Windows Phone / 8: No Google Apps for you my friend.

Yes! You’ve read it right. Google ain’t making any apps for Windows Phones. Based from the article that I have read here, Google won’t serve the Windows market for now. Their reason? This.

We have no plans to build out Windows apps. We are very careful about where we invest and will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8.

So if you’re an avid user of Google Apps – Drive, Maps, Plus, Mail and others, you’re out of luck. However, you can try other alternatives like Nokia Maps – now rebranded as Here and Windows Phone / OS bundle for messaging, mail, calendar, people and photos. They work great on Google mail accounts (for email) and Google calendar (for calendar). Of course if you want cloud syncing, you can use Dropbox or Microsoft’s Skydrive.

The world is not limited to Google.  You can always find alternatives all over the internet.  All you have to do is well, search.
