Google will not make Windows apps

Speaking to V3, the firm’s product management director at Google Apps, Clay Bavor, said that due to what it sees as a lack of interest from its clients on the systems, it is holding back on any work at present.

“We have no plans to build out Windows apps. We are very careful about where we invest and will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8,” he said.

And the shots go back and forth.

    They are right. Windows 8 did not even ship on the majority of PC’s sold in its launch quarter. Only a tiny fraction of next year’s Windows PC’s will have touch. Even if you want to make a Windows app, you are better to make an XP app that runs on all Windows systems.
