Microsoft to Kill Off Zune-Based Market, Mandates WP7.5
Apr 24, 2012, 5:57 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Microsoft has announced several changes headed to the Marketplace for Mobile. Starting today, Microsoft will disable the ability to search for and download apps through the PC-based Zune client. Instead, Windows Phone owners will need to browse for apps from the Marketplace on their device or from their PC's browser. Second, Microsoft suggests that all WP7 owners update to Windows Phone 7.5 Mango if they wish to maintain app compatibility moving forward. According to Microsoft, those handsets that aren't updated to WP7.5 won't be able to download/install apps from the Marketplace, nor rate them. Microsoft said it is making these changes so that the Marketplace can continue to grow and operate quickly and securely.
