I think that Douglas is raising the idea of a new tool for Windows Phone device. I don't see it happening in the foreseeable future. However who knows...


Uhm... I think that Microsoft will buy Anywhere Software soon, then I would leave this task to it.

B4A - Targets Google Android
B4J - Based on Oracle technology
B4i - Targets Apple iOS

Why Microsoft ????

:)

For its huge market share in the mobile:
0.00000000000000000001 per thousand.
:D

MS is all about money..

A joke:
some asks his friend: does a vixen (female fox) give birth to an egg or baby fox?
the friend: don't trust a fox, they can do anything!

It would be really cool to see B4WindowsPhone!

However, one of the core keys of B4* family that makes it a RAD platform
is that its syntax is almost identical to Visual Basic.
You can develop in VB.net for windows Phone, and as far as I saw its not really
that hard at all to learn to develop for WP.

I'm planning to upgrade to Win 8 to start developing for Windows Phone in the
near future. And I will then be able to develop for Android (with B4A), IOS (B4i)
and WP8 (VB.NET), and I will rule the world, MUAJA!

I have Windows7 and VS 2010 express for Windows Phone (but it is full of mold and cobwebs :D)


I have highlighted something else:

This statistics represents shipment, but doesn't mean that the retention of a windows phone might have been higher (maybe the one who had a Samsung s4, wanted to go for a S5 this year, and maybe the one who had a high end Nokia Lumia didn't need the change).

However, 2.5% worldwide its a lot, its millions of users! I know its 40 times less than Android, but again there are a lot of developers that thinks "meh, I won't go for the windows phone market because its too small", so the competition in this market is also lower. What is more, Microsoft is a big boy and won't let Windows Phone die any soon. The Windows 10 release will be a big change, you will be able to develop for both desktop and mobile and go to a single Market, so you will hit the Desktop Store as well.

And keep in mind, that if one day you want to sell some app to a client, you will get more reputation if you can provide a complete mobile solution: Android, WP, and IOS (let assume that blackberry its really going down soon :p ). You will be able to program in one language (visual basic), and prove a complete native solution for all platforms!

Is it better to have a customer who pays $ 1,000 or 10,000 customers who pay 50 cents?

Even "big boys" can die.

However, B4W not worth the candle (I hope this is an international way of saying).
If I wanted to develop a project for windows phone I would use the Microsoft tools.

But it would be good if more competition would be on the market and not only Android and IOS.
If more programmers have been programming for Windows Phone then would be much better.

... or maybe one who had a Nokia Lumia wants to discard it and buy a Samsung S6 (more likely ;))
