    But reality is many apps are leaving there exist support like paypal, amazon, and more they are developed by other developer.

    But Here, Health vault are developed by MS still drop support!

    Even Microsoft doesn't give a damn about Windows Phone 8.1 anymore. They even don't want to support Skype on this platform, while it will stay available on the ancient Android 4.0.3... That's a ****ty message

    There is no app gap how many apps are actually going to be used by the consumer

    I feel like the main reason for most people to not get WP or switchto another OS is the absence of applications and I understand it. I myself am frustrated by the absence of (what else than) Snapchat. While all my friends are snapchatting all I can do is look at my screen hoping that one day I will be able to join them. But that's not what I wanted to talk about.

    Few days back there was a leak of information about project Astoria and people talking about getting their desired Android applications to work on W10M. I was excited about the news, so I decided to join the crowd and try some Android apps on my own. I did some research before and found out that Snapchat does't work (I might be wrong), so I went to all my friends with android phones and asked about apps I should try on my W10M.

    After about an hour of disscussion no one could suggest a reasonable app for me to install. The reason is simple, I already had them. I already had native apps ( like Uber, Instagram, Shazam), unofficial clients (6tag, 6tin, Telescope) or good alternatives.

    For sure there is plenty of apps missing (I can't see any Couchsurfing app, etc.) and there are people needing those apps, but I think we have fairly good base.

    I think the reason for people thinking we don't have apps is that they heard it somewhere and/or they just don't know. For most of the users I'm sure there is more than plenty of apps.

    So, is there really that huge app gap everyone is talking about?
    The Gap truly is great and I think that saying we should all accept it is lame. Microsoft is at fault here and should get back on self promotion

    Exactly. I think I have read people use, on a regular basis, about 5 apps.
    My wife was trying to open her Weightwatchers app on her Iphone 6 tonight. It wouldn't open so I had her reboot her phone.. Wouldn't open. She said people have been complaining lately that it's not working well.
    Everything is not all rosy in appland as many would have you believe.

    Because apps are created but later abandoned. They app paradigm is dying out, so an "app gap" won't be an excuse in the coming years.
