    Say what?
    He's probably got it confused with launcher 8

    Although I think he's got it backwards on who copied who.

    I use Bing search, but I don't use any of the other MSN stuff much beside Weather. It looks like other people are also using MSN less. http://www.windowscentral.com/msn-re...t-bing-traffic

    Hardly ever use MSN anything.

    Kind of like Yahoo and Xfinity wanting everyone to use their start\home page websites.
    Way too much horsecrap going on.

    If I wanted certain content I'd ask for it versus having web crap like Kim Kardashian's antics shoved in my face.

    Let the other platforms have MSN...

    I'm not too worried by this news as the iOS and Android versions lack features compared to the WP versions.

    What features in particular are these apps missing?

    AFAIK they won't download articles for offline viewing and have no widgets on Android. Whereas on Windows 8.1 articles download for offline viewing and we have a Live Tile on both Windows and Windows Phone, at least for the news app.

    They also have terrible performance.

    But given Microsoft's past I am pretty sure they are working on a better version of the app as we speak, and it's likely the new version already in development will turn out to be better than what we have on Windows Phone.

    It is a sad truth really. :/

    The problem isn't about Microsoft offering msn apps for IOS & Android, it's about Microsoft not favoring their customers and giving WP some advantages. ( for e.g. Look for office for IOS and office for WP sadly IOS version is way better). And how Microsoft well make money from them, They are free and no ads on them.

    I think the differences have to do with what customers consider to be advantageous. For me, MSN and Office don't matter. I only use MSN weather (but it's my least used weather app), and I never use Office on my phone.

    Their goal is to ween people off Google and onto Bing.
    In actuality, MS's goal is to ween you off of Windows Phone and onto another platform. It's getting easier and easier each week.

    So funny - all you guys want Google to bring their apps/services to Windows Phone, but flip out when Microsoft does the same for other platforms... Who cares, it's flipping MSN news people.

    Welcome to the age where you should be able to get an app on ANY platform regardless of who it is made by. This is the future... stop whining.. "I'm losing faith.." good lord...

    Because it's a service platform. It should be available on everything. Microsoft is doing the right thing.

    Why should they? WP has nothing but a bunch of whiny users who are ready to throw their phone out every time they don't get their way. Apple/Google can just sit back and wait for everyone to come to them. No one has any backbone around here

    Yep why should they? And why did Microsoft did it for them but not for WP? I guess MS is doing all wrong on their strategies right? And another thing, baby cries and whines if he's hungry or want something/more, same thing with these whiny WP users who are feeling left behind by Microsoft.

    Windows phone user have two options. Throw in the towel and just get idroid. Or wait patiently for something to come their way. I think alot of users have been waiting patiently the past 4+ years to see WP not quite reach the parity of idroid yet. It's way better than it started but its still got a ways to go. But they're still waiting and quite frankly the waiting game sucks after a certain amount of time. And MS seemingly abandoning the current state of WP for w10 makes the waiting game not worth playing anymore. Because guess what, still gotta wait.
