Avast for Windows Phones
« on: March 27, 2016, 03:13:13 AM »
Is there going to be a mobile version for Window Phones? Not having a mobile app for my phone is holding me back from upgrading from the free version.  :(

Same problem with me: I can't upgrade without an Avast app for my Windows Phone!
And I think there are more and more longtime Avast users changing from Android to WindowsPhone who now are desperately
searching for an Avast application in the Windows Mobile Store but only find fake products!
Having lost my old Android I just changed to a cheap but technically very good WindowsPhone (8.1) but found out there is no official Avast app for it. Searching on this forum I just found a theme from Spulci (august 2016) with her final remark:
"As a Windows phone user I hope to see an Avast tool soon on this OS" - That's what I hope too!
But now it's 8 months later, so my question is: ¿Is there still no Avast app for WindowsPhone?
I think it's time for Avast to change their policy now!
How could we persuade them to develop that app (at least for WP 8.1 and 10)?!?!
Thanks a lot in advance for any answer!

No, that's not true, the situation has changed!

It hasn't changed that much at all, it is still a very small market share as mentioned in a reply to one of your other posts.
