I just used the old App on both of my wp8.1 and w10m L640 and they're both working...!
Update: Not yet!... Not UWP App... Thank you any ways from our 95% PC's market share and 1% mobile market share community.
And in reference to the Hamburger remark, I agree. I know there is a lot of negativity regarding it(perhaps because of one handed limitations), but I actually like its presence too.
iOS has even better support because Apple has be able to upgrade multiple device generations. There is lagginess on demanding apps with older devices, but again these are mostly on intensive apps like higher end games.
Wouldn't it be smarter to still support older devices with a limit feature set? Some ppl may say that holds the platform back, but there will always be features that can't be on every phone e.g. Continuum and Windows Hello.
Heck, I imagine ppl would be angry at Apple if they said to customers, "Sorry ppl, your old device doesn't have force touch so no iOS 9 for you".
I find that MS makes some weird decisions sometimes like phone features disabled because your region doesn't have Cortana support. Another is the require camera button until late into WP8.1. I know MS meant well, but it would have been smarter for their phones to have the button as an optional feature as a showcase to OEMs like the Surface line. That way more OEMs would have been more likely to give WP a try in the early days as they wouldn't need to redesign their phones from Android template.
No Windows Hello.
