Win 10 support for the few of us that exist?

I know I'm in the minority, but I would love a Windows 10 app. That said, I do have skills and knowledge of app development so if you have no desire to make one your self, maybe we could discuss you sharing Data, APIs and Source and I could build one? Either way thank you.

Well, the Android port of the iOS source code took me more the one year of full time work. And this is with all the knowledge I have compared to someone who needs to learn the structure first. LapTimer consists of 50% platform independent C++ code plus 50% platform code (Java for Android and Objective-C for iOS). Talking about 344000 LOCs currently. And a lot of the code is not the usual stuff you find in an average app - LapTimer is integrating dozens of sensors and doing media processing etc...

I do not want to discourage something like this, but even a stripped version would require at least one year of work. So you'd need a serious business case and a lot of investment. And I'm not sure there is something like a business case for Windows 10 in the mobile space. ;-)
