Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

The Google Plus API is an API in name only: It only supports access to a read-only public feed of data. In other words, shit that nobody implementing a client cares about.

However, you'd know that if you looked at the links you throw around to try to prove people wrong.

That, and the Google Voice APIs are a complete shitfuck, and they're not even APIs, they're screen scraping solutions half the time, and the other half the time some lucky XML feed Google felt gracious enough to expose.

None of it is enough to make a client which isn't brain dead.

So this becomes a case of A) Google grandstanding, because they will eventually write a Windows Store application. Mark my words, in a years time they'll have Metro clients for their services, and B) Google taking the decision out of everyone's hands by having a poor developer story to compliment their services.
