|Hive Home rules out a Windows Phone app on its official FAQ page.|
At the moment the FAQs page on the Hive Home says the service has no plans to develop a Windows Phone app. Ok, I accept that the Windows Phone platform isn't anything like as big or as popular as Apple iOS or Google Play for Android devices. But Windows Phone is growing in popularity. According to ZDNet, Windows Phone in the UK overtook BlackBerry in August 2014 notching up 3.5 million users.
Porting the existing smartphone app to the Windows Phone platform isn't really a major or particularly expensive job so its seems a little lazy to deny Hive Home customers with Windows Phone an app of their own. Come on lads, get your fingers out.
