Hilton HHonors Windows Phone app to say 'Goodbye' soon
The Hilton HHonors Windows Phone app, which offered users travel planning features and special access for HHonors members, is slated to be retired in the near future.
The Windows Store page for the app (opens in new tab) states:
The company announced the retirement of the Windows tablet version of the Hilton HHonors app earlier this year. There's no specific information on when the Windows Phone version will be shut down.
Thanks to Paul for the tip!

Now, that doesn't mean that the end is most definitely near, or near at all. Just that it is in a current state of dying, or to sugar coat it, "retrenchment". MS can revive it, though. The reality is that any fan who decides to stick it out for the long haul will be doing just that.... It's gonna be a long, long, long, 2017..... The only significant amount of light could only come from a Surface Phone announcement. Let's pray we find out something soon.
Worth mentioning,,,, there is a chance we may get a universal app in place of any app that "temporarily" leaves the store.
Regarding Xbox Central, which it feels like nowadays,, Xbox Central reports on MS related news... The world of WM is tiny relative to the world of pretty much everything in the world.. Lol. The amount of news reflects accordingly. The truth is that MS doesn't care about Mobile as much a Apple, and Google. They care, but just not as much.
Please pray for us. Please pray for us, man. Enjoy your new device; I'm sure more are to follow. But, not me just yet. If no Surface Phone is reveled by late October 2017, I'm out. Reasonable?
I hope MS, and Jason, prove me wrong, and soon.
I bet y'all wish WC, Fans, and the general media, bitched about marketing as much as I did.. But, no... Sad.
And you can't say its not a loss because of the website is available. Then there's no point of any app on any platform.

Is not good for all of us as developers look to us to set the example
See what I did there.
Only and only bad news it seems to me to re-live the death of os/2 :-(
Funny thing, I was proud/happy there was a HHonors app, for some reason, but didn't really use it.
I think I have many apps installed that I don't use regularly. I guess I have them installed, so that if I ever want to use them I could. Too bad there isn't an instant install feature for those apps so I could clean up my phone memory.
Clearly Satya has no long term vision. The future is mobile.
Yes, I'm sticking with Windows phone for as long as it makes sense for ME, too.
I don't need any apps, i just want OS.
