    The ecosystem isn't "dead" yet. OEMs are still releasing phones with W10M, devs are still supporting and even creating W10M apps, and even Microsoft is continuing development of W10M.

    Two main reasons why W10M should keep going on:
    1. Choice - If W10M went away entirely, we'd be basically stuck with Android and iOS, a virtual duopoly. Being dependent on only 2 companies to push the future development of smartphones is rather concerning. Sure, Android can be modified, but the underlying OS is still the same. In reality, people that are so against market monopolies, should be rooting for Microsoft to keep W10M going.
    2. Ecosystem - The UWP won't make as much sense if there's no "smartphone" to extend to; since mobile computing continues to grow (even though it's slowing) and most everyone will have one device, Microsoft needs some presence at least. Strong enterprise support is at least one way to build presence.

    I just found out about another app called Blicker.
    It is like Kahoot, for quizzes, but it works with bluetooth LE, i.e. no need for an internet connection.
    I think that's quite convenient. Also it is multiplatform (Windows (including Mobile), Android, iOS, Mac).
    I think it is promising though it still needs work. And the teacher app although can be opened in a phone, is unusable. (In a computer it is usable). But it looks like it keeps being updated so it might get better.
