- ^ It still won't hurt to try. Petitions have worked in the past. Also, this petition does another thing for WP8 users; if we get hundreds of thousand, or even a million signatures, and Google still ignores it, they'll have a lot of PR work to do. They'll show that 1) They are liars, because they said initially WP8 doesn't have the userbase behind it to justify making apps, and if we prove them wrong, they'll either have to address this, or retract that statement.And 2) If they'll have to deal with the bad publicity of hundreds of thousands of those signaturees quitting their services, and publicising their disgust in Google; essentially calling them out on their BS. It can potentially snowball into something greater. Either way, we either get what we want, or we hurt Google's public image if they don't deliver. But either of those outcomes will work only if people sign the petition.12-30-2012 01:34 PM
- Below is what I have posted on Facebook, on the walls of Microsoft, Windows Phone, Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8 UK, Windows Phone 8 India, Windows Phone Dev, Windows Phone DE, HTC 8X, and Nokia:Bring Google Apps To WP8 Petition!!!
Some of you may know that Google has refused to develop applications for WP8. Some of you may not have a problem with this, because you may not use Google apps. However, millions of people around the world still use Google applications, and having access to these applications is a contributing factor in their decision to purchase a new smartphone. Because we want WP8 to have the best possible chance of success, I humbly ask that we all sign this petition, to help make WP8 a viable option to users who still use Google apps.
Let us ensure the growth of this wonderful mobile platform. Let us help make WP8 a success.
Please, sign this petition, thank you.

You're argument makes about as much sense as a giraffe living in a hobbit house, no freaking sense at all.12-31-2012 10:17 AM

- You know what that makes absolute since. I mean Google has never given apps to the competition, and that would explain why iOS has every single application that Google makes... wait what's that? iOS has every Google app?! Aren't they competitors? Wait didn't you say they wouldn't give WP apps because they're competitors?

- apple also hasn't attacked google publically .. And they are planning on not supporting IOS free apps as well .. Google changed YouTube to screw with WP ..its a war between WP and google .. So yes my argument makes perfect sense if you really understood how things work ... Google will never support WP again .. And we will probably end up losing YouTube too12-31-2012 10:39 AM
Remember the "If you don't have an iPhone, well you don't have an iPhone" ad campaign? Clearly a swing at Google.12-31-2012 10:40 AM

Now don't get me wrong I'm moving all of my services to Microsoft and it's simple and easy, but people are lazy and will just continue to do what they've been doing.01-02-2013 11:23 AM
- As has been stated numerous times in this thread, whether you're in the process of getting rid of Google services or not that doesn't mean Google's millions of consumers are too. WP needs Google's support to win those folks over whether you like it or not. If WP dies out and you have to switch to iOS or Android wouldn't you want Microsoft to make an application so you can continue using your Microsoft services? The same goes for potential consumers who do not use Microsoft's services religiously. They don't feel they should have to switch services just to get what they're accustomed too. Not having support of major developers will be the demise of WP if they can't get a proper backing by major companies and developers.
Now don't get me wrong I'm moving all of my services to Microsoft and it's simple and easy, but people are lazy and will just continue to do what they've been doing.01-02-2013 12:10 PM
- Bing sucks and Microsoft tracks you too. Everyone tracks you. I laugh at these Internet privacy warriors who think they are making a difference by abandoning Google. All you're doing is depriving yourself of the best search tool there is. Are you going to stop using YouTube as well? Good luck with that.01-02-2013 03:07 PM
