Has any tried this? Once again games workshop has released an iPhone only product despite Apple only having about a 30% market share. Why? I emailed them months ago to say make it android also and I will buy stuff but got no response. Has anyone else tried to talk to them?

According to my data iOS makes up 44% and Android 46%. But keep in kind there is not one Android version... There is a more disparate use of Android versions compared to iOS. So it could have been more cost effective.

However, there is also another take on it. GW has both iOS products and non iOS sales. It could be their sales point out iOS is far more popular among their clients.

Although Android has a higher overall market share, a lot of that is in low-end phones (translate -- people who don't spend much money and who therefore aren't in GW's target demographic).

GW......Over priced, secretive, arrogant, and with new products that bend if you apply sufficient pressure

Seems like a match made in heaven to me.
