Eh not really like this.
First of all, I am a software developer myself and I'm not working in Astro.
For each of the Astro GO, which I categorize as Web browser, Android app, iOS app, HuaWei Gallery App and etc etc (if have others).
All required human being with specific skillset from each of the category OR there surely be someone who have all the skill lah but of course their salary not cheap also lah.
Even browser, they need to ensure compatibility among all the "popular" browser in the market since some of their JS implementation is different.
They would need to test it all out to ensure the end product have no issue.
If not, later banyak pula customer complaint "why ada error".
I believe it's up to the market demand If they decide to develop new Windows 10 app.
Of course, I believe that this Windows 10 app is nice thing to have in the future since most of the household have Windows 10 PC.
Well yes, I agree with that.
In terms of overall user experience, I still think both Astro Go and Astro Ultra Box software (Ultraview) still has a lot of room for improvements.
As a good point of reference, maybe Astro software team should learn more from Netflix app or Apple TV.
Not even to mention, video and audio quality as well
No, don't start with the adaptive streaming nonsense. Netflix all those, they also uses adaptive streaming.
Instead of making the app layout to look different on every platforms, from mobile, tablet, web browser, set-top-box or smart TVs, why not making the app and software like website's "responsive theme" which offers better usability and flexible screen display layout regardless of screen sizes, while making sure it doesn't burden the hardware (CPU/GPU) and its software?
Talking about enough "testing", seems that even with the newer Ultraview software, although it has improved a lot in the past 1 year, yet some weird glitches still happens here and there.
Lack of manpower, or lack of skillset, or just money problem?
