You won’t find Windows Mobile Software for Some Popular Apps
Many popular apps that you might want to use on a windows mobile device just are not available for this platform either because the developer discontinued them or, as is the case with many newer services, the developers of these services never created a version of their software to run on Windows Mobile devices.
