My hope is that the Windows app store is on track to provide a tablet experience that competes with Android and iOS. I'm contacting the companies who make some of my most commonly used apps and asking about their plans. Stitcher, Pandora, and Redfin responded quickly. They each thanked me for the suggestion and said that they do not have any plans to make a Windows app. Instead of acting all defensive ("the app store is young" and "you can do everything on PC anyhow" (so untrue - just try depositing a check to your bank), or my personal favorite, "people who haven't seen what is possible with iOS and Android apps wont know the difference", I'd like to see MS acknowledge that this is a weak area and a competitive disadvantage that they are working to fix. I'd like to know that instead of sit back and wait, they are targeting top app makers with technical support and incentives. Have you contacted any app making companies? What kind of responses are you getting?
