Things I miss on my WP8

I recently moved to WP8. I have used WP7 in the past and I certainly like what Microsoft did with WP8. With that said I just wish the following things just worked on my new phone.

  • Powerful  email client. I love the email experience on Android, I love it more than on my iPhone. The windows email client gets the job done, but I think it's very basic. 
  • Messaging app - WP8 doesn't support searching messages! Can you believe that? Better Facebook integration. Possibly support for WhatsApp.
  • If WhatsApp integration is not possible - then a better client.
  • Pocket, Instapaper
  • Flipboard, Feedly. There used to be a native Pulse app, but now it's web only. And, I couldn't get it to work.
  • Google Maps. Honestly, IMO nobody can beat Google at maps when it comes to accuracy. At least, in my country.
  • Option to change default search provider. I will use bing when it gets the job done for me. At the moment it doesn't.

Am with you on the maps & search provider. It sucks to always first open and then search.

I wish the next update to WP8 at least fixes some of these.
