Should developers support Windows Phone 8?

Un pobre guey (593801) writes | more than 2 years ago

Android 1

Un pobre guey (593801) writes "Why should you develop apps for Windows 8? Well, the hype and flogging are apparently in full swing. From TFA: "To be clear, Windows Phone 8 is not a slam dunk. Some, such as IDC, believe Windows Phone will eclipse iOS by 2016. Others though believe the trajectories of Android and iOS can't be slowed in the next few years. Nonetheless, I think a bet on Windows Phone 8 is justifiable, even wise, since anyone who purchases a new Windows Phone 8 device likely will want to load it with the latest and greatest apps.""

Foregone conclusion much? (0)

Nonetheless, I think a bet on Windows Phone 8 is justifiable, even wise, since anyone who purchases a new Windows Phone 8 device likely will want to load it with the latest and greatest apps.

I like how that's just thrown out there as if it's a foregone conclusion that people are going to buy Windows Phone 8 devices in droves, and that it's somehow our responsibility to support those people's stupid decisions.
