Microsoft Store Application

Post by gamer47293932 »

Will you consider publishing Rainmeter to the Microsoft Store? The store now allows developers to provide apps from third-party sources and I think the app will benefit from being published in a reputable app store.

I think this will get quick attention if you post it in the 'bugs and feature suggestions" section.

We may consider this in the future, but we have no current plans in submitting Rainmeter to the Microsoft app store. We do support winget installations.

We prefer to interact with our users on a platform that we control, independent on 3rd party services. We want users to use rainmeter.net to download Rainmeter, look up any documentation needed, and to ask for help on our forums.

More like, "We don't have time to look up the replies and provide support on Windows Store." stuff. And this is not untrue.

But if it was only that, you could disable comments and redirect them here.
