HERE maps to ditch Windows Phone

By

The rather shabby Windows Mobile app ecosystem is about to get even lonelier with long time mapping solution HERE has announced its plans to quit developing apps for Windows.

According to a blog post from the HERE maps team, they would no longer be developing new versions of the app for the Windows, and would be removing the app from the Windows Store as from March 29 2016. And the app would stop running on Windows 10 devices after June 30 2016.

However it's all doom and bloom as the Windows Map app uses data from HERE and makes for a solid replacement for the HERE maps app. For Windows Phone 8 users, the HERE maps would continue to work as usual for the life of the device, although no new updates will be pushed to the device.
