There is no official dedicated Facebook Messenger app for Windows Phone 7.x; They chose to only support 8.0 (and later). There is an official Facebook app though, which does work on Windows Phone 7.5 and later. If I remember correctly, you can also still use Facebook chat via the built in Facebook integration via your "Me" tile (also in the address book), ...

WhatsApp has been temporarily pulled from the Store (starting the evening of May 17, 2014). A new, improved version has been published on the store on the 31st of May. Updates: I've read that WhatsApp is still available for WP 7.x devices, but can't confirm this myself. This is not the first time WhatsApp has been temporarily pulled from the store. Rumor ...

With this set, the store will check for apps "periodically", and download and install updates without requiring user intervention. For me, this I notice this typically just as I pick my phone up first thing in the morning, and the phone signs on to mw WiFi network, as I'll get an entry in the notification centre saying "x apps updated". It might check more ...

There is a petition for Snapchat which has over 57k signatures. So there's a pressure. Other than that it's impossible to answer your question due to the fact that both companies haven't made an official announcement regarding the matter. Let's hope soon.

This is working on my Nokia ...

Microsoft explains very specifically what each capability allows a developer to do. ID_CAP_APPOINTMENTS Provides access to appointment data. ID_CAP_CONTACTS Provides access to contacts data. ID_CAP_GAMERSERVICES Provides access to Xbox LIVE services. This capability must be disclosed because an app could share data with Xbox. ID_CAP_IDENTITY_DEVICE ...

Yes, all the apps you have purchased can be downloaded for free after a hard reset as long as you still sign in with the same Microsoft Account. As for in-app purchases, this depends on the kind of IAP and how the developer has implemented it. If it's a single purchase (like removing ads) you should be able to just re-buy it for free. If it's a consumable (...

If an app on Windows Phone 8.1 requires an update which requires new permissions (eg. access to contacts), that app will not be updated automatically. The user will have to open the Windows Store app, and manually start the update process, which will inform them of the new permissions required to use that app. The Google Play store on Android operates in ...

Packages are first downloaded, and then unpacked/installed, and it is that download size that is shown in the store. Because it has to download it and then install, you typically need at least twice the size of the package free to install it (although the size of the download package would be freed after installation)

Solution Change the region of your phone to the region you used when you downloaded the app. When the regions are the same you'll be able to review the app. Cause This error occurs when the app you are trying to review is not available in the region your phone is set to. This is probably what you did: You found an app available in another region You ...

As far as I know, both of those games require 1 GB of RAM(1), and the Lumia 520 only has 512 MB. So that's the reason you're not able to find them in the Store. This should be standard behaviour - apps that aren't compatible with your phone for whatever reason don't show up in searches. You can always search for the app at WindowsPhone.com, or open the ...

Assuming you mean the Windows Phone Store (which, at least for now, is separate from the Windows Store), the answer is yes, it is possible. Just go to http://www.windowsphone.com/store and log in with the same Microsoft account that you use on your phone. Then, find the app you wish to install and click the big "Install" button (or "Buy"/"Try" if it's a paid ...

There are many reasons: The developer of this app does not allow to install (or access) to SD Card. Your SD card has error, try to reset it and install the app again. If this app is developed by you and you deploy it from Visual Studio, I think that there is a problem about unlock your device. I hope my answer can help you !

I think the best option would be to buy him a Microsoft Store Gift Card (you can get those anywhere between $10 and $100 for example at amazon) that he can redeem on his account. Then there's no need to link your credit card to his account. More Information

The only way to contact a developer is by giving a review (which, by the way, is not necessarily a bad option), or if the app has an option to contact the developer.

Currently there is no "Favorites" feature in the Windows Store. I probably would use the "Share" button so save the app link to a OneNote page or a similar app. You can also add large apps to the download queue where they should wait for Wifi connection before downloading - not sure what the current threshold in W10M is though. You should definitely add ...

I believe that is the default store behaviour. It creates an app version according to the current date and certain other parameters. But if you install the app and see the appversion then it would be same as the one you have mentioned. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26910934/wrong-version-number-submitted-to-windows-phone-store-is-it-possible-to-correct ...
