I think you and a lot of WP users have a sense of entitlement when it comes to things like this. Simply put: no developer has to build apps for WP if they don't want to. No accessory maker has to support WP if they don't want to. What I don't understand is, if these companies won't support WP users, why would WP users want to support them at all? As for the perception that MS is "old" or "out of touch," did that somehow come out of nowhere? Who do you think is responsible for that perception? It wasn't something that was forced upon them by outside influences. It's a perception they cultivated on their own.
I have no sense of entitlement. Just stating my opinion about those running these companies, and pointing out that no amount of feedback to these companies or increase in market share will make these companies give a rip about the WP platform. I don't say that as a sense of entitlement, but to get people to shut the ___ up about snapchat, because it just doesn't do any good to complain in this instance. I'm sick of seeing all the posts about it. How in the world could you have assumed that I of all people have a sense of entitlement, just because I mentioned they were anti-Microsoft?
I am not wanting SnapChat on the Windows platform at all. I DESPISE such apps, and if you read my posts in other SnapChat threads, you'll figure that out pretty quickly.
These are the kind of companies I wouldn't support even if I were on iPhone or Android, because I don't like their business practices. It's part of why I quit all Google services years before I got a Windows Phone.
All the apps that I need are already on Windows Phone. For most things, I prefer to use a browser on my Laptop if it's about a site online. I don't need an app for that.
