Bounce Metronome for Mac and Multi Platform

Please see the more recent update to this post.

The most frequent question I get asked about Bounce is: is there is a version for a Mac, or will there be one in the future? The answer is No, and Maybe. Find out more and add your name to the wish list here:  /Mac, Mobile and other Multi Platform FAQs

Anyway, those of you who added yourself to the wish list early on might wonder why you haven't heard from me yet. The thing is, though I'm keen to do this project, I haven't had a chance to work on it.
Was hoping to start on it some time this year but just haven't had the chance to do it yet. One of the main reasons for the delay is that the new update of Bounce Metronome 4.3 has taken at least six or seven months longer than expected. .
The Mac version would probably take several months from learning the language and coding environment to first simple app, so I need to have lots of time to work on it to do it properly. Also I have two other major projects to do before then, so realistically it's not likely to happen before next year now.
