Microsoft to merge Windows Store and Windows Phone Store?
posted by Alan F. / Sep 26, 2013, 9:38 PM
Another one of the questions not answered for now is whether this will mean that Windows Phone apps will work on larger screened Windows devices. Microsoft might borrow a page from Apple and allow apps for larger screened devices to run on those devices only, while Windows Phone apps run on handsets and are scaled up to run on devices like tablets.
Myerson once said that "all of the apps we bring to end users should be available on all of our devices," which meets the spirit of his comments to Microsoft employees on Thursday.

Its starting.......MS I think is going to well yea. I can see them owning the tablet market and hybrid computer market with only Android being more prominent. Apple will still be up there but they will be number 3. Either way, competition is fun.

Yeah, I would think this should have been one, if not the highest priority to help win phones to gain traction. MS has great resources, but damn they can be slow..it should have been from the beginning since they share the same core...,but MS Is way too slow....

If this means cheaper apps for my tablet, I would warmly welcome it... Its kind of sad to see the same app priced at $2.99 on Android and iOS costing $4.99 or more on Windows RT or Windows 8

The best thing I did for myself is to accept android, iOS and Windows devices. And always buy me the thing that would give me the best value. Now that is Android, future maybe Windows but not now. I am also a MS Lync administrator so I am well aware of m$ strength in the enterprise.

Converging is always good. Let the WP ecosystem keep growing. I use a Lumia 520 as my secondary phone, while my primary daily driver is android. While WP is good enough it still miles away from being useful as my daily driver. They seriously need some awesome apps. They are mostly lacking into Music and Video players. I'm sure that if PowerAMP and MX player could be ported to WP, there would be a sure boost in sells.
