Earlier this month I changed banks to TSB in the UK. For a number of years it had a reasonable Windows 10 Mobile app which, although it was a wrapper for the website, actually worked pretty well when I tested it a few months ago.
The day I changed I discovered that TSB had dropped Windows 10 Mobile that very week and only Android/IOS was left.
Now Barclays, one of Britain’s largest banks, is dropping Windows 10 Mobile support.
Pretty much the only banks left are RBS / NatWest. To be fair they seem to be actively supporting Windows 10 Mobile.
This was a marketin the UK that had 10% sales until the Nadella “memo of Windowsphone death”. Now it’s heading for the fractions of 1% like the US market. Completely unsustainable.

<p>If that’s the case, why doesn’t MS just do the right thing and officially announce the end of WP? No point in stringing users along.</p>
