Umake for Windows 10

It would be great if you'd made umake for windows devices.  This would greatly expand your market as the ability to create 3D by "sketching" would be appreciated by any designer, no matter the platform.    And, windows has a lot of powerful devices that can be interacted with through "touch" or pen.   Please please consider this !

Aaron, 


Definitely a great topic for discussion. We've heard several interested people express their desire to have uMake on either Windows or Android devices. In some cases we understand that potential users don't want to invest in new hardware when they have good hardware such as a Surface Pro, Cintiq Companion, or Galaxy Tab Pro.. 


When uMake started we chose the iPad as it is the best selling tablet in the world and a great piece of hardware. In addition, the iOS app store offers a great ecosystem of other apps that compliment uMake, like Procreate, Pixelmator, Enlight, and others to name a few.  As we are a small team, we decided to focus on iOS and the iPad for the development of the app so we could focus more on the user experience and adding user feature requests versus multiple platforms. As the hardware and software integration of the iPad and IOS is very tight and predictable, this allows us to spend more time developing and less time troubleshooting bugs or potential hardware constraints. 


While we are not opposed to developing versions of uMake for other platforms in the future, and while we certainly understand that it would expand our market for many more users, our current focus is creating a great app with a great user experience-- once we get that right and working great on the iPad, then we would feel better about looking at other platforms. That said, it all depends on what the market does and how mobile devices evolve. 

By the way, great work on your website! The spoke tool for ZBrush is a very practical plugin-- really cool. I definitely can understand why running uMake on Win 10 would be of interest! 

Plus 1 on the Windows 10 idea.


Definitely. 

Another Plus 1 on the Windows 10 idea.

I am looking for an application like this for a Surface, but cannot find it.

 

Do Win10!  uMake (or some other ILoveSketch-type app) should definitely be available on the best and most widely deployed pen platform in the world - there are more Surface Pro devices than anything else with a capable pen (Surface 4 and later are absolutely in the same league as the iPad Pro - any Surface Pro is way better than any iPad other than the Pro for sketching).

Add to that the Surface Studio, which is truly the future and in a class of its own, and which Apple cannot easily match, and you've got a compelling case for a port that could increase your number of licenses by a very large multiple.  There's a LOT of pent-up demand for a product like this on Surface and similar devices..
