Microsoft Plans to Close the App Gap
In 2014, Microsoft had a plan on closing the app-gap for the Windows Phone. Although the Windows Phone’s are developing actively, Microsoft is still far from where they suppose to be as iOS and Android are currently on the top of the market. And many Windows Phone users have been complaining about missing software titles, but Microsoft’s committed to make things better.
Right now, the market shares are spread across three different platforms that left an important challenge for developers to consider Windows Phone’s. With Microsoft new leadership, we learned that how the company plans on improving the task. An unknown source from Mary Jo Foley‘s famous stories on Microsoft claims that the company is keying to fix the app-gap which was focus on two plans.
Plan A is to finalize Microsoft to attract developers to create apps which are compatible with the new Windows 10 products. This is something a lot of consumers agree upon its fascinating strategy, which allows Microsoft to focus on engaging new Independent Software Developers (ISVs). Microsoft will use their existing Developer Experience team as a guide for developers to create and build the best apps for Windows.
Plan B is a no surprise for all of us since we all are still hearing about how Microsoft plans to adopt Android apps if things go wrong. We are not sure if Microsoft can support Android on all of their Windows 10 products, but if this doesn’t work, Microsoft will not leave a good impression among developers that took the extra time to support Windows Phone.
As far as we know, more details will be out in the next few weeks. But let us know what do you think about Microsoft app-gap and by using Android apps if Plan A goes wrong.
