Hi everyone

so ive been shifting different mobile platforms for the past 2 years from iOS to android and back to iOS (both are great)...
for the past month ive been thinking of trying the Windows phone 10 (beta) note: ive been using windows 10 beta on both my main PC and Laptop for more than half a year and loving it!

back to the main topic, is there a possibility for a windows/phone app for manga by crunchyroll since there's already a video streaming app?

any thought on that or anything?


this is my mental image of myself writing this:

i doubt it, since there aren't that many people that actually use windows phone compared to the competitors. Also, Apple, Samsung, or any other phone company could threaten to pull the crunchyroll apps from their respective devices, in order to keep windows phone as a small threat in the phone market.

Umm... that doesn't make any sense. Using that logic, Apple would've pulled it off months ago because CR does have an Android app afterall. I use it all the time. I mean, Android is a pretty big treat no?

Anyways, I think now would be a good time to make one with Windows 10 rolling out really soon and since it'll have native cross-app support with Windows Phone 10 OS it really cuts down on the production cost of apps. Will they? Probably not, unless Microsoft can revitalize the Windows App Store. But a good app on a niche device can speak volumes for a company.

Android and apple share most of their apps though, I'm pretty sure they divide the spoils for themselves and prevent anyone else from getting large enough

Hopefully they built the XBox One app in a way that it can be easily ported over to Windows 10 when Universal Apps happen in the new Windows Store.

But we can only hope since we have not heard any news anywhere.
