Yea, but even in the last year with Windows 10 phones, the whole APP thing has rocketed. Most likely, if you are complaining about a MS app today, chances are you are just being picky, when there are plenty of others that do the same, etc. I have found that developers make better use of their apps on WP10. (The formula 1 app is much better on WP10, than iOS, or Android for example.)
And honestly, with the xbox thingy and the new Surface phones rumored to come out in 4 months... I think MS is going to win a lot of disgruntled android and iOS users. WP10 is real.. and is the most robust smartphone ecosystem out there. It is time people took another look.
