Re: Not Android or iOS? Apps is the killer problem for MS
said by 88615298:Total #'s are worthless. Who cares if Apple, or Google, or MS have 673 calculator apps and 1457 notes apps, etc, etc.
Yeah sucks they "only" have 100,000 aps so far
Does MS have the latest Angry Birds, Facebook, Netflix, Gmail, Maps, Comcast remote control, Pandora, Instagram, Kindle, Pinterest, Skype, Red Box, etc, etc apps? That is where MS falls down.
Angry birds: check, facebook: check, netflix: check, gmail: check, Bing maps and Gmaps: check, Comcast remote: nope... have to ask comcast, Pandora: Check (MetroRadio is better than the stock pandora app), Instagram: nope, but possibly 3rd party app, kindle: check, Pinterest: Not officially, but there is a high rated 3rd party app, Skype: Will be integrated in WP8 and has an app for WP7, Redbox: check.
The WP ecosystem has grown immensely this year. They might not get the latest craze like words with friends when it first comes out, but there are plenty of other devs that will end up making something similar.
