7-Eleven drops Windows Phone support

After having launched a dedicated Windows Phone app complete with coupons, convenient store chain 7-Eleven has dropped support for the beloved platform. The company did not give any reason why it had made this decision when a reader emailed asking about why he is not getting any more coupons.

"Unfortunately, we have decided to end our support for the Windows version of our mobile app at this time," 7-Eleven Social Innovation Manager Ana Santellana told our reader in an email response. "We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

Our reader said that he noticed that the app was not displaying coupons anymore and that he was having difficulties linking the app to Foursquare for check-in though Twitter and Facebook integration continued to work.

Is the 7-Eleven app one that you use regularly? Are you sad to see this Windows Phone 8 app dropped?

Thanks Todd for the tip.
