New Windows Phone 8 GDR3 info and images

31 posts in this topic

its not new it feels old like in symbian days, if you have windows 8 and windows phone 8 you would expect similar behavior at least in some parts of the OS, look at apple they copied windows phone multitask screen and they added swipe down functionality from windows 8  you would expect this kind of functionality already implemented on windowsphone

 

The X button is consistent within WP8 as the same mechanism is used to close IE tabs, it's obvious and it works well.  Why does it need it be consistent with a totally different OS?

I want the ability to add custom labels to contact phone numbers. Does anyone know if it is coming in this build?

Metro IE uses close buttons but apps are still closed by dragging down. Nobody has a problem with that. They're obviously moving toward convergence, they should actually have a consistent UI. It's possible I guess that the close button is just a stop-gap to get people moving in that direction (since the animation does go down).

This is true, it could change in 8.1 for all we know.
