Popular Windows app Fhotoroom stops development because Microsoft 'hasn't paid' them

In a rather unusual - and perhaps illuminating - series of tweets, Supporting Computer Inc, the developers behind the popular Fhotoroom tool have indicated that development on a Windows 10 Mobile app was stopped because Microsoft "hasn't paid...[them]...in five months".

While we know that Microsoft regularly provides incentives to different developers for bringing its platform up to speed, it isn't entirely clear if the payments in questions are an example of such incentives or simply earnings from the Windows Store. What we do know is that Microsoft has allegedly failed to pay their dues to the developers and, despite repeated requests, has not rectified the problem.

As a result of these problems, the developers were forced to halt further development on a Windows 10 Mobile app, leading to repeated complaints from users about bugs and finally culminating in the public outcry by the developer.
