Skyscanner is a mobile app which allowed users to search millions of routes on over 1,000 airlines and find the lowest priced flights in seconds. It sources the best deals then connects you to the airline or travel agent to make your booking directly, so you always get the best deals. It was released in Windows Phone Store back in 2011. Now, the developers behind this app have decided to pull the app from Windows Phone Store in the US. Due to low usage when compared to iOS and Android, they have decided to remove the app in US store. They provided the following statement for removing the app from US Windows Phone Store.

“We’ve put this change into effect in the U.S.-only. Although we take a mobile-first approach at Skyscanner, we also are very much focused on the local intricacies of each market. In the U.S., our Android and iOS apps are the most popular, with a very small % of users being Windows users. With the global trend being Windows users are more likely to use mobile web, we’re concentrating on this aspect for the U.S. market.”
