Dimensional Research asked 1,337 Windows developers around the world for their views on going mobile.
According to the research, there is great demand for development, but delivery itself is challenging, revealing a disconnect between the interest in apps and the tools available to actually make them.
85 percent of the respondents had received requests for mobile apps. The most requested platform by far was for Android support.
Senior researcher at Dimensional Research, Diane Hagglund, said that Windows developers see the need to bring their experiences to mobile. But “today’s development options either limit the end user or result in costly and complex native development across multiple platforms”.
“These Windows developers clearly need better options,” Hagglund said
