Well I think its the most boring ugly os I've seen. Ios is boring. Android was ugly as all hell until 4.0. Ios is really boring. It should have gone to android or web os.

Except I bet that unlike android 3rd party apps (and even native features to the OS) that routinely crash and are completely buggy, WP7 probably work without crashing. Or at least I'd hope...

There is something wrong with the android phones you were using than. I don't even get crashes on beta ICS roms anymore.

Running CM 7.2 on my LG Optimus V. Even on the stock OS apps would crash.

Apps frequently crash on my stock Asus TF too, both stock apps and market apps.

Don't even get me started on the netflix and hulu apps...

Apps also frequently crash on my ipod touch running iOS 5.

It's the nature of the beast. Some people get lucky, others don't. I don't do any mod'ing, and use pretty routine apps, so I have no idea why I experience routine crashing of apps on my devices while others claim to have no issues whatsoever. redface.gif

From what i hear Windows Phone 7 is a great OS and is a strong contender along with android when i upgrade next year. By then more features will be added and the marketplace will have grown even more, it already includes all of my favourite games - angry birds, doodle jump, tetris.

I'm using an Atrix atm. It is a great little phone. I've always had my eye on the WM7 OS, but the lack of app development for it currently has kept me at bay. Hopefully this is rectified in the future. I use many apps and it would be less convenient to switch for me even considering the new UI.

I don't actually have or use a windows phone, but according to this site they've got over 60k apps now. I'm sure there are some that are worthless (like android and iOS), but I gotta think that when you start getting into that many apps you've gotta be able to get just about whatever you want/need...?

I'm a huge fan of Android, but if I wasn't so invested in Google I would have bought a Windows phone in a heartbeat.

Well in thoery 60,000 apps should provide you with the basics. for communication.

The problem starts in specific applications for more advanced users, Windows Phone Marketplace is not mature enough to meet these type of users,but it will get there very very soon.

^this, widgets on android suck big time, they always crash and are unresponsive. Tiles on WP7 however works perfectly

wrong. think about the niche apps. everyone uses one. for example, i use an app called droidcam to let me use my phone as a webcam over wifi. it is VERY niche. good luck finding something like that on a market with 60k apps.

i dont feel like linking to the article right now, someone do it for me if it bothers you (TIRED redface.gif) but ios apps actually crash more often than android apps do. the only reason people think android crashes more is because you get an error message unlike ios. on ios it just falls back to the launcher or whatever and usually just think you accidentally hit the home button or something. and maybe you should try changing apps if it is bothering you that much. and if its a GAPP then consider changing roms.
