    I thought we could use a list of official major windows store apps that have either been abandoned by their developers and/or badly lack in features compared to their iOS and android counterparts or are outright missing. The developers of such apps truly deserve to be in this great hall.

    (D): Desktop
    (P): Phone


    • ebay, Adobe Reader, Hulu Plus, Allrecipes: 11/2014 (P)
    • Amazon Kindle, newegg, RadioTunes: 9/2014 (P)
    • Flixster, Fandango: 7/2014 (P)
    • Pizza Hut: 6/2014 (P)
    • Vimeo, McDonald's, Hobby Lobby: 4/2014 (P)
    • Garmin StreetPilot: 3/2014 (P)
    • Waze: 2/2014 (P)
    • LinkedIn: 12/2013 (P)
    • Tumblr: 9/2013 (P)
    • MapQuest: 8/2013 (P)
    • SoundHound: 5/2013 (P)
    • Speedtest.net: 4/2013 (P)
    • Crackle: 8/2012 (P)
    • IMDb: 6/2012 (P)
    • Crunchyroll: 5/2012 (P)
    • ...

    Lacking in features:

    • Skype
    • ...


    • Almost the entirety of google apps
    • Intuit's apps e.g. Mint
    • SoundCloud
    • ...

    I didn't have much time to research, so the current list is quite short. Please fill free to reply with the names of such apps and pointing out the category they should be put in and which platform.
    If the app is lacking in features, if possible, point out what's missing exactly.

    I'll add them to the list periodically. If I've made a mistake, please let me know.
    If a developer is working on a UWP app, point it out so that I'll add a note.
