Title: Create A Windows Application
Post by: Richard D on January 23, 2018, 09:50:10 AM
The use of Microsoft Windows is huge and many people use a laptop to browse the WEB for hours. This would also expand the market beyond IOS and Android.

I've been told this will not happen. :(

Unfortunately,  the ‘configurable from PC’ will probably have to be a community thing.  This was designed to configure and use completely PC free and designing a computer program behind it for the handful of people that would want it would probably not be a great investment of our resources and time.

However they have stated code will be released latter so that the community could create something.
Also I have been able to set this up via a windows laptop so with a little help of an android emulator it is possible now.

I believe we would be more likely to see a web interface which any OS could access from any browser. ::) :'

If they release the protocol, user created interfaces for Windows, RPi, Arduino and more will likely follow.

I can imagine myself using an Android phone at some point. I am NOT anti-Android. But a Windows based phone? Maybe someday. I don't like to use the word never. But I can't see myself using a Windows based phone in the near future.

The Windows Phone project is dead.

So what would be the point? So a few old guys (like ourselves) could use our desktops to setup our WM100's.... OK.

Web page setup.

It would be really nice if the WM100 could be set up and controlled from a PC.
It would also be nice if the unit didn't have to be unplugged to sync phones.
