Nokia Kicks Devs in the... well, out of the Developers Program

Some madness from Nokia:

Jan Ole Suhr ( @JanOle ) is behind one of Symbian's most succesful Apps - that is "Gravity" for Twitter, FaceBook and then some.
Gravity is highly rated - even some Android and iOS fansites call it the BEST app for mobile social networking.

Anyhoo... Like all veteran Nokia devs, Mr Suhr recently got his freebie Lumia, and everyone, including him, assumed he'd be working on a port of Gravity to Windows Phone.

You'd think, right?
Wrong.
They ditched him. Kicked him out. No more elite Nokia Developers Program gold card. No comment.
And no Gravity for Windows Phone.

On the plus side: Jan-Ole confirmed he's now looking into porting Gravity to iOS and/or Android.
Happy times!

Nokia and RIM should get together and write a book on how to ruin a once highly profitable company in three easy steps...both of their business practices are shockingly poor.

I say....

To give you a better idea: Gravity costs €10 for Symbian. And still it's one of the most downloaded apps for Nokia devices! That is how bl**dy good it is! And Nokes say: pah...go away. We don't want you on WP! o_O
