What new features were added to WP after 7.5 Mango update?
Let's leave internal and technical improvements out of it. Just try listing down the consumer facing features since WP 7.5 Mango update. Genuinely curious what Microsoft did after Oct 2011.
Post is not intended to troll. I've been a WP user since Aug 2011 and just disappointed in general lack of updates from Microsoft and how many here simply brush aside anyone who calls out this fact as a troll.
Listing a few below:
- Lock screen notifications & wallpapers
- IE 10
- Wide & Small live tiles
- Dual core processor & 720p display support
- Offline Maps & Navigation
- Always on WiFi
- App list backup to cloud
- New languages support
- Kid's corner
- CalDAV & CardDAV support
- More accent colors (?)
Please let me know things I missed. Only core features implemented by Microsoft counts. Apps & OEM specific features are not to be included.
Just as a postscript, please note that it is 2 years approx. since Mango update was announced.
