I KNOW it's only for Android/iOS - currently - but just wondering if there's any consideration to create a Go App for Windows tablets...
There's plenty of small Windows tablets (I've had 3), that seem like they would have enough horsepower to run the app, and they can be fairly cheap.  Got the last one on the MS store, for $59 - about $100 off for an 8" tablet running a Cherry Trail processor.  So they are out there, and seem pretty good.  Battery life is OK - not anywhere near as good as iOS, and roughly on par with the smaller Android tablets...

I could use my 13" surface book detachable screen with the RC    I doubt there will be a windows app anytime soon if ever, Microsoft lost that market years ago.  I hated having to get an iPad but it is what it is.

I know M$ has - just wondering...

It would be great to see a windows 10 app so I can use my sp4. There are plenty of people with windows 2 in 1s that would love to use them instead of their phone. I have been using my s7 and the experience is no where near as good as my friends iPad. Hopefully these threads get some traction and DJI sees there is a market for a UWP app.

If you can use surface book to fly dji drones it would streamline so many postwork video editing.  Especially with dedicated gpu units.

It will be very nice to have an Windows version of DJI Go, usable on Windows tablet or desktop ! Big screen for the live view, better performance !

Doesn't seem like there's anything new. I try to check back every few weeks and all I see is a new comment here and there.

Ouch,the emulators for android makes the win system lose much speed to process the data from and to the copter. A native windows DJI Go could be the best for the win PC or tablet.

Yeah, I have a Transformer Windows tablet that is much more powerful than my Android tablet. Would be great to use it.

I would also love to have a windows app, universal of course, that way you can run it as a standalone app in any windows machine.the thing is, i have really nice lenovo tablet, works amazingly fast, high brightness, and it just sits there. OTG functions are something to be considered of course, but hey, what is the market share of windows running hardware? You can port your existing app DJI if you didnt know....

Remix not as an emulator as a standalone OS on a Windows hardware could do it but the most laptops and tablet pc´s with windows have safe boot option. If i can do that then the Go app runs on the Surface2 without a handbrake.

I'm using DuOS, an excellent Android emulator for Windows on my Dell E6540 and I am able to connect to the drone's feed using the DJI-Go app on the emulator. The speed is not bad at all and definitely usable. I am running an i5 CPU with 8GB RAM.

How about porting  it to run on Linux? Android OS is basically a Linux derivitive.

Agreed. But Windows is a bit more complex; that's why there's C#: It does all the hard work for you... And from my understanding Apple mobile applications can be compiled in C# (From what I'd just Googled, never done it). The problem is, it may be a legality issue with some guy trying to fly his quadcopter outside while he's on his desktop PC in the house. But I would love to see a Windows application for Windows tablets. Apple operating systems drive me insane.

That does not say that a version of DJI's Go App is being ported to Windows at all. It says an SDK will be released for Windows so that developers can create applications using the drone technocolgy. Two very different things.

Well, you honestly want to risk your drone on an emulator for an OS and run an app on that?  I can't even begin to name the ways that could go wrong.  Overall, Android really bothers me.  I've got a tablet, and I get CONTINUOUS updates - from Google no less - on it.  While that may seem good - you've really got to ask just how many bugs are in there that they need to fix?  I haven't upgraded the OS, and the next OS release won't be released until later this fall - so what do they need to fix 2-3 times a week?  Same apps continuously.

I'd say if anyone runs on Android - find whatever works reliably on your tablet - and don't update it until the next tablet...

I gave up on Windows tablets long ago.  They were a "flash in the pan", and never had enough serious memory or horsepower to go anywhere.

That wouldn't be an emulator if the OS is Android specific.
I'm thinking of trying on my surface or just wait for Windows version to come out  but not holding my breath for that of course!

I have one (SP4) - and I can say it is NOT a "Windows Tablet".  It's a laptop that can act as a tablet.  Look around, and you really won't find them like you could 18-24 months ago.  Might be one or two - but they don't really exist anymore.

Well, you've got one of two choices:

1.  Run something like Phoenix or Android-X86, which replaces your OS (or boot from USB), and now you can be a tester.  Unless you have the exact same hardware as someone else who has successfully tested those OS's (down to the same chipset level) - you are a tester on your device.  May work, may not.  Drivers may not work properly or they may.  Not knocking those who have created either of these (or others) - but YOU become the tester.

OR

2.  You run something like "Bluestacks" which tells you on their front page that they are an emulator.

Either way - you're "off the reservation" so to speak.  You think DJI tests their software on these devices/software?  Or they test the more popular and widespread tablets that exist?

So again - you want to risk a "fly-away" or something else catastrophic to play with untested software on an untested device?  Go pick up a Samsung Galaxy tab - they support DJI - I'll bete DJI tests on these devices - get a used one pretty cheap.  I've seen them for $50.  Compared to an $800+ drone - that seems to be safe insurance.

And you appear to be in the United States.  Care to explain to the FAA how your drone violated something they want to burn you for - because the software stack(s) you operated on are untried and untested?  And even if you have 100 successful flights - all it takes is the one.

I'll probably gravitate to the ipad mini 4, and if they ever support microsoft I will still have my surface.

I don't see how it can cause a fly away when the drone can be flown without a tablet or phone. If something starts to go wrong simply unplug the cord and you will have full control.
