I miss Windows Phone

I first gave up on Windows Phone back in December 2014. Microsoft’s mobile platform was being left behind, and I was tired of not getting access to the apps everyone else was using. It took Microsoft a few years to finally admit Windows Phone is dead, and the company is no longer planning to release any new hardware running its mobile OS or update it with any features. I recently switched on an old Windows Phone to create a silly April Fools’ joke about returning to using it as my daily device, and then it hit me: I really miss Windows Phone.

He’s not alone. I loved the way Windows Phone worked and felt, but sadly, it just didn’t have the applications, and Microsoft’s various transitions really hurt the platform too. Too bad – it was innovative and fresh.
