Disqus releases app exclusive to Windows Phone

Disqus, the company that provides commenting systems to a number of websites, has released an exclusive Windows Phone application today. Apparently the company has no plans on releasing Android or iOS apps at this stage, which is rare for a company making applications for smartphones and a fantastic sign for Microsoft's platform.

The app facilitates easy conversations in the comments sections of many websites that have implemented the plug-in, without having to actually visit the websites themselves. According to WPCentral, the in-house developed Disqus app has been developed by a big fan and early adopter of Windows Phone, which might explain why this app has appeared here first.

It looks like the app only supports Windows Phone 8 it supports both WP8 and Windows Phone 7.5 and 7.8, and comes with numerous features such as wide live tile support, lockscreen integration, support for all WP8 resolutions, and of course all the methods of commenting through Disqus that you like. If you have a Windows Phone and you'd like to grab this platform-exclusive application, head to the source link below.

This is exactly what developers are doing already.. Instead, they're coding for iOS and Android, and not for Windows Phone. Some people complain that Windows Phone doesn't have enough great apps, which can be true or false, depending on your taste in apps. The point is, the more great apps a platform has, the more people will use it. With that being said, Windows Phone needs more people working on it. There's no reason why they shouldn't.

Cant find it in the Dutch store it seems? Lumia 920 here.
Online gives me

Sorry, you can't get apps in this region. Please check the Store in your region

Would love it for Universe Today which uses disqus.

EDIT: nvm dutch online store seems to have it...weird.

haha spooky, click an app to install from online store and it starts doing it on the phone. nice feature though.

This app is surprisingly well designed... Also it works great! This is great news for WP. Lumia 920 owner here.

downloading to my lumia 920, while awesome this is windows phone exclusive I suspect they will be making android and ios versions down the road.

Interesting. Stupid, but interesting.
I wouldn't call it stupid. A lot of sites use disqus and its a pain to comment on them if they do not have their own app.

The app isn't stupid. The "no plans to release Android or iOS version" is stupid.

So finally this happens that an app on wp wont be on IOS and Android and its stupid? Yet WP8 has a ton of apps that those developers state wont have a wp8 version.

There are apps that only work on iOS and Android, but aren't available for Windows Phone. I wish this app would be available for iOS or Android, but this is a perfect example of how Windows Phone users get shunned by developers because they choose to code their apps for other platforms..

Some people complain that Windows Phone doesn't have enough apps. That's not Microsoft's fault though. That's the developer's fault for not choosing to code on Windows Phone.

Something that WP users are very familiar with....
Now people using other platforms know what it feels like..
