[ARC] is an interesting take on a concept that Microsoft has similarly been working on for Windows 10 for phones. Google though, with their ARC tools essentially allow for this to happen with Android apps – unofficially beating Microsoft to the punch.

Sepertinya Windows Phone akan bernasib sama dengan BlackBerry. Sedikit aplikasi karena sepi pengguna, sepi pengguna karena sedikit aplikasi. Akhirnya, meminta pertolongan ke platform lain; sideloading aplikasi Android.
