So when all of our amateur strategists proclaim the death of the platform because it doesn't have one application or another, it is based on a personal preference rather than any empirical information.
Also, the main point of the post, you have to improve the experience in order to get more users, and that is what will get more developers. Easy? No. But it never happens the other way around.
