VLC W8 640x325According to various reports in the past as well as hints by the developer, it was suggested that VLC for Windows Phone is pretty close to seeing a release. In fact the reports had stated that the app for Windows Phone could be released this month, but unfortunately till now we have yet to see the app making its way to Windows Phone handsets.

Well as it turns out the app has been slightly delayed. No word on what’s with the delay, but for now Windows Phone users will just have to remain patient. The good news is that if you’tre a Windows 8.1 user, the app seems to be closer to being launched. Apparently there were still some issues that the developers had yet to address, which is what they’re doing now, before they release it to the public.

According to one of the developers, Thomas Nigro, he wrote on his Twitter account that there are “still some things to fix. We’ve got delay on WP. We prefer to ship a good version instead of a boggy one.”

Unfortunately Nigro did not mention when exactly will the app be seeing a release, but we suppose that we’d much rather wait for an app that works properly out of the box, as opposed to a buggy one that would just need to be fixed, thus wasting the time of its users who might not be able to get much out of it. Either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for the launch of the Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 VLC app, so check back with us at a later date for the details.
