You can now deploy to Android from Mac, Windows, and with LiveCode 
v5.5.2 even Linux.

For iOS, Apple is aware that 87% of the world uses Windows but provides 
no tools for that platform.  Since their EULA prohibits using OS X on 
anything other than "Apple branded hardware", it would seem Apple 
prefers that most of the world devote their time to developing 
exclusively for Android.  ;)

I suspect this will eventually change, but in the meantime the only 
legal way to deploy to iOS is to buy another computer from Apple.
