Hello Jose,

Thank you for opening this thread. Unfortunately, we do not currently support the Windows app at this time. I've marked this thread as an "Idea" as we routinely review these when planning new site features.

Hi Trevor, thanks for the reply. Your answer brings nothing new, nor justification for what they have done. Why leave Windows and continue to support Kindle, for example? Have you noticed the millions of users left without the app? You know how easy it is to port the Android or IOs app ró Windows, through a universal app? Think about it.. think about lhe millions of Mobile défices (PC, Tablets and smartphones) involved. Greetings.

If windows phone users can access the mobile site, then why not pull the iOs and Android app, too? And apart from that, what's point in withdrawing an app? You people could have just left the very basic IMDB app instead of deleting it.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled App Discontinuation for Windows Mobile 10 and Windows Phone.

Is it possible to get an exact answer, without "geting away from the issue", explaining why Windows Phone (now Windows Mobile 10), has been discontinued??
I know that we can use the mobile version of IMDB.
But... why IMDB does not support anymore Windows Devices??
Thanks in advance.

Exactly! But it feels like everyone has some grudge with Windows Phone.
