    You need to ask the developer to great the app for Windows. There are no conversion tools, and any translation tools would be illegal.

    Well, there is your answer. The Android porting tool was removed. I guess Google had a say in that. So, no, there is no way (at present)

    Google were fine with Astoria, they had to be or it would never of come into existence.

    What wasn't fine was app developers leaking the tool, someone figuring out how to abuse it, and then everyone else using it to install pirated Android apps onto their phones.

    Astoria stood a chance of helping to reduce the app gap and get more apps legally ported to Windows Phone. It was killed by people who couldn't wait and didn't care about respecting usage rights. Shame really.

    Ah, yes. I remember now. Links all over the web, and the erosion of dev's intellectual rights.

    Alas, that is the way of the world these days. They want it, but they want it now and for nowt.
