who really knows if there's plans to make one or not (i definitely don't), but as we're currently spread very thin on desktop, android, mac and cloud (and it's webclient), making another app just is going to strain that even more. so is most likely a matter of time (a lack off) and money (again a lack off) which makes a Windows 8 app just not viable (but that's my own view).

well we need to make money what with being a business and things like that drive decisions. sure it'd be done in an ideal world but starting an app from scratch is not easy - that was done with the android app and it's still not quite there after 4 years with most of the dev team resource so think what it'd be like for another platform.

Why not making a paid version or just like VLC player they asked for donations and it worked If money is the problem sounds good?

Here is the VLC for Windows 8 Kickstarter Project
