Kayak drops support for its Windows Phone travel planning app

If you were a fan of Kayak's mobile app for Windows Phone, it looks as though your days with the app are limited. According to a tip we've received, Kayak is no longer supporting its Windows Phone app.

The news comes via a reader who received the following response from a Kayak support representative when inquiring about an issue with the app:

Thank you for the clarification. Our Mobile Team is no longer supporting this app, so I'm afraid I will not be able to trouble shoot with you.You may want to consider visiting the mobile optimized version of KAYAK from your phone's internet browser (www.KAYAK.com).

Interestingly, the app doesn't currently show up when doing a Store search on Windows 10 Mobile. And while the app does appear when searching from a Windows Phone 8.1 device, the listing indicates it is no longer available for download. The app also still shows up in the Store via a direct link on the web.

If you already have the app installed, it does appear to still be at least functional. It's not clear if Kayak will shut down the app entirely in the future, or whether a replacement may eventually make an appearance.

Have you recently had any trouble with the Kayak app on your Windows Phone? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks for the tip, Mark!
