    I had to change from my good windows 8.1 phone to Android phone do to lack of APP's
    I found out there of MS APP's that have been update for the Android

    If you do a Google search for Has Microsoft given up on Windows Mobile you'll get a lot of search results, for example, this article: Microsoft drops Windows Phone by the side of the road, drives off

    Microsoft technically hasn't given up on mobile, but it recently spent more time talking about iOS and Android than its own mobile platform
    Whilst I don't know of any official statement by Microsoft itself (but could be wrong), it's articles like this that show why there are no updates.

    I'm very unhappy if MS is dropping Windows Mobile. I limped along with Android phones for years until I finally got a phone running Windows 10, and it's fantastic. Everything, and I mean everything, syncs perfectly between phone and computer. I'm not sure what apps people use that cause them to stare at their phones all day, but Windows phone has everything I need and lots more that I could add but don't need. I hope this phone lasts for years, especially if I won't be able to replace it with another Windows phone.
