Microsoft-owned game developer Mojang has announced a few days ago that the Minecraft: Pocket Edition game is now available for Windows Phone users. However, the game has not been launched on the Windows Store, as well, which has left many users disappointed.
minecraft windows storeAfter a long wait, Windows Phone owners have finally received Minecraft on their devices, but this has only happened after Microsoft has acquired the company behind it. Otherwise, there’s really no telling how it would’ve taken to finally arrive on the Windows Phone store.
However, the launch rises another annoying problem that has been affected Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and current Windows 10 testers – the exasperating lack of great apps on the Windows Store. Here’s what one annoyed users has been saying:

will minecraft pocket edition for windows 8.1 phone work with windows 8.1 tablets? and if not anyone know if they will make an app for windows tablets?

I went to the Windows Store to check just how many Minecraft spam apps were there, and, as you can see in the above screenshot, the number is somewhere near 300… From all this plethora of useless apps, there’s only one that’s a real game, and that’s Blockworld.

While Microsoft hasn’t disclosed how many Windows tablet owners are out there in the wild, but restraining Minecraft from the Windows Store is definitely not a wise decision for them to take. Let’s hope that once Windows 10 brings an unified store, things will change.
