AppRaisin is now accessible to Windows Phone 8 and non-Windows users


AppRaisin is a community-driven Windows 10 UWP app that enables users to discover the top of the crop app and game releases and updates from the Windows Store.

One of the big requests for AppRaisin team was the support for Windows Phone 8 devices. But since it’s pretty hard to scale down the UWP app we carried out another way to expand the reach and released a mobile web version of AppRaisin service instead. Currently it is in read-only mode, but still it enables a large number of WP8 and non-Windows users to keep up with the latest Windows Store app and game news around the world.
