Wait, did I just read that correctly? Yes, Microsoft has stopped supporting the Windows Phone and publicly made announcements that they switched to Android. Bill Gates could be the reason for the blame but who knows.
I find this news a little disappointing as I’ve spent hours making sure my apps run on Windows Phone 8.1 and 10. However changes like this are expected as new technology arrives, competitors make other products obsolete at a faster pace. Once a piece of software is created, its never a finished product, we must update it often to stay relevant. Unfortunately Windows Phone wasn’t innovated enough and didn’t keep up.
Moving forward this also means I have no reason to update my Windows Phone apps but will only focus on desktop versions for Windows 10.
We have tried VERY HARD to incent app devs. Paid money.. wrote apps 4 them.. but volume of users is too low for most companies to invest. ☹️ https://t.co/ePsySxR3LB
