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.

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

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

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.

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

It’s hard to stay with a platform under constant reboots, and with no reason to stay. MS doesn’t support it, why should devs?

Writing new apps for w10 desktop with UWP gets free w10 mobile (almost) so lack of motivation on w10M suggest lack of desktop uwp apps too?

Plus ignoring smaller (EU) countries, plus not updating phones, plus limited features, etc. Pity though, dev. environment was the best.

It’s guaranteed that my next phone will be either Android or iOS, and I’ll be switching off of MS’s services.

There were more factors involved. I agree on that, but those changes started the end.

What was the problem with that? Emulating hyper-v inside hyper-v? Still worked well with VMware.

It could just be that can run Android apps! I'd buy that if Ms actually supported it properly like desktop os

Hyper-V is monopolistic (makes sense on server) and won't allow other emulators. Usually you develop cross platform and your stuck with one.
