The problem with development for mobile platforms is that there is no
commonality between vendors other than when doing a web based application.
That's not viable for ASD as it's intended for offline use.

To do ASD for windows would be a completely new development, as would one
for iOS.

I do cross platform ones for the day job and you can end up with the lowest
common denominator in terms of functionality.
