Windows Mobile 10080 – A hot mess

So, I rolled back to Windows 8.1 using the Nokia Recovery Tool, as the latest Windows Mobile build is actually worse than the previous one.

It did add Office.  That was nice.  Kind of. 

The continual inability of it to ‘acquire licenses’ while trying to update things like the MSN apps meant that the start screen was usually unavailable.

But what really made it unusable to me was how the continued inaccuracies in touch on the Lumia 1520 meant that in OneNote, it couldn’t figure out how to place the cursor, often causing it to select an entire block of text.  Which on at least one occasion caused it to delete.  Which you can’t undo, because OneNote doesn’t have an undo.

That just won’t do.

So, waiting for the next build to have a usable start screen, which I hope is soon as the look of the UI itself is pretty fantastic.  The new start screen, once configured, and for the 10% of the time it actually would display, was phenomenal.
