Why Abandon Billions? Universal apps provide access to ALL WINDOWS DEVICES equaling billions (85%) worldwide. Yet you side w/google & apple (less than 15% share)...

Why would you abandon Windows Phone? Windows Phone may only have a 3% market share today but its big brother Windows has a dominate 85% market share over all other devices. Microsoft Universal apps provide access to a market of billions of Windows devices PC, XBOX, Phone, Tablet, Servers, etc.. Further your web site is not very good. It can never provide the polish that applications can. Your choice is not logical. I provide & control 200+ windows phones and 400+ PC's to my user base. I have barred intuit applications and advised my users on other solutions. I advise other CIO's to do the same..."

Answer

Please...


They're abandoning Windows Phone, which is a platform that nobody uses/cares about.


Stop talking about Windows 10 here.


Intuit is not going to make a "universal Windows app" for you. Sorry, but it's the truth. The "Windows Store" on Windows 10 is another failed idea, just like Windows Phone.


So please, get off the Microsoft KoolAid and go get a real phone.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
