Re: Still missing something that one more thing
@yalanand,

Agreed, but I guess that marketing/business strategy can be challenged,

If the smartphone market is dominated by Android and iOS, with Microsoft being a far third, would you want to have consumers try out your apps, so that when the day comes that they want to consider a phone upgrade, that process will be seamless (vs having to compromise)?

What does the community think?

Re: cross platform
Yes I fully agree - for app, the vendor needs to make it really application level stuff instead of being sticky to certain platform. Furthermore, it should provide the consistent behavior/functionality across different platforms.

Re: cross platform
If Google does not work on providing cross platform app they will learn the lesson in the near future.

@shakeeb, I agree with you. I think Google should seriously think about providing cross platform app else it might bring down the popularity of such apps.

Re: Still missing something that one more thing
I think the reason why MS might not have Google Drive as part of its app store is because they want to promote One Drive and they want it to become widespread. 

@tzubair, I totally agree with your opinion. I dont think MS would want to promote Google drive products when they have their own products which are competing against Google.

Re: cross platform
I wonder if Google wants to fall on the same trap that Microsoft did few year back. If Google does not work on providing cross platform app they will learn the lesson in the near future.

Re: cross platform
@tzubair- Do you mean to say Microsoft has learned it lesson from the past?

Re: Still missing something that one more thing
@tzubair- Yes but why is Google not trying to promote their Google Drive on Microsoft devices?

Re: Still missing something that one more thing
@stotheco – Yes Google seem to have been withdrawing some of their apps from other OS. Sometime back Google withdrew Google Maps from Blackberry. I think many users have already felt this.

Re: Competition
@H@mmy – yes very soon we will see a price drop as a result of completion. At least you will get more space for what you pay.

Re: Still missing something that one more thing
@mejiac – It's always good to have the apps your used to whenever you get a new device, but seems it doesn't happen always.

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
