What type of phone do you use, iOS or Android?


We were curious what the most popular type of phone GlassWire for Windows users use? Do you prefer Apple phones or Android phones?

We are working on an Android version of GlassWire we hope to release in December.

I have:
Android 2.4
Android 6.01
Windows Mobile 8.1

I mention Windows Mobile because it is a great interface for a Windows user. Depending how you are building cross-platform applications then it should be relatively little work to get a Windows Mobile version as well. I presume that you’ll continue with Qt but I don’t know how common the codebase will be.

I know that Windows Phone is not that popular in the US but it is more popular internationally.


I was an Android user primarily, but I switched over to a Windows 10 Mobile device a couple of months ago. The biggest userbase will probably be on Android though, but it’d be nice to have GlassWire on Windows mobile too!

Also, if this forum has no poll, you can use StrawPoll to get a nice and quick summary.


Discourse has polls:

It is possible to add images and do other things as also mentioned in some of the posts in the corresponding Discourse topic:


I only use Android :slight_smile:

Will you release GlassWire 2.0 also in december? Can you give us some hints about the new features it will have? Im very excited about the new version… :slight_smile:

One 2.0 Windows feature we will have is profiles, so you can have different firewall profiles. For example block all but X app, then save it to use later.


Four Android devices here. 2 phones, 2 tablets, all Samsung.

Note 1: 1 December 2016: The polls in this post are not displaying correctly due to a Discourse bug that should be fixed soon:


Android, and yes GW on Android would be pretty cool.

OS doesn’t have the ‘best’ reporting when it comes to knowing what your device is doing.

However, detection/separation of wifi and mobile data traffic would be important.

Thanks @Remah! Great poll!


I was an android user earlier but since the day I have started using iOS I have loved it even more than android.

We’d like to support iOS, but it seems there are some technical limitations with breaking down data usage per-app currently.
