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. ☹️

I’m loving the real talk on Windows Phone from . It’s failure was not for lack of trying. The energy is better spent elsewhere.

At last a Microsoft employee giving honest answers. Thank you Joe. I switched to Android and use Microsoft launcher and apps. Very happy..

Joe, the problem was with MS constantly rebooting the WP platform and not ever commuting to it at the end. Dev's got burned.

Look at iOS. They support and commit to old devices and versions so well - only reason is to keep DEV's on platform.

Thanks for giving us some definitive honesty/frankness for a change. Biggest source of frustration for the community.

What killed WP is not apps, but your update policy. My friends, Family used WP. You failed to keep people in your ecosystem.

So what now, you have a "supported" mobile platform that is not going anywhere. You're either all in or you're out. Users suffer otherwise!

You paid the price for breaking changes. 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 8,1, 10. Everytime big investments to update apps. Once okay, but not 5 times.

The problem is the semi supported nature of the platform is serving only to kill off any remaining support. Get fully behind it or kill it.

You encouraged companies with money and indie devs with reward points. You kidding me with that?

Also, what happened to Android apps on the phone? Got to be better than killing your other wise good platform? We never really heard why?

Instead of having apps ready you proudly presented platform and though community will take care of the rest.

Thanks JoeB for you candor. I don't know which does the most pain, the fact that WinMobile died or MS non-communicative stand.
