I am thrilled to see the Android edition of BOINC software. I installed it on my phone and am crunching tasks with that.

There are a bunch of smartphone devices out there which runs on Windows Phone. Is there a plan to extend the mobile support of BOINC to Windows Phone as a next step from Android support?

I understand that iPhone/iPad support is difficult to accomplish given the walled green approach of Apple. Is the case with Windows Phone different? If so, will BOINC start supporting Windows Phone devices by releasing an official BOINC app for Windows Phone?

Hi,

I have asked the developers if there are plans to port BOINC to Windows Phone 8, the operating system used in Windows Phones. They've told me there are no plans to port BOINC, not for the near future at least. Perhaps later, at least after 6 months.
