Unlike Google or Apple, Microsoft has a poor policy of policing apps leaving up to consumers to report scams. Also my personal jab – unlike Google and Apple, Microsoft has a disproportionally low number of apps so if they remove all this scam software, they won’t be able to say “Our store has a million apps!” rather “We have only 10 apps”.

We’re encouraging clients to AVOID Microsoft’s App Store. As the article below illustrates, the store is confusing, loaded with scams, outright bad software or software that is otherwise free on the internet that one has to pay for in the store.

Microsoft is also being accused of not removing these scams fast enough from the store.
