Let me ask the WinMo users a question. If you making your living as a developer, would you spend your time developing for a platform whose market share peaked a month or two ago at 10%, and has fallen to 6% since? Or for a platform hovering around 70%?
Android, used to power phones by Google, Samsung and others, is the most popular smartphone OS, and it expected to have a 75.3 percent share of the market by the end of the year, with that share dipping to 68.3 percent by 2017. Apple’s iOS, in second place, will have an estimated 16.9 market share by year’s end before climbing to 17.9 percent by 2017. IDC puts the share for Microsoft’s Windows Phone, which powers Nokia’s mobile phones, at 3.9 percent this year, and predicts it will rise to 10.2 percent by 2017.
Purveyor, Since there already is an iOS TD app (so they don't need to develop one), and since Android's market share is around 70%, and there currently is no native Android app for TD, I meant Android. The 10% and 6% for WinMo I got from a recent article I read, can't remember where now.
In any case, Jake has decided not to develop an app for Windows Phone. That's a legitimate choice, as is the choice to spend time and effort developing Outlines and Lists instead of an Android app. There are many choices, "if you make your living as a developer".
And, many choices if you are a subscriber.
