In a rather unusual - and perhaps illuminating - series of tweets, Supporting Computer Inc, the developers behind the popular Fhotoroom tool have indicated that development on a Windows 10 Mobile app was stopped because Microsoft "hasn't paid...[them]...in five months". We have tried to stay silent but the simple reason there is no #W10M app for #fhotoroom is because @Microsoft has not paid us for 5 months. — Fhotoroom (@Fhotoroom) December 8, 2015
While we know that Microsoft regularly provides incentives to different developers for bringing its platform up to speed , it isn't entirely clear if the payments in questions are an example of such incentives or simply earnings from the Windows Store . What we do know is that Microsoft has allegedly failed to pay their dues to the developers and, despite repeated requests, has not rectified the problem. When you get dozens of emails everyday for W10M issues, it finally seemed the only way to communicate.
