I take it, from the questions, that you’re considering an iPhone app

That’s a fair answer. Thanks for responding.
I figured I’d point out that you can write software for Android in Ruby,
though. Aside from the Ruboto JVM and frameworks like Titanium, there’s
also SL4A (Scripting Layer For Android), which I have found a touch

Please note though that the iPhone application will be entirely

I thought that might be the case – it often is for Web services that
have iPhone applications associated with them. I was mostly just
about the reasons for iPhone in particular.
Having said that, if all goes well and there’s significant demand for
an Android or Blackberry application (or any other platform) then I’d

Whether I’d “demand” an Android application depends on whether I would
find this mysterious service useful, of course. Anyway, good luck with
your endeavor, and thanks again for taking the time to reply.
