Why no Roadside Assistance App?

Why is Verizon failing to support Windows Phone customers with a Roadside Assistance app? I was told when I got the phone that Verizon apps are available on all 3 platforms.

Not ALL Verizon apps. And the Verizon roadside app is nowhere near as useful as having Triple-A and their phone number in your address book.  The bottom line is that there still is an "app gap" compared to other platforms. BlackBerry users have the same issues. No banking apps for major US banks, etc. Verizon can't justify dedicating the resources to creating the Windows apps with such a relatively small user base. In a perfect world they'd have the same apps for all platforms. But now, especially with Microsoft transitioning to Windows 10 Mobile, writing apps for WP8 and then W10M, it's just not in the cards. And if the Surface Phone doesn't attract a significant userbase the app situation will not improve.
