Is it worth porting new apps you launch on BB10 to the Playbook

I've been wondering, and maybe a developer would like to share success or failures, if it is worth publishing any new apps to support the Playbook.   When I'm about to push a new app to BB10, I come to the delema of whether it is worth my time to do the lttle extra formating work and working on the listing to publish the app for Playbooks.  I'm not sure if anyone on that platform is still downloading or purchasing new apps at this point.  Maybe one of the community members can share their experience.

Well I know how much I currently turn on my playbook, which isn't very often.  Have you see a consistent user base still active on the platform?

One possible angle for tablets like PlayBook that are no longer supported - make kid's games and apps (if you are so inclined, and if that fits into your approach on other platforms).

 

I would guess that a lot of these legacy devices end up being given to kids when the parents decide to move on to a newer device.  But, that's just a guess.

over 1.5 million sold so there is a chance to make money

 

My kids and I like to play games on the playbook still. We use it a lot still.

We use our daily, and not for playing games... so we're always on the lookout for new native PB apps :smileywink:
