YOU ARE LOSING OUT ON SOOOO MUCH MONEY!!!
I was poking around, moving to a new office, and was setting up everything, and realizing since I started working in TV motion GFX and my Photography Studio. It is amazing what you can do on the new mobile devices.
I was setting up a new laptop and was trying to go down a mental list of those “must installs now” and I found myself once again with my wires crossed (fried!?? Lol) because no matter HOW much I want to call the “duet” app “duet,” I always for some reason call it Astropad, so of course it made me think Hey! It’s been since 2016 I think since I checked, and maybe there is a major PC announcement that I overlooked.
But, sigh, sadly there is still no solution, and I certainly don’t mean this in a rude way, I just get the impression that the desire to port the app/system over to Windows 10.
That is a shame, because even as I sit here typing happily on my iPad Pro 12.9” (yippee!) I think everyone has noticed - especially Apple, who scurried to make a “pro” version- that because of price, function, greater compatibility etc., the tablets like the MS Surface, et al, have shot right past Apple who I guess were all busy checking their faces out in the mirror/phone screen/weird unnecessary feature to unload their overpriced X.
Meanwhile, MS got VERY smart, “catering” their latest OS towards “creatives ad designers,” even calling their updates “Fall Creators Update” and that weird but cool little suction-cu dial or whatever that thing is, realizing that because things like the Adobe suite, or any other high end pro graphics software usually will be sold with/for the best hardware- it reminds me of when Avid, the undisputed Ingle of film editing software, started sweating when Final Cut Pro came out and suddenly in the theaters were films made entirely on Mac laptops. Avid was originally Mac only, but then (just like Apple) it made more sense to integrate traditionally PC hardware to run on so they could sell them either lower or the same and get a bigger profit.
So, basically, I am saying it is a big market out there you guys are losing fistfuls of cash on.
They said yesterday that Windows 10 in now on over SIX HUNDRED MILLION computers; so just because website and Game design is still growing, that alone combined with all of us pros let’s just say there are 200 million of those that purchase your services.
That is A LOT of cash, and ironically, I and my friends and colleagues are so gung-ho for a Windows 10 version of your product, you could probably find a few whiz kids who mastered writing for iOS 11 during the beta test phase, and who also know how to throw down in Windows, there’s probably a handful of college kids who would whip it up for you for college credit and their name in one of those Photoshop launch boxes where they use to have like 300 names LOL. You could get a working PC version, and a WAY BIGGER Marte to sell and provide your services too; It seems so odd to me that it isn’t already the talk of the town, because for most of us “creatives” we generally have all sorts of devices, or old laptops being used to render, or an Android phone work gives them, an iPhone and iPad for themselves, and both a PC and Mac laptop of desktop already anyway - but hey, maybe that group of kids wil make their own version on IndieGoGo and beat you guys to it and - WHOOMP! There it went! LOL - I am kidding around - sorta - but just this thread ALONE should tell you - it goes WAAAYYY back.
Now I really hope you guys are waiting for like Xmas or something and there’s this awesome announcement- that would be killer, and you can tell me Ha, ha! Dumbass! Hahahaha
In this case, it would be a welcome treat!!
Best to all of you, and here’s to your holidays being safe, and fun, and no drama.
