I know there is plans to but I doubt it will be anytime soon.

Would pay top dollar for Ad Muncher on a mobile device!

Apple and Google have gone out of their way to make it very technically challenging to ad a proper ad blocker to their respective Operating systems.

if it's possible we will do it...

So does that mean there is still hope for Windows Phone?

I will be switching to a windows phone once it matures a little better in a few years.

Windows phone has such a tiny market share we may never release a product for it.

iphone or android.

they have 95% of the market.

Very true, but also plan for where the market will be if you release something (could be years away if AM 5.0 timeline is anything to go by..)
iPhone is plateauing in most markets and falling in some. North America is the one market it remains strong.
Android is still growing and is currently the clear leader and no signs of that changing in the short term.
Windows Phone is growing steadily and has overtaken iPhone in 12 countries to become 2nd place to Android.

I'm going to take a guess that the majority of your customer base is in North America and therefore any business plan would be based on short term ROI and therefore you would take the predictable route of iPhone and Android based on platform market share in North America.

Another consideration is 'willingness to buy' on each platform. From the developers I've spoken with in the mobile app world, Android users generally have a significantly lower desire to pay for apps as compared to iPhone and Windows Phone users.

Anyway, I'd happily buy AM on my household's two Windows Phones, two iPads, and if you will do a Windows RT version, on that platform as well :)

Thank you for that. We will take it all into consideration. :)

Hello. I was in the neighborhood and thought I would drop by. I use ad muncher every day and am so happy that I found your program years ago. Your product works seamlessly with so much more ease than any other adblocker I have ever tried. Thank you.
I finally and quite recently graduated to an android smart phone and wondered if you had created a version for android. I see that you have not. I can understand why you might not want to considering that most apps on the Google Play Store range in price from free to $4.99. That is probably a great deal of work and upkeep for a changing market of android candy versions (i.e. kit kat, marshmallow, etc.). However, should you ever decide to create an android app, I would be one of the many who would be most appreciative. :D
Have a great day with many more to come!

We have no resources to do this unfortunately.
