    I realize that, but it didn't sound like the person I was replying to did. It sounded like he thought "well, its because WP has a low market share"
    Relax man, let me take you on a walk to the beach so you can forget about this thread and enjoy the cool breeze :).

    huh???? Google won't develop for WP because of market share? Then why would they develop for Firefox? It has probably 1/100 of the market share WP has.
    They did it for Firefox to give an extra FU to Microsoft. Microsoft is a direct competitor to almost every service Google has. Firefox is a drop in the bucket.

    Y'know what? I hope Google never gets an actual youtube app on Windows Phone. I feel bad for you guys, but I got 99 cents which I gave to myTube. (Metrotube is fine as well.) Didn't download the not crap app when it was released, don't plan on even trying it when it shows up again. If ever.
    Tobyus and hysonmb like this.

    I bought Supertube for $1.29 back when I was using my LG Quantum. I still use it to this day, and Metrotube is there as well. I prefer them over an official, ad filled app any day.

    The MS built YouTube app was great, it looked like they really paid attention to what the devs that built the other good clients did and made something worth using. Google is being about as anti-competitive as they can and it does hurt the WP user base in the end. Those of us commenting here won't likely be swayed by their playground level antics but a user walking into the store may walk out with a different device because Google doesn't have official apps in the WP store.
    MS may be taking the high road, but, I say they should drop a lawsuit from the high road and fight this out in court. If MS took heat for bundling IE with Windows because it supposedly blocked competition, what's this move by Google?

    You could take this post and replace "Google" with "Microsoft" and replace "YouTube" with "RD Client" or "Skype", and it would be just as valid. I know there is a WP Skype app but the last I knew it still sucked.

    Those of you that despise Google because of their ways/practices need to take a look at Microsofts track record along with Apple. None of these companies are innocent. They all play games with each other as do many other types of companies. At the end of the day though, you dont really buy into the way a company acts. You buy into the services they provide. In my opinion, MS rips off the customers more than Google or Apple. I shouldn't say rip off, thats harsh. They have been known to let down their loyalist more than anything is what I mean. When you look up the things they do/promised it just doesn't make sense unless they are really living in their own bubble or just not mentally capable of doing it. Not just with windows phone, but with Xbox, windows OS, etc. I don't play the favorites game anymore between the three. If they have something I want that doesn't break my bank or the economy and doesn't kick my dog, I'm cool with it. Lol.

    Hence I used the word trolled. Commenters get worked up over these things more and more these days :D ... that's the fun of comments on YouTube, Verge , Engadget etc ... Everyone thinks they know what people want and why companies act a certain way ..

    YouTube comments are a hate fest .. the rest are getting there

    Google is just lousy. Its unprofessional, unfair. I've stopped using a lot of google services.
    Lousy, perhaps. But I don't understand what you mean by 'unprofessional' - can you explain? And as for unfair - since when was business fair?
