HopStop drops Windows Phone support in wake of Apple acquisition

When tech giants buy developers, they frequently let app support fall by the wayside -- and Apple is continuing that trend following its acquisition of HopStop. Windows Phone users can no longer download or run their version of the HopStop app. Instead, the developer is asking them to use the mobile website for directions. Curiously, though, the Android app is still hanging around; Apple isn't dismissing all competing platforms, like it did after buying Siri. Neither Apple nor HopStop have offered explanations for the move, but it's clear that Windows Phone users will have to lean on alternatives like Here Transit to plan their daily commutes.
