okay... "just an observation" --- just a simple, purely non bias observation. Okay.. a few of them.

1) android process was short, quick, simple. The instructions were short and simple. It just seemed fast and much EASIER than I thought it would be. (much of this has to do with the vb mobile suite)... but the things I did... all went smoothly for the android app.

2) the iphone process.... well,
a) the download zip file for the app is 12 meg vs. the 2 meg for android (WTF, 6 times as big?)
b) vb tells me i'm the only one with an issue of downloading it... turns out it was trendmicro causing an issue ( firewall was doing something)
c) ios developer ($100 bucks) vs. android developer ($25 bucks)
d) amount of time to get all the stuff filled out and signed in, etc. etc. ios= 2 different logins and still waiting for some approval and still much more to fill out AFTER i get approved vs. a few minutes for android

hopefully, the iphone app goes faster/quicker/easier after the approval. as with android, a few minutes to upload and BAMM... it was in the market place.

so.... the TF iphone app is coming... stay tuned

From what I read it can take up to 6 weeks for the App to be approved by Apple to appear on their AppStore. So it looks like those with an iOS device will have to wait around 6 weeks before they can enjoy what us Android users have instant access to.

Anyway, thanks very much This will make it much easier for us to use T-F when on mobile, and perhaps act as a good advert.
