Microsoft killed the Windows Phone in July of 2017. Formerly Windows Mobile Devices (or WMDs), they were weapons of micro destruction. So when Microsoft declared it dead, so did app developers.

Completely agree. It is indeed very old. [I had tried on a Windows Desktop through the Store].

There are extremely less users on Windows Application as compared to the other platforms. I don't think they will update it anytime soon. There are other priorities too, like fixing bugs on the more popular platforms, and testing other features.

The best bet is to use Android/iOS App, or use the Website.

It's unfortunate, since the Windows app actually runs on PCs as well as phones (and even Microsoft's holographic headset!), regardless of the phone platforms (the older "Windows Phone" and the newer "Windows 10 Mobile") losing support.

Hopefully with the website improvements, eventually one day a 'universal' progressive web app can be offered, that allows development to be truly multiplatform.

Pinning the website works well for me. It's very mobile friendly.
