I mean... seriously, Microsoft. Fine to make an iPhone or Android app too. But do you know how frustrating it is for loyal Windows Phone users to see the big Microsoft logo beneath the Apple App store one, with nothing at all for Windows Phone.
Agree, this is ridiculous. Especially with the latest push t towards cross platform dev, and Microsoft's acquisition of Xamarin.

Microsoft made the app? Or was it Apple?
Bedankt Microsoft, zal nog eens een windows phone kopen.

At first it struck me as odd that Microsoft would make an app for another OS without it also being released on windows own platform, but now I'm even more dumbfounded to discover that I can sign in on MicrosoftGarrage with my google-acount but not with my Microsoft-account? What the -bliip- is going on Microsoft?
Jay Roberts commented
I too thought it was ridiculous there is no WinPhone app. The person at Microsoft who decided it was OK to release this app for competing platforms except their own needs to be FIRED. Come on, seriously? What exactly is the point of this? You think that Apple users will switch to the Windows platform out of gratitude? Oh and I like the idea for the app, it's just hard to be loyal to any brand that doesn't look after it's own customer base first.
Microsoft apps should always appear on their own devices. The lack of parity across platforms has increased tension with in the windows mobile community and further erodes reasons to support the platform. Surely, someone has to recognize this subversive behavior.

Seriously, your making it too easy for me not to buy another windows phone. No app should be released to a competitor that is not already a windows phone app.

>>You do know that Microsoft announced that they are giving up on Windows phone and no longer going to develop it any further.
Uh, that's completely false.You're probably basing this on some doom and gloom opinion piece you've swallowed as fact, but Microsoft has said or done nothing of the sort and indeed has indicated otherwise.
Without an actual official citation (for which there is none), you seem to be about as reliable as Fetch was when it identified our pet guinea pig a Norwegian Elk hound.

Nadella's way: "mobile (other os) first, cloud first" ... maybe windows later, worst and with less functions
Seriously? No Windows Phone version?
You do know that Microsoft announced that they are giving up on Windows phone and no longer going to develop it any further. They might develop a whole new os but they not announced any plans on their future on mobile.
