Can we assume from this response that an Android/iPhone app and/or compatible portal sites aren't being developed at present?
If not, whilst not a surprise given previous update/roadmap problems we've all had, I'd like to know why the two OS's which hold 52.5% and 15% respectively of the total market have been ignored, whilst a RIM and MS app, which combined only account for 12.5% of the market, has been taken ahead. (Table 2: http://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=1848514).
Is it yet another case of ideas only being floated within your development room?
Yeah, well what happened to the Blackberry app? I told you well over a year ago that we needed a Blackberry app, and if memory serves me correctly, you stated there would be one out by 4th quarter last year and said it would work with everything.
Believe it or not, the world does NOT revolve around the !@#$%^&* iPhone (Vinu - feel free to fill in the missing word yourself).
Or is this just a case of more crappy support for SCP? Hey - while we are at it, how about getting the SCP wiki up to date along with the SCP road map (lets try to make it accurate to).

To know the difference between mobile webapp Vs native app, read this and the other numerous resources on the internet.
Regarding the roadmap & the wiki, we will update it next week.
