Microsoft has been calling its user interface for Windows Phone and Windows 8 the ‘Metro UI’ and now Microsoft has told its developers to stop using the ‘Metro’ name in their apps.
According to a recent report from The Verge, this is because of a potential dispute between Microsoft and German company Metro AG over the Metro name.
The Metro trademark is held in Germany by Metro AG, and it looks like the company who owns the trademark are less than pleased with Microsoft’s choice of name for their UI, although when asked for a comment on the issue they declined to.
