Huh, Peter and co. seem to have changed their tune all of a sudden. Back when the Surface was released I sent mails and posted on many program fora requesting the devs to release Metro versions of their apps, both for x86 and ARM. Peter (or was it Kode54) refused outright. Wonder why they're suddenly so interested? Perhaps the opportunity to lay their hands on a nice chunk of change? (To clarify, I think fb2k is an awesome player and these guys have so far done a wonderful job with it.)
$300,000 for Windows Phone and Tablet versions? Does that include Windows RT/ARM support? Regardless this tier looks a bit doubtful and after the crappy VLC experience I'm not sure I want to go through another drama like that ever again. But who knows, if these guys make it they might even release WP and ARM versions (if that's part of the goal) before VLC is ever released on those platforms.
Will the final app be free or paid? If the latter I guess they haven't decided how much it'll cost yet? (If it was mentioned somewhere I must have missed it, only skimmed the page quickly.)
There will be two versions of foobar2000 mobile, a free and fully featured premium version. The elements Cloud, Streaming and Social may, or may not have subscription fees attached.
Will the free version have ads? As for the "fully featured premium version", is it the free version with the addition of cloud, social and streaming? What if these 3 goals aren't met? I think $500,000, $700,000 and $1,000,000 are really over the top (and 1.3 million dollars for What's in Store? Wow! ), but who knows. Guess we'll find out in a couple of months.
