If you are one of them who is using Microsoft 6.x till now then there is something you ought to know. Microsoft will soon shutdown the Marketplace for its previous Operating System on May 9. After that you won’t be able use download or update any apps if you are developer.
You need not worry about the things that you will have already installed, as you will still be able to use those functions. And by any chance you format your phone then the only option to reinstall the apps will be to side-load them later.
As far as we know there are hardly anyone left who are using devices with Microsoft 6.x in it and even the Marketplace for it is also deserted and therefore shutting it down would be best decision.
