    I recently bought a Lumia 735 and was looking at the 293 apps in my apps list in the app store to see which ones to put onto my new phone. I noticed that some of my favourite apps were either missing or couldn't be downloaded. Apps like Mirror's Edge, Tapatalk Classic, Aviary Photo Editor, TENplay, Amazing Weather HD, and - my personal favourite - Wikipedia by Rudy Huyn, cannot be re-downloaded. There are the big apps like eBay, PayPal, Amazon et al which we all know were shut down due to insufficient users. Some apps still work if it was installed before being pulled from the store while others are just inoperative. I understand it can be worked around by downloading a copy over at www.appx4fun.com but not all apps can be reinstalled - at least not on non-developer phones.

    So, which discontinued, unsupported or unavailable apps for Windows Phone do you miss?

    I liked "Insider Pro" by developer DAONE a lot.
    A favorite on 8.1 for me.

    Amazing Weather HD being discontinued really bites deep...

    NOAA Hi-Def Radar is somehow "lost" on the store. I mean the store cannot find it. It still works great on my W10 laptop, but I can't get any phone to find it in the store to install and the store on PC draws a blank as well. The curse of a clean start is that you have to give up things... Maybe. I found an alt source for the appx and am happy I have NOAA Radar back on my daily driver. But Amazing Weather HD is still gone. The best weather app for me on Windows Phone. Can't dig the alternatives nearly as much.

    The original Microsoft Health and Fitness App was pretty great. Sad they squashed all the functionality out of it and morphed it into Band App. They sort of shot themselves in the foot there.


    Probably more later...
