gMaps: gMaps is a Google Maps app for Windows Phone that works as well as you'd expect. And as I don't actually know anyone who uses Bing Maps over Google Maps, this is the maps app you'd want. Best part is it's free. Free.

I've been using my mom's focus lately and while there is a lot to like about (Battery life and games), I've noticed some annoying problems.

1) I like the metro UI on the phone interface, but it bothers me to see in most of the apps. Sometimes, it just doesn't work and looks really ugly.

2) I really wish Microsoft would implement a media storage system like Android where I can drag my files to a drive quickly and painless. These syncing crap is really annoying, just as bad as iOS if not worse.

3) General lack of non-gaming apps. Part of the problem is multitasking. I can't find a good gtalk app b/c of it. And some of the popular apps on android and iOS aren't available yet.
