Thanks for listening.
I think you are right and I agree with you 100%. I do a lot of apps also that cannot be publicly shared whether for myself or for some customers (confidential government etc). Android is getting a lot of apps the other phones don't get since you can get at the hardware. Store apps in windows just cannot do things a full blown powerful app can do.
This being said, I like getting my apps from a known source so they are secure. I still don't like apps from windows store unless I know the author. Actually I don't have any use for store apps on my laptop but I do use apps on my windows phone. I do like android better since they have apps with no restrictions and can do things windows phone cannot do like finding cell towers and signal strength etc.
Bottom line is I am not against the store and apps but I want the power that Microsoft is investing in store apps such as native compile to come to the desktop. I don't need store app technology if Microsoft keeps the desktop in line with the new features in store apps. Whether they keep doing this is what worries me.
