    Is the Windows Phone 8 apps compatible with Windows Phone 7 and 7.5?

    I just want to know if the apps which are designed for Windows Phone 8 will be compatible with Windows Phone 7 and 7.5? Is it going to be a hit if there is no backward compatibility for the apps in Windows Phone 8?

    hi there,
    Windows 8 has a special type of Apps that are getting popular with it, called Metro App. These apps are made for being compatible with windows 8. You may not be able to use all of them on window phone 7 or 7.5 but still some apps will be available to run on the platforms.

    Hello my dear friend ,



    The new version of windows 8 is totally different from all of its previous versions.
    This too is applicable for the mobile devices that have used previous mobile versions of windows namely windows 7, 7.5.
    Windows operating system make use of the silverlight 5.


    Now going by the news releases from the microsoft all the applications that are currently running on the win 7 and win 7.5 mobile operating system
    will also be supported on the windows 8 version.
    But the reverse is very unlikely because the latest version is entirely different from any of its previous versions.


    One more thing that can be a bad news for the windows mobile users is that
    Windows Phone 7.5 devices won’t be able to run its new Windows Phone 8 operating system but these devices will get an upgrade to Windows Phone 7.8.
    Win 7.8
    incorporate the new-look Start Screen of Windows 8. but is no where near to the windows 8 operating system.

    Sorry my dear friend, Most of the games which are mainly designed for windows 8 will not work on window 7 or 7.5 windows mobiles.
    Sometimes those games may work on windows 7 or 7.5 but you may find the difference while working on it.
    Speed and graphics varies from device to device and OS to OS. So Games which are launched for windows 8 mobile will not in lower versions

    happy to assist you

    dear friend,
    the windows which is released is entirely different from the its previous versions windows 7/windows 7.5.most of the games of windows 8 will not work on the windows 7/7.5 even if they work there will be a difference between them because speed and processor changes.specific os has a specific processor and the processor of windows 8 phone is latest and it runs fast so the games are designed according to that processor speed as the processor of windows 8 more than the that of windows 7/7.5 that why all the games of windows 8 are not played in windows 7/7.5

    i hope this will help you
