Got Zune apps? Seems the Zune HD forum members are upset over the lack of apps for Zune HD players. The hot new media player from Microsoft is lacking in the number of downloadable apps available and fans of the Zune HD are voicing their concerns.
I gave up on timelines with Zune a long time ago. They seem to have no idea what the heck they are doing with the devices and they have been weak on the games and additional applications. This is the problem with a closed system like Microsoft offers. the Apple Touch device has loads of apps and a few app developers have made a pretty penny selling apps for iPhone but things are so dead on the Zune side that no one is jumpong up to create much more than the existing games and apps available.
In the Zune HD forums there are some frustrated Zune HD users patiently waiting for more Zune applications. I do sympathize with them since it is a little bit disparaging having such a powerful Nvidia Tegra device being limited by application releases. In the thread, Microsoft’s DaveMac-MS cannot yet offer a time table for app releases but does offer this: “I’ll be able to tell you more about the Twitter and Facebook apps once they’re out – in the meantime, there are a number of cogs in this wheel and we’d rather stick to a quality-driven release schedule, than a date-driven one.”
