    Got this in reply to my query...

    "Hi,

    If you would like to know when this feature becomes available, please let us know and we will keep you updated.

    Thanks for contacting us and please let us know how else we may improve the app for you.

    Have this a few weeks now and device is okay, I bought it to see if I use something like this and got it on the amazon deal so good price. It a good device for fitness, I like the sleep tracker. My issue is how often I have to charge it after 24 hours use I am below 40% so means I need to charge it every day but I say this would be the same similar devices, should of bought a second charging cable.

    Also anyone using the band1 with windows10 from the insider program, I don't get notifications on the band and assume as it because I have windows10, just want to check I haven't missed some configuration

    Does anyone remember the website/app that microsoft had that let you check what similar apps where available on windows phone?
    So if you wanted an app that wasn't available it gave you recommendations of similar apps that where available.
    Thought I seen it on this thread but couldn't find it

    They had an app "Where's My App?" That used to suggest alternatives for certain apps. I dont think it is curated any more as many of the apps recommended appear to be out of date.

    Virgin Ireland now have their "Virgin TV Anywhere Ireland" app available in the App Store (for Windows 10) - works streaming live TV to my phone and pretty quick to display the guide and box sets.

    Hailo hasn't got a Windows app, BUT they merged with MyTaxi which does, and the integration now seems to be complete, so you can use MyTaxi now. Hailo was the one common app I really missed, so it's great to see that gap filled unintentionally

    Three Plus app has been updated to the same level as iOS and Android (added the badges functionality, etc) and is now working again.

    Bus Nearby is no longer available from the Windows Store. Anyone know how to get it? Or can it be transferred from an older phone?

    I doubt it, on account of there being no support anymore

    Pity! An excellent app, working well. Seems a shame that if you lose or damage your phone, you lose the app as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 307 ✭✭Beagslife


    Try Journey Planner from the NTA.

    You might also be able to use the updated Maps by getting Directions and then selecting Bus. I'm out of Ireland at the moment so not sure if it works there.

    I think you are missing the bigger picture. That Windows Phone is effectively dead. If you lose your phone, you will find it very hard to get another one.

    Shame because it had great ideas.

    Yes, I know, but still plenty of 2nd hand ones on the market for fans as people rush to Android.
