No Flow Mobile App for Windows Phones !

Am I being daft - or am I right that there is no Flow Mobile App for Windows Phones - only for Android and IOS?

Hi Paul, thank you for the feedback.

A Windows Universal App is on our backlog.No concrete timeline yet. Until supported via universal app, you can use flow on your phone via browser, since we've designed the Flow website to be responsive for these cases.

happy to hear further feedback from you.

Thanks.

Awesome because I'd definitely love Flow on my 950xl and as an app on our work desktops, sure browser based might be responsive but it'd still be a benefit having it standalone. 

got an iPhone, iOS is the best platform for running MS apps!

Hi @Adi_Regev, I guess using the "manually trigger a flow" (button) is not an option for Windows Phone users then. Even in browser.

Am bummed by the fact that IFTTT doesn't have Windows Mobile support, but had seriously hoped that at least Microsoft would release apps for their own platform from the start. Total disappointment, more and more considering dumping my 950 and moving to iOS.

HI

Windows Phone is indeed in our plans and the Flow engineering team is working on support these days. we will be the first tp publish once this important support has been added, stay tuned for update on the matter. 

Thank you for the patience,

The Flow Product group. 

I don't think there is much patience after years of handling your own platform and users who believe in your strategy and products in such an unprofessional way. Hard enough to live with the barley existing support of third party developer's, but by MS itself? If you don't trust your own platform (and this is the message), why anybody else should? It seems you have no idea how much confidence you lose with decisions like this. And it seems you just don't care too much. 

Sigh! So hard to stay a Windows Mobile fan. I was at Ignite recently and at least 2 booth attendants tried to tell me MS was trying to get out of the phone business. I suggested they don't let the mobile guys hear them say that. 😞

Now, am I being daft? I set up a test flow using the send myself email after ten minutes triggered by flow button for mobile.

 

But it appears you cannot trigger that from the website and I am one of your unlucky fans that has Windows 10 mobile so it appears you workaround of using the website is not workable in this case.

 

Do you guys ever try the stuff you type? Anyone on the team have a windows phone???

Rather than phone, it would make more sense to make a UWA instead and could have Flow on the desktop along with Xbox One.

 

To me it stinks its not on the desktop, when I'm sitting at my surface I find it **bleep** distracting to have your phone notifiations goes off, have to stop and pick up the phone, unlock, reply, then switch back to surface.

 

Wunderlist is a great example can add stuff on my iPhone, then when I'm using my Surface and update list without having to pickup my phone.

 

I like Flow and just started to use it, but while writing this 2 push notifications came in and I had to stop typing to check them.

 

Also be neat to have Cortana integration, etc. I mean Windows 10 and Windows Mobile 10 have been merged isnt the push notifiation service part of windows now?

Any updates/time lines further on this ?

Do you have an idea of roadmap for the product for Windows mobile?

Need to know in order todecide a mobile platform for the deployment of Flow. 

 

As today, thinking only in iOS, maybe Android, where Flow (and IFTTT) have a more advanced apps.

 

ideas?
