So, we have a dice roller for smartphones, but not everyone has a smartphone or a tablet.  Frankly I believe you're more likely to find laptops and even desktops at a game than you are smartphones and tablets.

That being the case, isn't it time somebody from FFG took a look at a Dice App for Windows?  Can it be that hard to take the one you have already and alter it so it works on Windows?  I mean, it's snazzy and well done, but it's not the mainframe OS at NORAD or anything, it can't be that hard to do can it?

Come on, guys, it's time isn't it?

For those who might suggest Android Emulators for the PC, I tried Bluestacks but it makes my PC crash for reasons known only to it and Almighty God....

Pretty Please?

I've written one as well. Doesn't have any fancy graphics, but I prefer simple to pretty.

I know it's not quite what was asked for but it's not very well known and deserves more coverage - there's an EotE dice roller for Windows Phone. Just search for Edge of the Empire in the store and it will show up. Very nice, very quick and looks good.

Something for those of us with Windows phones anyway.

I lack credentials.

One of the main reasons I chose an adroid phone over a windows phone a few months ago was the apparent lack of EotE dice roller for the latter... When GMing I really prefer to roll the dice on the phone - much faster, can save pools etc etc.
