    Why would anyone want to use phone/tablet "Tinkertoy" Apps on a desktop PC?
    Out of respect for the forum rules I cannot say what I really think about that comment. I just ask what is it in this News app I use on my Windows 10 computer several times a day which makes it "phone/tablet Tinkertoy" instead of "real program". Please explain that to me.

    The same question about the Weather App, here only showing the main view, all other content easily and fast accessed:

    Or the free Excel App, which although officially named as "Excel Mobile App" runs perfectly well on a desktop computer, the word Mobile in its name only meaning that it also runs on mobile devices:

    I could continue the list but let's now first wait your answer about these three. You have some mighty phones and tablets if these full-fledged desktop apps run on them in the same way they do on a normal PC!

    It's in the same league as the idiotic disembodied menu bar on Macs (and GNOME3).

    Because some of the apps are just good programs..and they are as real as any program that you might install on your PC., I use News/Games and NetFlix apps and they're great.. and far from "TInkertoy" software.

    But both are still computer programs written with a real computer language to run on a computer device. It doesn't matter where they come from.

    That I will agree with. There is a lot of dead wood and duplicate junk in the Store. How many fart apps does one need?
