I doubt it. I don't think we even really looked at it. Our software isn't the kind that benefits from the "discovery" of a marketplace, we have to actually market it and people would generally just download it directly from us.

Actually, thinking about it, not so odd. I can remember rushing down to Woollies to buy a new Airfix every time I got my pocketmoney. It was what you did.
Don't worry - they're all at it - Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, RIM. Even the TV manufacturers have been setting up closed markets for apps on the new generation of internet-connected TVs (and in the process have plumbed new depths of God-awful UI, hilariously disfunctional development environments and general all-round cackhandedness).
I'm here at the field....I fight for my meals...I get my Yak into my living......
I imagine reflection may be an issue (as usual) but the new Nexus 7 tablet could make a superb platform - size, resolution, 12 cores, gps (or bluetooth to an external gps), excellent battery life. Great price also.
Well, I've now used SkyDemon on a GPS in anger (as opposed to just SD Light for PC planning) over a 3 day flying trip, and I am completely sold.
I can absolutely see why people have been raving about it, and Tim and his team have yet another set of congratulations from here for having done a fantastic job. I have a 1st Generation 7" Galaxy Tab that would be perfect for in cockpit use, so I can't wait.
PS If the team aren't working on an Android version, then Tim is the biggest tease since Suzanne Gregson, the Terror of the Fourth Form.
