Are windows phone 8.1 apps better or the new W10M apps?

Q: Are windows phone 8.1 apps better or the new W10M apps?

Have the apps being developed for W10M improved in quality or features compared with the old 8.1 apps? Or have they become worse?
I remember reading that Uber in W10M is worse compared with WP8.1 but the instagram app in W10M is better
What are your thoughts? Please state which app or apps you're basing your conclusions on
Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect
my apps to the internet but I can't one.

I haven't really come across any in the near one year since I got my Windows Phone. The one issue I have always had with the Windows Phone as opposed to the iPhone is how poor the Windows Store is compared to the App Store.

I have a lumia 930 which does not have an sd slot. It worked fine with windows 8 and 8.1 the problem is with windows 10. All apps that come with device so they cant be uninstalled and store, crash. I have done a hard reset this works for a little while then the same problem. The crash is in two types one I try and open the app has loading then goes back to homepage or I will be browsing an app and the link or image I am looking at closes back to the home page. I have 15.9GB used out of 29.1GB so I have plenty of memory. I have the latest update.
The fixes for laptops obviously dont work what else can I try?

Hi . i have a windows 8 laptop and was woundering why i cant use a app like Pandora for my laptop . its in your windows phone app sotre but not for the laptop store?? . i don't understand why. both are the same . or is it the app itself only going for windows phone?? . plzz help i would love to get all access to all apps on windows phone for my laptop. ty

A:Why cant i have windows phone apps on laptop app store

This is intentional for a few reasons.

One, it's not nice to have an app on your Windows Phone simply blown up to a larger screen. The app has to be redeveloped for screen estate and size considerations.

Second is the fact that Windows Phone doesn't have the system contracts bar, or Charms bar, so that can't simply work that way.

Third is that the code itself is different, Windows 8 uses WinRT code, Windows Phone I believe uses the WinPRT coding structure, Xbox One I think uses WinXRT code. These are similar, but different.

The Pandora app probably won't come to Windows 8 anytime soon because... It's called a web browser. This is the thing about Windows 8 is that most developers probably aren't and shouldn't develop app versions of websites. It makes no sense to have a PC that uses typical Desktop web browsers, that have no settings of changing the site from being mobile or Desktop rendered, to have an app for ebay, or Amazon, or Pandora, or Facebook.

Also, who are you directing this at? We're not Microsoft.

I have bought a new Windows Phone after my previous phone died and want to restore data within Apps on the new Phone. After restoring the phone using Microsoft Account Backup, I have all of my settings and Apps sync'd on the new phone, but any data from inside the App is missing (Ex: Different notes in the Notepad App, Game level in some Gaming app). It looks like all the Apps are installed as fresh applications and don't have any of the old data.
Can someone point to a way to restore the data from within the applications from my previous phone to the new one.

Two questions, which admittedly are based in ignorance. (1) why can't MSFT put Intel x86 type chips into a smart phone (or other companies) to make them work like desktop? And alternatively (2) why can't MSFT create some open-sourced virtualization app for all the original desktop apps.

A:Why doesn't MS address desktop apps on Windows Phone?

MS is done with phones. Haven't you read? Microsoft is cremating (dead) Lumias. Some are waiting for the Surface phone which probably will never come. People been talking about it for a year or two at least and there's still no official word about it. And what for you need PC apps on the phone. Buy a tablet with Intel chip

Is metro apps built on the same technology as the windows phone apps? I heard Metro apps are built with html or something and is not the same technology as the windows phone apps but just wanted to make sure. If it's not that also seems like a bad idea as transitioning a windows phone app to a metro app might be annoying as they could be completely different platforms to develop for.

I was given a Windows 8.1 tablet that once had a detachable keyboard which the guy lost. he reset the whole computer and after I got my information on it instead. After the reset, Windows was no longer activated and I had to reactivate it. which neither of us knows why, it was activated before we did a data factory reset. after I created my user, I installed a bunch of exes. now I go to try to see if I could test out the Windows Store to search for apps. but I search "Windows Store" or "app store" and several other things that may bring it up, but it always says, "no apps match your search" like if the Windows store is missing or somehow magically removed with the reset process. How do I get it back?

A:Updated my OS to 10.0.14955.1000 on windows phone since thennot able to open apps

you have updated to windows insider fast ring which could break many apps and functionalities of your device. It is recommended to perform a hard reset and starting afresh without restoring the backup once on insider fast ring. this should fix your issue, if not then either roll back to public build using windows device recovery tool or wait for future builds.
also if you are incapable to performing a a hard reset now, simply reinstall those apps which are not working.

then I run the command line to enter oobe mode generalize. Everything is ok, I continue my install. Then I create new user local account. And when windows starts, I have my custom desktop but default apps are removed (Microsoft Edge replace Chrome, Pdf files are read with Edge, etc.)

I never tried sysprepping 10 but i have faced similar issues with 8.1. Turned out that you need to save the default app associations to an XML file using DISM (before Generalizing the image ) and later import it.

Export or Import Default Application Associations

Configure, export, import App File Associations in Windows 8.1

I have used "Setupcomplete.cmd" to auto import the app associations during the last face of install.

Add a Custom Script to Windows Setup
You may also need to disable the new app notification before generalizing the image.

Hey everyone, I updated my phone (Lumia 640 LTE) to windows 10 yesterday with the help of the upgrade advisor. It took awhile but it finally updated and I noticed that every single app I had was pending. Some of them were accessible again yesterday but two things happened
1) I dropped my phone and the battery came out, promptly turned it back on
2) Wi-Fi crashed in the night
In the morning I noticed they were still pending and thought it was the Wi-Fi, but I came back from school and they still haven't updated even though the Wi-Fi was on. However my phone was not charging during this period. I need help because even the phone app isn't functioning.

I am using Windows 8 Release Preview on my desktop. At present the Windows marketplace has a very limited quantity of apps. I also saw the Windows phone marketplace and it has a lot of apps. I read in the news that it has more than 100000 apps presently. I think it a possibility that when the final version of Windows 8 releases we could also have the opportunity of using Windows Phone apps from the Windows marketplace. Since they too are metro so there is some possibility. What you think about that? Is that a possibility?

A:Would Windows 8 (final) support Windows Phone apps?

I hope so but I heard that the phone apps and the metro apps are in different coding language so that might not work out. Someone else might know better. I really wish that windows phone apps will work on windows 8 though for metro since that would mean a much easier transition if their marketplace is already growing.

What apps, is it all of them or just a few.
Have you updated the apps, go to the store, click on the burger menu and choose "Downloads and Updates" and try check for updates.
Also give it a bit of time after an update and I would also restart the phone after doing these procedures, but if you want more help, do give us a bit more to work with.

So I have found myself more addicted to my laptop since I installed win on it Everything I read in the past about win being more for touch screens I was like well I'm not going to upgrade my pc then but now that I have it i'm actually really liking it I like the whole metro side of win I mean it really metro phone? win 8 apps on Same has me thinking If I can have the same on all my devices I just may dump my Iphone and ipad I'm assuming the apps on the desktop will be the same for the win phone right If that is the case see you Same metro apps on win 8 phone? later apple I never cared for you much any way I have to be honest I don't like switching back to the desktop I'm sure the desktop will be gone by win Same metro apps on win 8 phone? or once win eight takes off and third party software goes to the metro Same metro apps on win 8 phone? side One last thing I like to note is if Microsoft promotes win for the phone tablet and pc all together instead of saying win eight is for touch screens they blow this thru the roof

A:Same metro apps on win 8 phone?

Very much a big YES! The new and also disappointing to some feature of Windows Phone 8 is that it has a shared core with Windows, probably obviously WinRT code.

What that enables is an awesome plethora of options, games, and apps. Unlike ios, where the OS doesn't take full advantage of the device, the new WinRT apps will. An app built for Windows 8 will have a ridiculously easy port over to Windows Phone 8. WP 8 doesn't have a Charms bar, but it will have UI elements to interact with settings and such. That's what I really like about the new metro ecosystem Microsoft is building. It offers a very consistent user experience, but takes advantage of the devices capabilities. An app on Windows Phone 8 takes advantage of the screen size how the user interacts with, meaning the little ... icon for more and swiping left and right to navigate through the apps. That same app can be on Windows 8, but takes advantage of the Charms bar for search, sharing, and settings. Since a tablet PC has more screen estate, more can be shown. And to navigate through the content, it's a simple scroll.

Basically, get rid of the iphone and ipad!

I find it OK to switch between Desktop and Start Screen. It kind of makes me think of the jump list in Windows Phone, where shows a whole screen of little tiles with a letter on it to jump to that section of file names.

You know, I think that could be potentially a good marketing strategy for Windows Phone 8. Power of the PC in your hands? I don't know, some might think that wouldn't be good because of the Windows name, but that's blasphemy. If they can promote the ecosystem of the metro design, where a Windows Phone 8 goes hand in hand with a Windows 8 tablet PC and even go hand in hand the current updated Xbox and the new one next year, that could be a HUGE hit as well.

Greetings all. I just have a curiosity about something to do with digital phone applications. I am usually gaming in the evenings and also have digital phone service. Since I am wearing a headset with a mic already, is there an application that you can run on your system in the background that allows you to answer your digital phone through your computer? For example, if I'm playing and the phone rings, instead of getting up and going in the other rooms to get the phone, I could just hit a hot key that allows me to answer the phone without having to leave the game? I figured since the cable and phone were coming through the same modem, it could be intercepted by an app and allowed to be answered on the PC. Any thoughts would be cool. Thanks.

I'm told that apps available for the iPad do not all necessarily play on a MacBook. Not sure if this is true. What is the situation with Win 8 devices? Do all apps meant to play on a Win 8 phone or on a Win 8 tablet (including the Surface RT) also play on a regular PC fitted with Win 8? I can imagine that some programs meant to be played on a PC fitted with Win 8 won't play on a Win 8 phone. But do all apps meant to play on a Win 8 phone -- except phone-specific apps -- play on a Win 8 PC as well? I'm thinking of all game apps, but also of phone & tablet utilities that might be handy on a PC. Does the Win 8 exercise aim to fully integrate and standardise the use of Windows over diverse devices? Or do I have this wrong?

A:Do Win 8 Phone and Surface RT Apps all play on Win 8 PC?

Most apps in the Windows store will work identically on a tablet and pc (even RT). There are some apps known as "hybrid" apps that are really Win32 apps that have a Metro veneer. Chrome and IE are like this. Those kinds of apps won't work on RT (well, obviously IE does, but I mean apps that are like that).

Windows 8 Phone apps are currently not compatible, but Microsoft will have a new version out soon that will bridge the compatibility. Unlike previous versions of Windows Phone, Windows Phone 8 is based on the same RT OS as the tablets, but has limitations based on the reduced capabilities of the phone that Microsoft is currently working around.

Ok, so literally nothing was working - I did a "Repair Install" using my windows 7 cd. It took 2 hours, but when it finished up all of my networking was working So, for those of you who are having similar issues, as a last resort I'd give that a shot. Definitely read a few articles about what is required to successfully perform a Repair Install, as you don't want anything going wrong during that process.

I tried giving Windows Mobile a fair chance but it felt sluggish and I didn't like the interface so I decided to revert back to Windows Phone on my Lumia with Windows Device Recovery Tool Although I backed up everything I was missing about apps games which I guess wasn't too surprising What I find odd though is that my phone longer previously-installed compatible no Phone reset. is after with apps will no longer recognize the apps that are installed on my SD card It knows something is there but they are listed under quot Other quot in Phone is no longer compatible with previously-installed apps after reset. Storage Sense When I try to set my phone to install new downloads to the SD card it tells me that I have to first let it remove all installed apps because they belong to a different phone even though the phone hasn't changed If I try manually re-downloading my missing apps through the web site because they don't show up in the phone's store I am unable to do so because my phone is apparently no longer compatible with them even though they are supposed to work with Windows Phone according to the System Requirements An example of one such app http www windowsphone com s appid b a ec - - ea -a - ca f c At this point I don't really know what to try I don't want to completely lose access to all of these apps games that I use especially the ones I have paid for For what it's worth my OS version number is I can't update beyond that without going back to Windows Mobile If you have any suggestions I'd really appreciate it I tried asking this on the official Microsoft support forum but all they said is that it's normal to have to reinstall apps after resetting which doesn't address my issue in any way

A:Phone is no longer compatible with previously-installed apps after reset.

Various issues.... some apps may have been updated to a newer version that isn't available on the older version of windows. Another being that maybe the app didn't correctly update the info in the store, improperly showing that 8.1 is still compatible. Also, apps can be set per device/carrier/region.
All I can suggest is copying what you want from the card (pics, music, etc), then formatting it . You should be able to set the SD card for app installs again. As for the apps that will not allow you to install again at may be out of luck there.

but when i try to install new apps from app store
w8.1 asks me to switch to a microsoft account

can i install apps with a local account?
and how can i understand if i have a local account or microsoft account


A:can i install apps from apps store with a local account?

See the screenshot below for selection you have to make for not to convert your local account to a Microsoft Account:

Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

Screenshot from tutorial Skype App - Use with Local Account in Windows 8.

You of course need an email address (Microsoft Account) but it will only be used for the app in question (Windows Store is also just an app), so in the next dialog either give an existing Microsoft Account credentials or select Sign up for a Microsoft account to create a new one to be used with Store app:

Your Windows sign in account will remain local, it will not be converted to a Microsoft Account.

OK i'd Sync, Admin etc??? Be Able As d/l Metro AND To apps, Store Apps Use like to make it clear that i'm using the so-called quot real quot Administrator account that is hidden but can be activated not a regular account with admin privelidges At first i was trying to figure out if Metro apps can be used by this account and it appeared that they cant but managed to find a Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc??? trick to enable it i did it by making sure UAC is on making sure that FilterAdministratorToken is set to a Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc??? value of in the Registry and by enabling quot User Account Control Admin approval mode for the built-in Administrator account quot secpol msc Local Security Policy gt Local Policies gt Security Options So i did a bit more research and toying around only to discover that although i might have found a workaround for running most Metro apps in general i discovered that syncing d l'ing of apps from the Windows Store etc is not possible unless you're using a Microsoft account Please note that any other account with admin privelidges can use the apps without a hitch as well as any Standard account So it clearly is not a limitation of just having an admin account alone Also the built-in Admin is the only kind of account that cant be converted from a local account to a MS Account all other accounts with admin privelidges can do so If you look in the Control Panel and try to make changes to the account you will find that the option isnt available whereas with other accounts it is This brings about the issue of not being able to sync or d l Store apps also note that there is a difference between logging into Windows with a MS Account and simply accessing the apps while using a local account and then manually inputting your MS Account username password when requested By signing in with a MS Account no Metro app will ever prompt you to login after youve done so initially the first time since it remembers your details unless you've reset your password or account security has been compromised etc Judging from what i've read my workaround enables most Metro apps to function except syncing d l'ing of Store apps and perhaps a few other small things issues and so therefore this is not a true solution since other accounts have none of these issues Since the option to convert the real Admin account to a MS Account is not available yet is available to other accounts with admin access as well as Standard accounts then i supposedly cannot use these functions to the fullest extent I am the type of person who prefers to use Windows Linux while logged in as root Admin rather than a limited user all day every day because i trust myself and my abilities am very careful meticulously maintain my systems with the utmost care and caution i do understand that using Admin is considered to be a security risk but it's a risk i'm willing to take and i dont mind learning from my mistakes in the event that bad things happen i do not care to be told by Microsoft how to run my system what i can do on them etc Complete and absolute control is what i demand at least to the greatest extent possible considering that Windows is proprietary and closed-source yet i depend on it for many things like running a business gaming etc I didnt post this to rant or spout my opinions but to solicit feedback on how this issue s can be overcome or worked around without having to use a nd account to get the full features of Metro apps I'm also wondering if there is possibly a way official unofficial or otherwise of being able to run a Metro app as another user account whether local or MS Account doesnt really matter i think while still remaining on the Metro screen of the real Admin account without having to manually log into my nd account and access Metro from there By perhaps using a quot Run As quot command link shortcut or similar Maybe that sounded a bit long-winded and confu...

A:Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc???

Hello Stephen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Setting that security policy below to be enabled will basically just turn the built-in elevated "Administrator" account into an unelevated administator account that requires UAC approval to open or run anything that requires elevated rights to do so.

This would be why you are able to open the Store afterwards, but you would still need to sign into the Store with any Microsoft account to be able to install any "Metro" Store apps.
Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

You still will not be able to switch the built-in "Administrator" to be a Microsoft account. It can only remain as a local account.

Now, my problem is that my Windows 8 apps wont update and i cant install new apps. ive had this problem before, but i forgot how to solve it. I remember it had something to do with a folder not being in the C:/windows folder. I also remember it began with a "A" (Appinstaller?).

i was wondering if anyone who CAN install their apps and update them could look into their C:/Windows folder and write down a list of folders that appear starting with the letter "A".

Thanks in advanced!

First time around, i uninstalled all of it using power shell but i ended up needing the store and one other app but W10 went retarded and didn't allow me to reinstall the packages, so this time around. I just want to organize them into a folder that i will never touch

I really hope someone can help me do this, i don't feel like downgrading back to 8.1 which as it stands right now was better for me when using Start8.

Hi! Welcome to SevenForums!

Have you tried locking the taskbar? Try it.

If that doesn't work, right click the taskbar and click properties. [See Screenshot Called Properties]

Then under Notification Area click Customize. [See Screenshot called Customize]

Then tick the box at the bottom and click apply. [See Screenshot called Notification Area.]

Try that and report back!

Hello all,

I am new here, although I did come here quite a few times and many times found the solution :-)

My problem is (I am on 1511) that some icons of removed (by powershell) apps reapeared, and there seem to be no way to get rid of them. Nothing I have found had worked (like going to start menu folder and deleting the shorcuts).

Namely it's MicrosoftWindowsAlarms, MicrosoftZuneMusic, MicrosoftWindowsPhotos, and in Apps the name looks like this: @{Microsoft.WindowsAlarms_10.1607.1991.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwems-resource--Microsoft.WindowsAlarms-Resources-AppName-Text}

Moreover, few days ago some "new" apps have materialized - that was a update, nothing, out of blue I had about 10 unwanted apps in my all apps...............crazy.

Any thoughts?

P.S. Normally I deffer updates by turning the service off and/or metered connection. Now I have left it on by mistake...........still should not install against my will some unwanted apps..........and as I said, no update.....

A:Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps

Those left-over icons may be a result of deleting programs instead of using Control Panel, Programs and Features to uninstall the programs. When a program is installed the install routine puts the program files in either C:\Program Files [32-bit] or C:\Program Files for 64-bit or C:\Program Files (x86) for 32-bit depending upon which version of the OS is in use. It will also create the icons, write support files to C:\Windows or other Folders and create Registry entries so Windows knows how to run the program. The uninstall routine is supposed to get rid of everything associated, don't know if PowerShell can do it as cleanly.

I am experiencing the following very strange intermittent problems and evil behavior in XP.

My Start Menu sometimes only appears for a split second when clicked and will not stay displayed. Also minimised apps. wont maximise and apps. and short cuts on the desktop wont launch when double left clicked and instead show properties as if they were right clicked!!

I have done the following to try and resolve these issues.

1. Updated from SP1 to SP 2 as well as all the security updates.

2. Ran Adaware and Spybot to find any unwelcome visitors. Adaware only found one minor issue.

3. Ran Symantec Antivirus which found and quarantined several viruses.

4. Ran WinDoctor which found and said it resolved quite a few issues.

This is really a pain as it makes the system virtually unusable except for when it is behaving which is rare.

Would be grateful for any suggestions, solutions, incantations or workarounds for this issue/s

Kind regards

I save almost everything into Dropbox. When I try and attach an file to an email through the Chrome app (non-desktop version), the Dropbox app (not the programme on running on my desktop) will not allow me to select the files to add. I think this is because the Dropbox app is essentially the same as the website and I would have to download the item first. This wouldn't be a huge problem if I was able to get at the document some other way but I get stuck!

I can attach the document if I switch back to the Chrome desktop app, but I am not sure how I managed to make this change the first time!

I don't know what is the reason for removing all apps control in the Notifications menu.

I had this problem so many times and the only fix for this that I know - is to create a new microsoft account or to do clean install (which I don't like to try those suggestions anymore).

Any other solution mates?

A:"Show notifications from these apps" error, no apps listed

Hello, minomk. Welcome to Windows EightForums.

Not sure why you have to create a new microsoft account or to do clean install. Apps can notify a user when new content arrives. Not quite sure what your problem is. Do you want to shut notifications off for all your apps? Perhaps particular apps?

Push "Show notifications from these apps" to pick on/off individually.

I hope that helps you.

Random apps are not showing up in the "All Apps" section of the Start Menu after installing a clean version of Windows 10 (not an upgrade), and re-installing all my favorite software, In other words, finding a launcher to countless programs now means visiting "C:/Program Files/WhateverRandomSoftware/launcher.exe." Well, that;'s no fun.

Is there any better way to do this. Anyone know of a fix or have others experienced this problem?


A:"All Apps" Doesn't Show All Apps Installed

Hello flowingfire, and welcome to Ten Forums.

If you like, you could manually add and remove items from your All apps to help.

Hi I like to make a thread here for people to discuss Apps To be honest i am not really a big fan of them as Apps make - of do What whole? Apps a you but i do think they have their place on a mobile phone or tablet and not on a powerful computer The reason i am not a big fan of Apps is because they are really just cut down versions of programs you have on a computer On a computer Why would you use an App instead of using the Apps - What do you make of Apps as a whole? full programe or the website you can go to I know that Apps are designed to make life easier but i have felt recently as Apps seem to be everywhere these days and are not going away That they seem to have made people very lazy in computing Some people cant even be bothered to switch on their pc and this is not a good thing Woman are a very good example here as Apps - What do you make of Apps as a whole? they love their phones and are always using the App version of a programe instead of using a computer and it kinda gets me cross if like me a computer user is using the same programe as they are and they cant access all the features you can It is really very frustrating What do you people think Do i have a point I like Win and some of the apps are useful but i always seem to goto my desktop and never the Metro to do my computing and to be honest felt the apps are best suited to a tablet as they are are a touch screen Andy

A:Apps - What do you make of Apps as a whole?

fine on a phone or tablet. No point on a desktop or laptop. Too simplistic and feature lacking.

A:Remove/Hide Apps in "All Apps"

Oh damn! ... I think I have found it, by accident

Start -> All Apps -> Folder:AMD Catalyst Control Center -> Right Click on App:AMD Catalyst Control Center -> More -> Open Folder (Can't translate it correctly to English as it is German Language OS) -> VOILA!

X:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Seems like I can move and remove Stuff to get everything sorted out as i need it!


Edit: Maybe not that easy *sigh* removed several things, but the folder/link still exists, but doesn't work anymore and there are not all Apps to find.. like xbox and other System bloated stuff.

I have a nearly fresh install of Win7 32 bit on a pretty modern machine. It has been intermittently laggy since I installed Win7 about three weeks ago.

Here is a list of symptoms:
1) Apps are slow to open
2) Double clicks aren't registered until 5-10 seconds later
3) Typing is slow on most apps, but only intermittently
4) Most Net browsing is very slow - not slow to load, but slow to react and slow to open new tabs & windows

System specs: quad core Pentium, NForce 750 mobo, Nvidia G9500GT card with 1GB, 4GB 800mhz RAM, cable internet and Buffalo router.

Any thoughts on where to start?

I don't think it's a system issue. Also, the Win7 install is super fresh. Further, it's the second install on the same machine (I thought I could fix the same issue with a fresh install). My experience index is 4.6 limited by the graphics card.

A:Slow to open apps, all Net apps slow, slow to type... laggy everything

OK so I isolated the following:

- Antivirus: I am running Panda Cloud, which is the same AV as on the PC upstairs
- RAM: checks out fine, 4 GB, same amount runs fine on the PC upstairs
- Vidcard: system performance seems OK if I do not switch between programs. That is, if I stay in one program for a while, the systems runs at an acceptable speed.
- Web browser: system lag is identical in Chrome, IE, and Firefox.

Maybe I am ignorant or have missed the debate but I cannot understand why so many apps exist doing more or less the same. For instance we now have Skype and Skype preview and Skype for business. Why not just one Skype app where one can login with all user accounts like One drive where I can link all my accounts in one app.
Then we have Power Point, Flow and Sway. Again more or less the same app but one slightly different from the other.
In Office 365 an app has been added, Projects, yet also now evident in Microsoft Teams. Yammer and MTeams and so I can carry on.
Maybe I don't understand how all of this fits into each other but with one app incorporating all similar functions our life can just get easier.
Your views would be appreciated

A:Why so many Windows apps doing more or less the same

That's on Microsoft. As for the Skypes, the Skype Preview is the important one.
Also different teams are working on these different things, so we don't really get a say there.

i thought i should ask are there any good apps using windows 8 i enjoy the xbox so i have the majority of the free games and smartglass but i was wondering if there was any good apps for drawing or anything else. Are the free apps better than the paid ones as i know from apple products some free apps can do the majority of the tasks that a paid one does for free for example document is alot like pages

so far i find that manga 7 is the best app for reading anything to do with manga with its wide range the only down fall is i need a mouse as with a laptop scroller i can lose a few pages, i also find the apps that are on the xbox the most fun as jetpack joyride and adera (a mystery game is the best)

Hello, i seem to have a problem with the apps, every time i try to connect to weather, facebook, maps, it worked.

I think the best way for you to get your favorite apps into the Windows Store is for you to send them email. If enough people show interest, they'll have to think about it.

You'd be surprised how responsive a lot of developers are. A couple of apps in the Windows Store, I sent feedback to the developers and they actually responded and made improvements! Some really nice people out there.
