As a loyal and happy Windows Phone user from its early Windows Phone 7 days through to my current Nokia Lumia 920 and 1520, I have been frustrated by the lack of Sky Go support (and BT Sport) on the platform.
Yesterday I invested in a (cheapish) Android phone - the Moto E.
Much to my shock and dismay, I find that Sky Go is not supported on this device. (At least BT Sport is supported!) What is going on? I take it "Android" is an umbrella term for a random set of implementations which are all fundamentally different.
I am far from an expert, but I have knocked out apps which have worked on each version of the Windows Phone OS - there have never been any breaking changes as far as I'm aware, although some appa are of course not backward compatible.
This is true. Sky have to roll out versions of Sky Go for each flavour of Android. The problem is, just like Linux, there's no 1 version of Android so each manufacturer can tweak it exactly as they'd like. And yes, I wish that Sky (along with other companies) would provide versions of their applications to run on Windows Phones.
If that is a must, you feel comfortable to do it and the device is supported, why not Cyanogenmod or other similar mods? people in maclaw studio (now novafusion) allow you to set kitkat 4.4.3 in a Samsung S3 Mini, who knows if it could run in your device... after that this would be a completely free phone +/- like a Nexus...
I was suggesting you to replace the original OS in your pone for a port of the new Android 4.4.3 by cyanogenmod... That way you could have used that App you are interested in... a pity if that is not supported... you would have probably lost your warranty, but...
