Great When It Works

This doesn't app doesn't appear to work anymore. At least not for me. The app used to work great but I had to reset my phone due to some problems I was having. After reinstalling I can not use this anymore. Instead when I attempt to get preview builds it states that my phone can't be configured because an update is progress. No update is in progress. Restarting my phone etc does not resolve this. Until the above issue is fixed the app is largely useless. Before that however it was great.

I think there might be a bug or issues with this app. It is no longer allowing me after flashing device back to 8.1; then update it to windows 10. There is some "server error" issue when attempting to register my 1520 to insider

Only phone to use

This makes sense. The phone for smart and practical people who want to multitask.

Get updates

This allows you to get updates even if your carrier does not provide the latest version for your phone. Highly recommended. Just note that you must agree that there is a possibility your phone could brick since you will be installing pre-release versions of the Windows mobile OS. I have had no issues and my phone is like a new one now.

Review: WP10

I'd read nothing but complaints prior to installing W10 and waited this long because of it. I was speechless, stunned by the gorgeous UI. I absolutely love W10 on my phone. I finally understand why the richer Bing apps were discontinued, News simplified, Me hub and social integration removed, tiles less animated, less pinning, everything. WP10 is a PHONE that truly represents Microsoft. WP8 was innovative, unique, and too focused on unnecessary and flashy features. I signed up with Twitter solely because it could be integrated into the system. I spent too much time on social media I ordinarily didn't use, perfecting my tiles and start screen, etc. Ummm.. Microsoft didn't create a phone; they created their worst nightmare, aided by Nokia. The Me hub, social streams, and tiles created a user base consisting of (not all) arrogant, high maintenance, stubborn, entitled, outspoken, dedicated, most unique individuals. Microsoft has made one outstanding Phone. Thank you.

Does what its supposed to do

Some of the negative reviews on here bother me. The app is supposed to allow you to be able to install beta software. Sometimes its broken. You should know what you're installing. This app does its job and allows you to install preview versions of windows mobile. I'm happy with it, not all the builds however.

Insider program basically beta testing

Simple fact that I get to be apart of helping Windows Mobile improve. I don't know why there are 1 star 2 star even some 3 star rating and complaints. When you sign up for this program. It says it warns you this may cause your phone to malfunction or break. So I don't know why there's complaints about this, but it clearly warns you. Anyways I love it, I like to see the previews. Microsoft keep it up listening to your consumers your fans. Keep up the good work. Like what you're doing with the mobile and Xbox.
