Why Windows Phone is not Taking Off

 

Brad Reed:

Windows Phone is in a real Catch-22: App developers won’t make apps for the platform if Windows Phone doesn’t get more users and Windows Phone won’t get more users until more app developers make apps for the platform. And it’s not enough for Microsoft to just throw cash at developers to get them to bring their apps to the platform long after they’ve become hits — the company needs a way to get developers to put Windows Phone on the radar right from the beginning.

Being a long time iPhone user, I have used a Windows Phone and to this day absolutely adore the user interface of Windows Phone. The Live Tiles, fonts, ease of use is very refreshing in a Android and iOS dominated world. It is a shame that Microsoft is not gaining traction in the market because of 3rd party apps or lack off – that’s the bottom line.
