    Wow, dare I say what a b*tc*y move. I hope apple reaps what it sows , of course they are getting all the hate on the twitterverse right now.

    How many of you use HopStop ? I think it is no longer published in the windows phone store, can anyone confirm?

    Apple Buys HopStop and Immediately Drops Windows Phone Support | WindowsObserver.com

    and they let the Android version live.

    You're right. It isn't being published anymore.

    I wouldn't have any use for this app, since Nokia Transport provides the bus/commuter train info, but I don't know if Nokia Transport is available on all Windows Phones, or if it's exclusive to Nokia devices. If Nokia Transport is exclusive to Nokia devices, then I could see where people who have HTC or Samsung devices might not be too happy that HopStop is discontinued.

    It's funny because I never even heard of HopStop, even though it used to be available in US.

    Do you have Nokia Transport?

    Yep, we do. The funny thing is in India nothing runs on time :D .. buses, trains etc .. are always late

    I sometime get on the buses which were supposed to arrive 5 mins earlier as the app suggested :P

    No one supports the Philippines anyway, so it's not of any concern to me.
    But, still, this is quite a move. I wonder why they did this.

    If they put up the not enough market share argument, I can always argue that there's an active dev community :)

    Here, the buses are always early. They're competing with each other for the passengers.

    For example, not a day goes by without a bus accident due to overspeeding.

    Trains here are on time, but people need to get to the station early. We have the absolute most unfriendly machines at the stations to buy train passes. It involves about 10 steps just to use money or credit card to purchase a pass from these infernal machines. I've never seen anything worse anywhere else. It would be easy to miss the train whilst attempting to purchase a pass.

    Us people here in the Philippines have it way worse. People actually live right beside the tracks. And, if I'm not mistaken, jeeps can actually fly above the tracks. And get hit by the train, of course.

    I cannot imagine anybody in Germany is using this: we have "DB Navigator" which supports all types of trains and busses across the country :D

    Is a real crappy move by Apple if this is the case. I don't use it or even heard of the app as I use Nokia Transport in Canada which works extremely well for me.

    Nokia Transit is decent, but not good enough. It doesn't give full route information and timetables.

    Typical apple trying to monopolise the market to stay on top....wont work. Wp is growing and growing and one app wont mean anything.

    Considering alot of forums sre calling their "budget" iphone a lumia wannabe and a bad one at that this wont achieve anything.
