Apps I’ve given up on: GroupMe, or DON’T TAKE AWAY ROOMS MICROSOFT

I’ve been ranting about apps on Windows Phone for a while, so I’ve decided to do a new series of posts about apps I’ve given up on. I really believe that I do not need more than a few apps beyond the native ones.

This first rant though, is directed at Microsoft. They announced that Room support would end on 31 March, but they carried on working. Instead, support will now end in June. I’ve mentioned before about how using Rooms has been an integral part of my daily phone usage.

I don’t want to go back to Whatsapp. All the alternatives – Line, WeChat, KakaoTalk, Telegram, Threema – all have something I don’t like. Cyber Dust appeared intriguing, and with a nice looking WP app, but honestly, I just don’t feel like it.

Microsoft’s suggestion is to use GroupMe. The problem is, the app is wack. I don’t like it. I honestly thought Microsoft would say “Hey guys, guess what, we’ve actually improved Skype for Phone since we’re trying to integrate back into the system, so use that instead!”

Sweet dreams are made of this…


So, when June arrives and the Room stops working, I’m not sure what the SO and I will do. Probably Whatsapp.
