    Microsoft hopes Windows Phone summit can shrink the app gap | Mobile - CNET News

    Windows Phone OS may not have the market share or the apps, but one thing I will say is that Microsoft is finally going after developers with more vigor. This time it's to the tune of a developer summit on June 21 and 22.

    Microsoft is serious about closing the gap separating its Windows Phone application Marketplace from Android's Google Play and iPhone's App Store. The San Francisco location couldn't be a better spot to tap into Silicon Valley's software-development mojo.

    It isn't that the Redmond giant hasn't tended its app garden, which it had to restart from scratch after plowing under its previous Windows Mobile platform. In fact, Microsoft has been actively seeking top app shops and independent coders before ever announcing its first Windows phone.

    I agree and hopefully this will bring widespread attention to the platform as they tie it in with Windows 8..as captain quirk said "sounds like fun"

    I don't console game anymore so I am def. locked into Valve. I would love if they could get an app that lets you do everything you can do on the desktop client. Don't know about it though considering xbox's gamer points are somewhat in competition with Valve's achievement system.
