MS is helping win32 apps get on phones. I love TW and what it on a phone, as others according to posts I've read - would MS's move help make that happen?

If so, what phone? OR do you know of a wine type way to get TW on a win phone or android? I have mysword, while good, it's not TW (limited compared to) and having my work (notes, personal cross refs, lists etc.) with me wherever I go would be so helpful. The alternative is a small tablet, but the smallest I've found is 7inch - not pocket size.

As for resources on small screens - your max window feature in TW with a tab feature would work. ie, if my TW setup has 12 open windows and I enter max window, there can be a menu with tabs to all open TW windows. The modification would be limited to the max view thereby should be less of a modification than if it were on the whole app or a limited split screen setup like mysword has as an additional option on the main menu.

This is good because devices now can wifi or plug into monitors keyboards etc on the go - basically TW on a small device while out and large screen once home.

Alternatively, a paid android full featured version? I'd paid and I'm sure many others would pay $5, $10 for the ability to work with TW on android. That not much money, but you have thousands of loyal TW users.

Let me know if any of these setup can happen. Thanks for you work.

Hi Dan,
i am afraid that the best approach for the moment is a Windows tables that can run native apps. There are great tabs like that out there.
There are no current plans for Android

Agree. I've been running TW 5 as a native app on an entry level Asus tablet that I got for about $99 on a Black Friday sale.

I also have TW installed on a somewhat more powerful i3 based HP Split laptop (detachable keyboard).
