Readly, Runtastic,SmartThings, State Bank of India Say Farewell To Windows Mobile Users

Big name apps continue to vacate the app store, with each one piling further pressure on those remaining. In the first three weeks of 2017 we've seen Minecraft and Runtastic abandon users with no further updates; and now Readly joins SmartThings and the State Bank of India in killing their apps completely.

If Microsoft has ambitions in the mobile space it's going to find that its empty app store is going to limit sales of even the most adventurous Surface Phone; and abandoned users are far from likely to forgive and forget this self inflicted immolation of the Windows Mobile platform.
