PayPal stop support

Online payments company, PayPal, have said that they're waving goodbye to Microsoft Windows Phone, BlackBerry and Amazon Kindle Fire, ditching support for the respective apps.

June 30th will be the last day for Windows Phone, BlackBerry and Amazon Kindle Fire users to access their PayPal apps, and Apple and Android will have to update their apps.

While this is bad news for anyone who anyone who uses those particular platforms, it is good news for Google and Apple, as this shows their complete dominance in the field.

While Windows phones and BlackBerry handsets are clearly not very popular, it is interesting that PayPal will no loner provide support to Amazon Kindle Fire, which is still something of a big seller.

PayPal say: "It was a difficult decision to no longer support the PayPal app on these mobile platforms, but we believe it's the right thing to ensure we are investing our resources in creating the very best experiences for our customers."

Of course, BlackBerry, Windows, and Kindle Fire owners will still be able to use PayPal through the mobile site, so it isn't the end of the world for them, even if it is a little inconvenient.
