    Inspired by the fellow member on these forums, I have started the online petitions to force the top developers to review their position on Windows Phone Platforms and consider bring their popular iOS and Android applications to the Windows Phone Platform.

    First Petition Posted

    Second Petition Posted

    Please support and spread the word on these petitions. If you would like to request an App and the Developer added to this petition, please review this post and post your preference. I will work with the post owner to gather your requests and post to the petition.

    Here is the direct link to post your App requests.

    Windows Phone 8 has the momentum at this time and only way we can force the developers to reconsider their position is talking to them directly and show that there is a good user base who will use their apps on WP platform. The petitions expire January 28.

    Thanks everyone for your support.

    And why do you say that.
    If we can get them to see there is a demand there is a chance.
    And we need good pobblisity that will give interest for the platform.

    P's I want my phone now. 

    The fact of the matter is that there isn't a demand, certainly not enough for them to cover development costs.

    I don't buy that. The number of Windows Phone users today is well over 15 million. There are plenty of users, developers simply choose the larger platforms. It is like choosing to sell in the USA and not Canada.
