Your app sucks and now I know what to do about it

The Windows Phone marketplace is a semi curated environment. This is both a good and a bad thing.
It makes the app submission process fairly reliable and keeps the very buggy and inappropriate apps out.
It does, however, require a human element in the certification process that can be subject to inconsistency and error.
Sometimes apps pass certification which shouldn't have. This is separate from any quality judgement, I'm referring here to apps breaking the marketplace rules and certification requirements
Fortunately, there is a place to report such occurrence: Reporting a Concern about an App in the Marketplace

If you're interested in and concerned about the general quality of what's in the marketplace - presumably because you want to see high quality, predictable apps which bring value to the overall ecosystem then I'd like to encourage you to report any such apps that break the certification rules too.

!!! This is not a place for reporting "bad" apps, just ones that break certification rules !!!

This isn't a substitute for also reporting such issues to the creators/publishers of such apps and engaging with them also. So that they can address the issues and learn what they shouldn't be doing.

If you've built Windows Phone or Windows Store apps you can cross-promote them with AdDuplex to get more users.

    1. We've demonstrated a strong track record of being very disciplined with the use of our cash. We don't let it burn a hole in our pocket, we don't allow it to motivate us to do stupid acquisitions. And so I think that we'd like to continue to keep our powder dry, because we do feel that there are one or more strategic opportunities in the future.

  7. Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
