[OT-Rodeo] Still waiting for the aha moment

I downloaded Rodeo a couple of days ago and have spent a little time  
using Transfer and playing around with it.

I guess I'm struggling with the definition of what an "app" is.  To  
me, an app is a fully functional program that provides an interface  
for the user to interact with, logic to manipulate user input, the  
ability to store and retrieve data, etc but all I see in Rodeo is a  
way to lay out web pages and perform a few basic actions, certainly no  
data retrieval/storage functionality. Do I have to learn another  
language to implement the logic and data storage behind the web pages?

I hope I'm missing something or that it's early days yet and there's a  
lot more to come in Rodeo because right now it doesn't come close to  
providing me with the ability to implement an "app" by my definition  
and I really want to  experience that "aha" moment!
