Microsoft reportedly paying developers up to $100,000 to write for Windows Phone According to multiple reports, Microsoft is offering money up front to certain developers for them to write Windows Phone 8 apps.
While the company currently offers anyone who develops up to $2000 ($100 per app), big name developers can make up to $100,000.

Of course, paying to bring popular apps over to the fledgling operating system makes perfect sense, given how far behind they are behind Android and iOS.

For the operating system, Microsoft has had extraordinarily deep pockets. The company pays struggling phone maker up to $1 billion per year to exclusively build Lumia Windows Phone devices.

It did work for the first Xbox. Though it seems like they are doing there best to throw all that away with the Xbox one.
