Dear ESRI,

I just read the article about this new app in ArcUser and I'm just wondering, when are you going to realize that the Android mobile market has taken over the iOS market?  I wish you would develop in Android first, and then iOS, or here's an idea....don't release any mobile software until you're ready to release it for both Android and iOS!!!  Releasing products for one OS is just ridiculous!! And on top of that, not making all mobile OS phone and tablets compatible!!  And why is it that the interface and functionality are different on both platforms?  Is this really a good software development practice?

All I'm asking is that you please consider your audience before releasing software that doesn't work!! Is this the future we have to look forward to from ESRI mobile products?
