Netflix has disappeared after failing to work properly on Windows 10 [Update: It's back!]

Update: And it's back!

Original story: Netflix is no longer available on the Windows Store, for both PC and mobile owners. It comes at a time when subscribers to the service have been frustrated with the lack of updates to address reported issues. We're not entirely sure what's going on at Netflix HQ, but it gives us no pleasure to confirm that their official offering has indeed been pulled from the store.

Interestingly, we last looked at the Netflix app when it received an update earlier this month to add a new color to the Windows Phone 8.1 Live Tile and apply some fixes. It could be that a serious issue was discovered but we'll have to hold out and see. For now, best not to delete it if you do have it.

Thanks Jason F. for the tip!

  • DAMN... Its one reason why I prefer Netflix over other offers in Australia such as Presto or Stan. Hope they get this fixed and back on the store.
  • I'm pretty confident this will be back, their UWP app is pretty good. Better than the Xbox One App
  • Do they have a UWP ?
  • So the app this article refers to in the 2nd sentence isn't their UWP app? Where can one get hold of their UWP app? TY.
  • UWP is desktop-only at the moment. The mobile one is the 8.1 version. According to the article, that's the one that has been pulled, the UWP *should* still be available.
  • So, let me get this straight... the Universal Windows App works only the the desktop? In what sense is the word 'universal' being used here?
  • All Windows 10 store apps (excluding Windows 8/8.1 apps that still work on W10) are build on the UWP APIs. Universal doesn't mean it runs everywhere, it's just a platform/set of APIs.
  • And making it run on different sizes takes approx 2 minutes for some scaled icons and navbar-positions. Too much for a small company like Netflix.
  • In the only way it can be used. UWP is a set of API from Microsoft to build apps that CAN run everywhere with almost no effort. Then you can publish your app for any windows device but YOU DON'T HAVE TO.
  • This. Exactly. The amount of times this has to be explained in these comments is surprising.
  • That should be a hint to MS that the universal moniker is confusing. As a developer, you have the option of building universal windows 8 pc/mobile apps or universal windows 10 apps via UWP. But in both cases, it's not really universal in the sense that you code once and it runs everywhere. It doesn't. So maybe they should rename it from universal to shared windows platform. Or core...
  • The thing is though - to any developer it's not hard to understand UWP apps or how they are different to 8.1 RT Universal apps. Create a UWP app and you can run it right away on your Phone, PC or Xbox (Developer mode needs to be turned on on the Xbox) - The app can all sit in a single project. 8.1 WinRT Universal apps were a step in the right direction, but it really just consolidated a number of APIs like storage - You could always build Windows 8 apps and share a lot of code, even before 8.1 but injecting your dependencies for Storage etc.
  • Or maybe it does make sense since it can be universal, but we shouldn't call them Universal when only running on a specific device. It would be sufficient to say it's a W10 app. I mean can you develop an app for W10 that is not built upon the UWP APIs?
  • You can always call them "Windows 10 Store Apps" which means any Windows 10 (UWP) app that's in the official store.
  • I think it's a mistake to claim platform that's it's built on. Back in windows 8, you had apps that ran windows 8 pc and apps that ran windows phone 8/8.1. That's how we refered to them. We didnt say, it's a "WinRT PC" or "WinRT Phone" app. So why do we start now? We should just say, its for W10 Pc or W10 Mobile (W10 and W10M) Or say it's a Windows 10 store app to distinguish it from the classic Windows Forms apps that will run on everything from Win 7 to Win 10. Iunno, they have too many damn frameworks now lol.
  • Like repacked x86 'apps', so universal in deed.
  • Then people wouldn't know if it is on mobile too if you say W10 and not W10M. The point is you can call it as you want...the whole UWP will either suceed and then no publisher will restrict his apps or will fail and then nobody will care how you call em.
  • This. People need to stop calling it effing universal when it runs on only one system. Don't care about "explanations"; don't call them that. This is coming from a developer
  • The only reason we have the problem is that this community combines different types of person - Developers and "Normal" people with an interest in technology (but who aren't deeply technical), and even some average joes all frequent the site and comments section. In the real world there's no issue, because Developers in a working environment know what each other are talking about, the average Joe isn't bothered about the semantics - If it runs on their phone it's just an app on their phone, if it runs on their PC it runs on their PC, how much of that code is shared they don't really think about. It's all semantics and we're all wasting time talking about it here.
  • It's all semantics and we're all wasting time talking about it here.
    Agreed, Dan, silly debate all-up. Did you see this post of mine, got a final ~1min? http://www.windowscentral.com/netflix-has-disappeared-after-failing-work... Thanks again & BR.
  • KillaRizzay, in the UWP case it is truly Universal. You code once and it runs everywhere, you have to take actions to NOT make it run everywhere when you publish it to the store. 
  • It's universal on paper, but in reality, you have to write extra code for each platform, to take advantage of each devices hardware (for example a surface/pc and xbox probably wont have GPS or Accelorometer sensors, while a phone and hololense does). But the biggest culpret for additional code is writing user interfaces (UI)s for each platform; a phone is typically portrait orientation, while an xbox is always landscape. It's like writing a responsive website; yes, it runs everywhere by default, but that's not acceptable to anyone. Could you imagine trying to navigate an app primarily designed for a small 5" portrait phone screen, but on your 50" landscape tv via your xbox?? The experience is NOT going to translate well 'out of the box' so, extra code has to be written. Then there's also performance optimization code; a desktop UWP app my not be that concerned with performance for example, but if you're targeting a phone or hololense with minimal horsepower and ram, you need to be more mindful of performance. The list kind of goes on and on.
     
  • You have to be mindful on PC too - Some of us might have 16+GB of RAM but others are running an Atom w/ 2GB RAM - This aspect hasn't changed with UWP
  • You can but you dont have to.
  • It wouldn't be confusing if MS had called it something more representitive of what the UWP platform actually is.
  • That is not really true.  It has a lot to do with apps being able to "run anywhere"  but is just as much that MS offers the same background platform on all Windows powered devices: One store, one billing process, one set of advertising APIs, etc.  One major obstacle is that Windows runs on multiple processor architectures, and many apps are designed to run only on one.  Most AAA games are that way, for example.  That said, by using various "bridges" many apps can be made cross-platform fairly easily.
  • Why would Netflix choose to not make the app available on all devices and make another app for mobile?
  • Think of it this way. There's old silverlight apps and there's UWA. You can run both of them on windows, but the UWA have more features, features other than being 'Universal' that the older 8.1 apps didn't. Netflix's desktop app is a UWP app, although it is not universal it has other features that UWP offers.  At least that's what I think it is.
  • Hmm, been looking much more closely at the "desktop UWP app", seems very basic; Dan H seemed to be of the impression that it's "much better" than the WP8x based Mobile app?
  • I mean the desktop UWP app is much better than the Xbox app (Which is very clunky like the Netflix app on Roku and Smart TVs etc.)
  • Geezus, the Xbox app must be horrid... :( How does the Desktop UWP app compare to the Mobile (WP8x based) version, IYO? If it's roughly as good or better, then hopefully they make it Mobile ASAP.
  • Personally prefer the mobile (WP8.1 app) over the UWP PC Netflix app, but mainly because of how they chose to layout the titles with scroll buttons at either side - Bad UX as the buttons for scrolling are so far away. If they really want to keep the rows of titles they'd be better having a "Show all" above each row similar to how MS do it for "Most Popular" and "Picks for you" in the store
  • Do you think they're about to ditch the WP8x based one; And use the Desktop UWP app as the basis for a new Mobile app? How far away do you reckon? -IK you can't ans. that but WTH! :-P
  • Dan, got ~5 more mins? TY & BR! http://www.windowscentral.com/netflix-has-disappeared-after-failing-work...
  • Dan, got ~5 more mins? TY & BR! http://www.windowscentral.com/netflix-has-disappeared-after-failing-work...
    Sigh, I guess not...
  • I find the xbox app really good, at least for the sit-back way that its supposed to be used.
  • It's back.
  • The Xbox one app is horrible. They really need to work on it.
  • Disagree. Xbox One app works reliably. UWP app is buggy junk.
  • I have reported a few problems myself. The desktop version was not acting as good as the mobile version. Talked with support about it.
  • They need to update this article before everyone has a heart attack. Netflix is back on the store.
  • This can't be happening. I was hoping for a new UWP app but this is really dissapointing. What the f**** are you doing Microsoft ?!
  • You mean, What the f#ck are you doing Netflix!? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Rovio, Niantic, Supercell, Snapchat and all other developers that are ignoring Microsofts ecosistem... they all must be insane, right?!
  • Or you just admit you also know it's Netflix's part that is failing. Those other companies are more focussed on small devices. Even so..right.
  • .. Amazon, CNN, Google..
  • Rovio is there with all Angry Birds editions... Snapchat is currently developing an app and, Amazon is like Netflix, doing a big update to their app.
  • Where can I download Angry Birds 2 and Angry Birds Action?
  • You have Angry Birds, Rio, Star Wars and Star Wars 2, Epic, Stella, Go!, Space, Seasons but also BadPiggies on Windows Store Belgium... I think that even if we don't have one or two of them, there are already a lot...
  • Angry Birds Epic which is littery the only mobile game i care for has to get an update from August 2014
  • As far as I heard, Rovio is pulling the plug on Windows mobile - according to that, at least no new games will hit the platform. And that Snapchat is developing an app was a hoax. And concerning Amazon: That's just your guess. It hasn't been anounced anywhere, that Amazon is developing an UWP.
  • It was reported that Rovio are pulling the plug on all platforms other than iOS and Android (Inc. consoles, handhelds etc.) - Windows 10 PC and Windows 10 Mobile just happen to be in that list
  • They put the plug but all the apps are still there on the Store so, it isn't totally the case ^^
  • Don't worry, we'll have a third-party NutFrix app in a year or so, which will go nicely with the PoqueMan Go app we get the same week.  They'll both cost $1.99 and crash regularly, but we'll have alternatives!
  • We weren't worried and got the regular Netflix app back in a day or so.  
  • It's back in the store.
  • This isn't MS' fault. Re-read the article please.
  • Microsoft has done nothing to engage a long and stable relationship with top 10 developers. These days its all about apps and games. Out lives are more than just "productivity". Even business people like to play, have fun, watch a movie and so on. 
  • Are you a "top 10 developer"? If not how do you know this? What would you expect Microsoft to do? Build the platform around these developers? Give them money? What would engage them?
  • All developers in the world received 1 free cookie from Microsoft to sweeten the deal and I tell you, it was delicious. Other than them already making the BEST developer tools in the world, the best language and the best platform and in cases in the past even offering cash for apps, there's not a lot else they can do. Xamarin is the smartest choice for developers on any platform and Microsoft making it free was even sweeter than those cookies.
  • I guess we are still paying their mistake of entering too late the smartphone market. The question is how many years will it take to rectify this?
  • Microsoft needs to get the OEMs involved first. They are not interested in restricted OS.
  • When the new Netflix app launched Microsoft made a big deal of it on their blog etc. On top of some of/THE best dev environment and tools they do a lot.
  • When it comes to mobile, everything is Microsof's fault.
  • Yes it is.  MS have devastated the Windows Mobile base with their absolutely insane Windows Mobile development process. Build a great platform through WM v. 6 and utterly abandon it in v. 7. Develop an innovative and exciting new mobile interface to accompany v. 7, but leave it technologically years behind the competition. Sacrifice many of the critical innovations that made v. 7 so elegant, abandon all older devices, and force people to buy new hardware to run the new v. 8.  Fail to iterate on v. 8 at any meaningful pace while your competitors copy and improve upon your innovative esthetic.  After making nearly no progress in technology for 2+ years, retool again on v. 10 (don't ask me why MS can't count). Release v. 10 with every drop of the elegance and genuinely useful innovation that were present in v. 7 meticulously stripped out of the OS.  Abandon nearly all of your existing v. 8 users' hardware.  Release a whole new application platform that requires complete retooling of existing apps, at the same time as your user market share has dropped below 1%. If MS had simply taken what they had in WP7 and kept building, rather than starting over, and then starting over again, they would have likely continued to make slow and steady progress in mobile.  As it stands, they sit atop a crumbling PC empire, a utterly defeated home console business, and a destitute mobile OS.  And it was entirely there fault.  I have never seen a large company execute a poorly over such a long time as MS.  Nadella has been nothing short of a disaster for MS in the consumer space.  Outside of the enterprise (where Amazon has seen to it that their future is far from certain) MS is a zombie.
  • This is why I thought that the book from Nadella was about Windows for phones... Hit refresh
  • Blah blah blah... Bullsh*t :D What you wrote, is bleeding from so many wounds, that I'm too lazy to correct all the mistakes you made. Even reading your whole comment was a waste of time...
  • For a software company, MS needs to get their sh*t together. BIG TIME!
     
  • I agree on the WP7 part or at least kept building off of WP8. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android (V10 or Nexus 5X)
  • It's back.
  • What the *** is wrong with these people. Windows 10 is in over 350M devices already and the number is rising as we speak. There are no alternatives as good as windows10. This means customers that are willing to pay..
  • I see your point, but try to break the 350MM down into desktop and mobile. Majority of those will be desktops where you may as well use web browser over a dedicated app, so this argument is not fully substantiated. You may be talking perhaps tens of millions for W10M, compared to hundreds of millions or over a billion for Android and iOS
  • I wonder why Google making Play Store available for Chrome OS when web browser is better than apps? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I'm superoversimplifying it, and my opinion is not the only reason why they are doing it, but in a nutshell...... to claim the crown from Windows/Office. Think about millions of little kids who use Chromebooks, Google Docs, Google Drive, etc... for years in K-5 grades. Do you think they'd switch to Windows once they would be old enough, to have parents buy them their own device, mobile or desktop? Getting a foothold into school system is breeding grounds for your up and coming "customers to be"... similar logic goes to enterprise.
       
  • So millions of paying customers isn't profitable because there are MORE millions on other platforms??  I'm fairly certain the ROI breaking point for paying Netflix customers is easily satisfied by the number on Windows mobile.
  • Ask yourself.
    If you owned a company, had to develop an app, and its budgeted cost to market was $10MM would you build it on a platform smaller than 50MM users? would you do it on platforms bigger than a billion users? Of course they can hire more developers, of course they can build the app, of course they'd make profit on it. The issue lies with them having bigger ROI on the dominant platforms, so if you willingly choose to dedicate resources to segments with smaller ROI, you are in fact inflicting operating loss on yourself by willingly not realizing the revenue you may have had on the others. I've way oversimplified it, but in short, that is the nut the devs need to crack. If I was Hastings and had shareholders and a board to be accountable to, I woudln't act differently. Sadly.  On the plus side...
    W10 is exploding, has more than 1/3 a billion machines now, but mobile is a small fraction of it yet. Once there is new hardware, better mobile experience in 2017 or 2018, the devs will be back... As a hardcore Apple fan of many years, I'm totally astounded by the speed with which MSFT has been improving W10 and delivering builds. They literally started from the ground up with W10 and what took Apple and Google nearly 9 years (mobile OS), MSFT did in 3.
    Yes they are still behind, yes they have less apps, and their mobile market share is abysmal, but their momentum is  very strong. We are simply goting through a hard phase of their rebirth and it's difficult to not lose patience... but they'll deliver
  • I do appreciate a thoughtful point of view, which is uncommon around here.   I think the equation starts off flawed, however. There is no way any of these apps costs $10 million.  We are talking about  front end that hooks into a backend that has already been completed.  I believe the average budget for such things is less than $100K.   I also think it's too simple to say that a smaller userbase, by definition, means that it is a poor decision to invest in those users. Did Bank of America, American Express, Uber, etc, all make bad decisions for their investors? Are people screaming for those boards to be replaced.  The fact is that an app for for our beloved platform costs a bank probably less than placing a few ATMs around and serves more of it's customers.  Netflix can affordably extend their reach (adding goodwill and stickiness) to customers like me. You're also asserting opportunity costs where I'm not sure they exist. If you have apps for iDroid, and you build one for Windows, you are not reducing the revenue or increasing the investment in the other apps.  You are clearly adding customers, probably more than a more expensive promotion.  Lyft, for example, sends me promotions that would cost them hundreds of dollar just to add me as a customer.  They could spend <$100K and have a new pool of potentially millions.   I bet they'd freak out if they lost, say 5 million customers over the next 6 months.  Why wouldn't they be ecstatic to gain that many?
  • Sorry, I should have mentioned that the 10MM was an example I threw out there, not based on reality. My own company (a major one) refused to implement certain app and when I asked the PM  who worked on it, the primary decision reason was market share of the installed user base on WP and mismatch between our customer footprint and WP footprint. It was not the only decisioning factor, but it was the primary reason. These teams are all unde budget constraints and deadlines, jsut like the rest of us. If we knew precisely what the geographical and demographic distributions were of Netflix vs W10M in the markets Netflix was interested in, both me and you would get the answers. They'd jump right out at us. The Lyft example you used is interesting, though. I too get their $50 promo coupon offers on the way to work and always decline. I guess they trust in their low customer churn enough to know that they will keep you as a customer and get their $$$ back many times over. There is a major difference. You either ride Lyft or you don't. With Netflix on W10M, you still have the option to use their web experience without the app, which takes the edge off the urgency to have an app. It's not all or nothing situation Lyft is facing. Thanks for the follow up, though. Really appreciate your point of view!
  • No alternatives as good as Windows 10? That's your opinion. Windilitows 7 was better, in my opinion. There was a consistency of design that is lacking in Windows 10. For speed and stability, give me OSX or UBUNTU. But please, take Windows 10 away from me. No, give me the satisfaction of wiping my hard system drive, and starting with a new OS...  
  • you are hilarious.  OSX or any Linux is a pile of trash compared to Windows 10.  Fact.  End.
  • OSX being stable is a straight up myth. Ive had more OS crashes and computer face screens of death than I can count on a mac.
  • Sorry to hear your Mac is acting up. I'm running El Capitan on my Mac and have had no issues so far, except one, which ended up being a faulty RAM. El Cap is a really good release, IMO, in terms of stability. Have you booted into recovery and ran a hardware test? That's how I found that I bought RAM chips with lots of faulty blocks, which kept causing constant reboots and kernel panics. Also running W10 Fast Ring on my laptop and having no issues either. Both W10 and Mac have their merits and I gladly use them both.
  • Why do you have to ask to install a new OS... just do it. Not to bright are you... OK if you want OSX you should get a Mac, Hackintosh works but not as smooth... but if you have a PC, install UBUNTU... then ... leave...
  • Where did I ask to install a new OS? to, too, two... homonyms, but not synonyms.
  • huh? Windows 10 is a beast. I work with OSX, XP, Win7 and have win10 at home and on my tablet and win10 beats all the others in pretty much ever respect.
  • Desktop PCs don't count.  They just don't.  Netlix, and just about everything else works great in a browser -- even with touch.  There is no need for apps.
  • It's changing. Developers can do much more with dedicated apps than websites. And it just feels better overall :D Personally, I use dedicated apps for everything I can, and rarely open any browser. And I came from Win 7, where websites in the browser were the only way to make those things work :D
  • Except this is 100% wrong.  The Web has progressed into such a sophisticated platform that there is almost nothing that can't be done just as well in a browser as in an app.  And competition among browser makers is so fierce that the Web, as an application environment, has much better tools available than any alternative platform.
  • Than why are so many developers building ugly, slow and sluggish websites? :D If the web would be such an amazing platform, websites should be perfect (or at least most of them). But they're not...
  • Do you mean windows central type websites? Adding so many ads and trackers that site is totally unusable?
  • Yeah, kinda. That's why I only read WC articles in the app, among many other reasons.
  • Tech blogs are different animals, I think there is a rule for them that websites must suck.
  • Try Firefox with Addblock.  You'll love the Web again.
  • No... Firefox is almost as ****** as chrome...
  • If you think the Web sucks, and you use IE/dge, we already know what the problem is.
  • No. It's just better since I use Edge (but still sucks). Never loved IE to be honest, it was a POS :D
  • Truth. With HTML5 the web is essentially an application platform.
  • Try using web version of Instagram. Then try post a picture if you can. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • No, you're the one in the wrong.  I am a software engineer.  Its FAR easier to develop desktop or rich client applications (like app store apps).  Every "advancement" in web applications development is yet another band-aid to try and cover the fact that the web was never intended to be an application platform.  The only reason the web ever became popular for application development was that it was easier to deliver the application to the end users; which the various app stores have now replicated. 
  • You are partially right, but apps are not where mobile is headed. It is where mobile has been. MSFT, FB, GOOGLE know it and AAPL is as secretive as ever, so hard to tell what they are up to. Think about your phone today - you download dozens of apps, you spend lot of time searching for the right one, then you end up using it twice a year, then you delete it when your phone runs out of space. In reality, most of us use less than dozen apps every day, yet there are millions in the store. App model is flawed, it's been flawed since day one, but it was better than web back then. Where mobile is headed - as x I'm tc pointed out - is back to the web. Only, it will be a different web. The web you know was a browser you used to view content. The "new" web will make it feel like there is no browser, with ful bleed enge to edge experience, so instead of you downloading the app, it will be a web app, running full screen, hosted on the server and you viewing it in a web browser, without even knowing it, while the server does all teh heavy lifting for you, not your phone. That is where we are headed and that's why I'm not worried about MSFT's app gap as much anymore. They know that the app era is about to yield to something else. Chat bots are only one aspect of the sea of possibilities with web apps.
     
  • It's back in the store.
  • Have you thought that it could be a Framework issue? Not a OS issue, but a .Net Framework issue. For me is a very good reason for the Apps to crash constantly on Windows 10 [write down here your favorite flavor].
  • I have just been on the Netflix site and it says they are currently having issues streaming on apple, android, and other devices and they are working to resolve issues. So hopefully it is not to do with Windows 10
  • I have no issues streaming,... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Me neither. Never have. And on desktop I prefer browser anyway since it has double click for full screen and skipping with arrow keys
  • I have had Netflix problems for months.  Either when it is loading it gets stuck at 25% or when I am watching a series, after 2 episodes it pops up "Cannot play this at this time" in which case you can reload it.  For months, on my Xbox One anyhow.
  • I have similar problems with my SmartTV, but not with my W10, W8.1 devices or PS4.
  • Hope the pull out would mean that we will have a better Netflix app and a UWP one.
  • They already have one
  • But not on mobile. Was pertaining to a true UWP app - all screen sizes.
  • Yep but at least the old app was working fine
  • And let's not forget it, an UWP app would also work in Continuum.
  • I sent a tweet to Nexflix to explain what's going on...... Hope for an answer.
  • Shouldn't that be "sent" ?
  • O, okay...
  • Shouldn't that be 'Oh'??!! /s I'll never understand why people feel the need to criticize and/or correct grammar on sites where the user base is known to be global.
    Edit: After reading responses below, I understand for those who are truly trying to help.
  • He can use "send" it's called freedom of speech \_('_')_/
  • I am Dutch, so 'send' or 'sent' mistakes can happen.
  • I agree totally
  • And he has also the right to be corrected, so that he can avoid the mistake in the future... Nobody is shooting anybody... By the way, freedom of speech is a completely different thing...
  • I used to be absent from many classrooms, maybe. I missed a philosophy class!
  • I suspect you have missed more than just a philosophy class
  • You probably right, i guess I'm. Not the best judge on this matter!
  • Nor am I, but I am sure we can agree that when ones make a grammar mistake another should be allowed to correct withouth being judged. I see it happening a lot and I truly can't see what's wrong with pointing out mistakes in a constructive way
  • I guess you're right, i was trying. To be funny, but i failed, i better go looking for some POKÉMON!
  • I agree. No problem here. If someone wants to correct me, thats fine.
  • i spoke to netflix support, they are aware and have raised the issue with microsoft you can still down the app if you go to https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co...
  • Somebody bump this post.  Works on PC and Mobile.
  • I don't really use Netflix so at the moment I'm not that bothered, but I do have Flixter, the only issue is that the full service is not available outside the USA, why?
  • They could surprise us and launch the Windows 10 Mobile app :D Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I thought it was UWP already. Wasn't it one of the first to have continuum support?
  • UWP doesn't automatically mean mobile.
  • Yes true but I mentioned continuum which is.
  • I dont think theyre leaving. I think its just more of a security reason. If I remember correctly, Netflix is one of the companies that has some partnership with MS.
  • Their CEO sat on MS board (Reed Hastings).
  • Works fine for me. Duh, nm it was through my PlayStation. Checked my phone works fine on the droid and my pc with w10.
  • Dammit and just when I signed up to it again. Hope its not too serious.
  • It is not the build. I am on the latest Fast track and watch on PC and my 950. Finished an episode just this morning and signed in just now to test. No problem. I have noticed despite a nice looking update on Xbox 360, it freezes.
  • I just checked: the app works on my Lumia 950XL, but crashes on my Surface Pro... I assume that the app on my Xbox One still works.
  • Just saying can't blame the OS update. This is far more complicated than "Microsoft broke this,"though it has happened before (Tweetium)
  • How hard is to make W10 app?!? I'm not developer nor I don't have any knowledge in programming but is seems that it's nearly impossible! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I really don't like Windows 10's UX. And I'm still in development of desktop apps. UWP never attracted me that much. But it's nice to have. It's not that hard, not that easy. You can make a basic app with html and JavaScript easily in UWP. But for feature rich apps you need to work/know more. Well, I never dived into UWP API/app making. So I don't know more about it. As far as I know is all about Windows 8's API. But still Desktop is my preference. [ I'm not a native English speaker, Sorry]
