Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

Qt decided to work around that with using Angle (OpenGL to Direct3D translation). But it's not an ideal solution. In general MS nastiness and hate for open standards can turn any developer away from their platform, so I'm not really surprised about Google.

If Qt makes it through - you'll have one decent option there.
