Windows 10 Mobile users feel left out; 36,000 sign a petition demanding Pokemon Go for the platform
posted by Alan F. / Jul 11, 2016, 12:55 PM
At last count, more than 36,000 have 'signed' the petition, which includes a number of selling points that most likely won't persuade the powers-that-be at Niantic. Some tweets sent by Windows 10 Mobile users indicate that they have already left the platform for an Android or iOS device just so they can play Pokemon Go.
If you are a Window 10 Mobile user, it has to be hard to hear all of your friends talking Pokemon while you can only sit back and listen. If you want to do the democratic thing and use your voice to seek change, click on the sourcelink to add your name to the petition.

Why have a windows phone in the first place?? All should know already, if you want apps, games, and overall best experience get a Nexus 6p Or iPhone.

You do realize we used to live in a world with no apps, but real games. So why not have a 3ds and a Windows phone or like me 950xl and Nexus 6p. People forget freedom of choice and I for one love windows 10 so I know it's weakness so I adjust to using more than 1 OS it's like owning an Xbox and a ps4.

You are too attached to your gadgets. I have no problem buying things that offer me the best value without the emotional attachment. Besides i change my gadget very often. Give away those I no longer need.

Why not have a 3ds? Here's the problem: 1. The cost of a 3ds games are too expensive compared to what iOS and android app stores offers. 2. If the game cartridge is damage. You cannot play that game anymore. Unlike the android and iOS which you can save .ipa and .apk files on your computer or the online storage. 3. 3ds have no waterproof capabilities nor it's shockproof enough. Unlike android and iOS devices which have waterproof and shockproof cases. 4. Smartphones and tablets are now a trendy device. Meanwhile consoles are becoming as a third option devices. While laptops/desktops are 2nd options. 5. There are over millions of apps on both iOS and android compared to thousands or even hundred thousands. And you cannot play all of them on the latest 3ds if its unsupported. 6. Since Nintendo had released Pokemon go on both iOS and android. It had shown them how big the profit they would've gain. And even now, this article speaks as the reason for the downfall of the 3ds. 7. It's hard to find and repair a 3ds once it's broken. You have a choice whether to repair it or get a new one. 8. There are more online players using smartphones than on 3ds. So finding a party on 3ds is much harder than those who uses smartphones. 9. There are a lot of accessories offered on smartphones than on 3ds. Like the charging dock, Bluetooth speakers, and more. 10. It is easier to find games on smartphones than on 3ds which requires you to go and find the nearest 3ds game cartridge dealer. And if you cannot find the game you want, you have to find another dealer. And the other part about why won't you buy a windows phone? Here's the reason: 1. Lack of apps. As to what window 8 mobile did had. 2. Poor user interface and you can't even costumize it. 3. The continuum proposed by Windows isn't well known and would've encounter problems especially for a RISC chip. 4. Windows 10 capabilities have been shorten wherein you cannot play older games. And also left untested for the RISC chips. 5. Very expensive device. Almost the same as an iPhone but much worst. In the world of mobile devices. Only two are commonly known. While others are third or last options. Surely Windows isn't chosen as the first or second choice. 6. People would often choose android cause it's cheap. And would choose iOS because of simplicity and apps. What does Windows offer better than the android and iOS could've offer.

I could own a gremlin or pinto, but why? So I could be the freak on the road that everyone points at? BB/WP/Symbian users are so attention hungry. Look at me with this relic of the past! I'm so alternative!

Considering the post you just made, I'd say you are the one that's attention hungry. Why do YOU care what others choose to use? Is it your money being spent? How about YOU use what YOU like, and allow others to do the same WITHOUT your bias getting in the way.

18.000 to iOS, and 18.000 to Android. No chance for WP to survive. W10 is OK, but Surface phone should be a stellar.
