Minor Windows Phone 8 feature improvements noticed

WPCentral noticed 2 minor improvements in Windows Phone 8.

The first is that the media controls now disappear from the Lock Screen, an issue what has apparently bothered some Windows Phone users.  The improvement, which will see the controls disappear from the lock screen after a few seconds, can be seen in the video above.

The next, which appear in Windows Phone 7.8 ROMs and is expected to appear in Windows Phone 8, adds the ability to share an app right from the app list.

The feature will presumable go to the sharing menu, where links can be shared via email, social networks and, new in Windows Phone 8, tap to share.

These small feature improvements show Microsoft is in fact listening to their users, and once we have the OS in our hands we will hopefully see a lot more evidence of such polish.
