Windows Phone has had difficulty drawing the same level of attention that app developers lavish on Android and iOS and now Apple has ensured that its total app store count has been reduced by one. AppleInsider reports that travel navigation app HopStop dropped support for Windows Phone over the weekend, just days after being acquired by Apple to help bolster its iOS Maps application. AppleInsider also speculates that Apple hasn’t yet stopped HopStop’s support for Android because “it may be getting valuable feedback and usage data across that platforms’ much larger installed base,” although it expects Apple will pull support for Android at some point.
