    Oh OP, why must you lie in your thread title? The article clearly states that he turned it down and was not poached.

    Good that he refused the offer. Google wanted him to stop developing apps on WP as this is one of the company policy to dominate. It looks WP started to cause headache to google which is a good news for sure.

    Maybe Google wants him to develop their apps for Windows Phone!

    Edit: scratch that; if this report is true, WP is not starting to cause Google any headaches!

    I don't believe it either, but it's every bit as credible as the other suggestions!

    Screw Google. Metrotube is better than the official Google made YouTube.

    Yes you did. Before you changed the thread title, you said he was poached by Google, which means he accepted it. Your current title is much more fitting.

    I'm pretty sure they just want him out of windows phone. HE's sort of the guy that's keeping things afloat in the WP community.

    What if they were trying to get him to make some real Google apps for windows phone... hmmm. That could have been interesting. O well.

    I'd hope he would never leave for google.i can't stand google by any means. Atrocious company.

    I hope Microsoft realizes the talent they have and harness him well.

    If I remember correctly, Rudy has accepted to work for Dropbox, first in France developing Europe business, then in the States.

    Just nit picking in my opinion. We're not professional writers.

    I don't understand why Microsoft hasn't hired this guy and made him head of app development. Unbelievable. I've never seen a company that's so good at killing their own products.

    The thing is Rudy has to stay independent to create apps for Windows phone that other developers wont develop for. For instance, Instagram, tinder, -- these two are known to ignore windows phone just because its rumored that they don't like Microsoft. IF Microsoft were to hire him, his apps will get noticed and taken down.

    You think those companies don't know about his apps? I'm sure they know about any popular 3rd party app for their services.

    I think they are aware. Instagram already approached him in the past for creating 6gram, I think. And promised on collaboration but fell short, so he re-released the app as 6tag because instagram was taking too long. Under Microsoft, he wouldn't have much choice, so its best to be independent and so Microsoft wont get in trouble and Microsoft just looks the other way. I have a theory Microsoft is paying him under the table.

    I don't recommend using third party apps, It's a big risk. People don't understand that they're trusting their password and content to a nobody that could do bad things with them. Who knows what kind of person is this guy Huyn.

    Microsoft should show a big warning when the users download these kind of apps.
