Lack of application is still plagued by the development of the Windows 10 Mobile platform. Since the WP platform on the number of applications has been the biggest problem, although the current users believe that this problem will gradually fade over time, but in terms of Android and iOS is undoubtedly the largest short board. Naturally, at the same time, Microsoft has spared no effort to try a variety of ways to enrich the application of ecological system construction, in this process has experienced many setbacks and challenges, and timely adjustment according to the feedback. Next let us look at Microsoft in the WP application has made efforts to build.
Meet Android application:
Microsoft first thought of the strategy and blackberry in OS Blackberry 10 in the same way: to increase the support for Android applications. Microsoft has even considered in the future to support iOS applications, or to provide an easy way for iOS application developers will be applied to the Windows 10 system.
But currently two projects have been canceled, in addition to the new sources revealed that Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile system is no longer planned to introduce support for Android and iOS applications.
In early December held a meeting of shareholders, the former Microsoft CEO Ballmer on the company's latest mobile strategy to consult, and strongly recommended Android application should be landing WP platform. But the current CEO NADELLA explains general applications, and that this new attempt has great potential will ultimately succeed.
Nadella said: "this is a new. In the past we have carried out a variety of experiments, so that we now have a mall and an application platform. This allows us to have more time to focus on the application of R & D. We also see the positive changes brought about by this adjustment, application mall gradually become the core of the Windows system, more than 100 million of active users through the mall to find and download the application. So similar to Netflix and other developers can get more active in the application of active."
And recently, the company once again stressed the advantages of Universal applications, said there has been a growing number of developers began to develop applications for the Windows 10 system, including AccuWeather, Netflix, Pandora, Shazam, Twitter and other companies. Although there have been Universal applications landing Windows 10 system, but now that the strategy was a major success is still too early, including Google and Snapchat and other large application developers have not yet released the Windows version 10, they are not even interested in doing this.
Application status of WP platform:
According to Nielsen announced 2015 annual most popular Smartphone Application ranking list, Facebook topped the list, followed by Youtube, Facebook messenger and Google search. Although in the list did not see any applications from Microsoft, but it is undeniable that Microsoft has become the Android and iOS platform for large-scale application developers, including Office and other Outlook applications received a lot of positive evaluation.
In popular applications list of the top ten five paragraph belong to Google, including youtube, Google search, Google play, Google maps and gmail. However, these five applications are not landing WP platform (Search exception, but has not been updated for a long time).
For now, the application is still plagued by a lack of Windows like Mobile 10 WP, at least for now Universal applications have not gained enough influence, and this requires sufficient time to carry out the accumulation and optimization. Microsoft active in other competitive platforms, conquering and included Google, large software developer does not have enough interest to windows, never even had thoughts on login windows; and third party applications in did not obtain the authorization of the parent company (e.g. Google services, etc.) is obviously not for a Windows 10 system development and application.
