Irish Banks still fail to provide Windows Phone apps for its customers. by @jimboireland #Banking #Apps

Irish Banks still fail to provide Windows Phone apps for its customers. by @jimboireland #Banking #Apps

It’s now September 2014 and Windows Phone has an estimated 10% market share in Ireland with Windows powered devices sales rising.

Sadly there is still an app gap for Irish users especially with local apps,the main apps are there either be it by third party which in some case can be better than the original.

Alongside this there is also much media hatred for Windows Phone and an ever increasing Apple only environment subsequently Blackberry is almost dead and we even have a banking app for that,Android and iOS do though remain the top two Operating systems worldwide.Windows phone is bigger than blackberry end of..

Windows Phone has had a rocky year with Mr Nadella taking the helm at Microsoft and has made some stern choices some of which make no sense and some do for its business model but he has let go lots of the good people from Nokia who had a role to play in the industry and build the Windows Phone platform,WP has took off so much in the last year we have new OEMs and other well known brands jump on the Windows platform.Nokia made windows phone attractive with its devices and MS now seem to be focusing on cloud and enterprise,strange move when its the ecosystem as a whole works both ways,mobile too…

The future now for windows phone is up in the air from my personal standpoint,as an avid fan and user too many wrongs and little or no rights have happened in the last few months which are putting people off and even windows user are moving to other platforms and to be honest i cant blame them.I myself use android purely due to the lack of local apps and to see what it has to offer.

From October last year we already approached the banks on the app situation and as per norm the typical scripted fobb off response came into play which makes it clear there will probably be no apps here for Windows Phone..

Lets start with Ulster Bank..These have apps on Android,iOS and Blackberry,which is a dead horse to be honest.

Last January

wpid-screenshot_2014-01-14-13-55-10-1

TODAY..fobbed off again as you can see,a complete contradiction to the last response.

UBWPAPP

Up next it is A.I.B

aibappwp

Blanked again so it seems by this financial institution currently has apps on Android and iOS

And finally its Bank of Ireland .. Apps on Android and iOS.

boiwpapp

Once again the usual fob off and have a nice day thank you very much,in a nutshell get lost. So there we have it,ignorance yet again or is it due to the lack of coverage of windows phone,the hatred by some other OS tech fanboys in the media whose preferences get so much coverage it shrouds the rest ?

Nokia Lumia 530 shell now on sale for €9.90 on Irish Microsoft store. by @jimboireland #Cases #Nokia

If you are in need of a new case for your Lumia 530 there is now a second case available from the irish Microsoft store for a bargain price of €9.90

There is also another Flip shell case available which will set you back €14.90 this is an option for some if they desire this style of case.

These are priced well and it also gives you the option to change over your colour which is nice as sticking with the same colour tends to get boring after a while.

The shell comes in Orange,Green and Black..Cases and covers are far and few between here in Ireland for the 530 so here at least you now have some form of option.

Last year when we attended the Nokia World conference in Abu Dhabi we got to see flipboard and spoke to some of the guys there too,over ONE YEAR LATER  Flipboard finally hits windows phone.. By the way it was announced in JULY 2013

fbss

My first impressions of flipboard are not good,in fact its disappointing compared to other similar apps there,flipboard does NOT FLIP this will be a huge let down to people who have waited almost a year for this app.

I am a full time windows phone user and like the OS as well as Android ,i love apps,Millions have waited for this app.

Watch the video below and see how it stacks up towards Android and rival app on Windows Phone Magnify ,which gets my vote..Android still has the best flipboard experience overall…

You can download Flipboard for Windows Phone  HERE Hopefully this app we have all…

Nokia Lumia 530 Flip shell now on sale on the Irish Microsoft store by @jimboireland #Nokia #Microsoft

Picked up the Lumia 530 lately ?  Protection is a must on your new device and i always recommend getting some type of case or cover ,having said that depending on the device it takes away the real beauty,say the 930 for example and it takes away the feel too when holding in hand,as a rule i say better safe than sorry.

The Nokia Lumia 530 flip shell is now available to buy on the Irish Microsoft store for a reasonable €14.90

 The Flip Shell comes in Orange,Green and Black

Keep both the front and back of your Nokia Lumia 530 safe with this protective flip shell. Hard plastic colourfully protects both the screen and the back side from bumps and scratches.
