    No they won't immediately be available! The tools will be released and it's up to the devs to process the apps themselves - it's their apps and their course if they want to support wp. So, say, if snap chat don't want to be on the platform; it won't happen. Or we'll be back to hoping some third party makes an app.

    Microsoft has no intention to offer Android stuff through its own store but to offer developers easy solution to port their code to win platform...

    There is another factor. Apparently many apps can run unaltered. Developers of those apps will have slightly more incentive/pressure to port them and put them in the Windows store because if they don't some people will pirate and side-load them making it harder to put the genie back in the bottle when and if they get around to it.

    Oh sure, agreed - though I don't know one will be side loading anything to the new w10m..? - but ya, ultimately it's their choice to bring their offerings over. MSFT has made it easy reach generation and still people don't bite or treat it as a far afterthought. Hopefully that changes!

    I have A Samsung tablet a samsing phone and a windows laptop. I could synch everything including myvamazon music. Iswitched to a winphone because I thought with office365 deverything would mesh just fine,
    ,boy was I surprised.
    No amazon, no sirrius radio, no calendar solution, contacts are a nightmare.
    Have 28 days left to decide... most likely back tp android.

    If the ported apps (not the high end games) can run well in the lower end lumias then its going to flood like crazy and breathe life into the WP ecosystem, it all depends on the performance without any bugs. Assuming they are easily allowed in the store or elsewhere....
