are coming but that is the problem. They are coming SLOWLY!  Instagram took as long as the Facebook Messenger – over a year! Good for us user that those apps are coming eventually.  But the problem is that the apps or coming to slowly and that viral apps will never make it to the Windows Phone ecosystem.

WP 8.1 Screenshot

In April Microsoft will release the latest version of it’s Windows Phone Operating System – Windows Phone 8.1. Many false screenshots and videos have been pubilshed the last days and weeks. But now WPbar.cn  leaked the above screenshot and stated that it is real. What you can see is that you can set separate volume controls with WP 8.1 for ringtones, media and apps. This is a feature almost every user have been  clamoring for so long. For me, this and a proper notification center (like iOS) are the features I am most looking for.
