René,

Answer: Yes, Rodeo will support access to the iPad APIs that make playing music, etc. possible in a web app. We are constrained by what Apple will allow, but thus far it appears to be a wide-open playing field.

That said, Rodeo is being developed and will be released in stages with incremental improvements much as tRev has. Not everything will be available from day one, but because of this, day one will come quickly.

Our Kickstart program and sales of tRev are starting to create a development budget for us. The more of that we can do, the better. Also, we have been approached about contract work where we build Rodeo apps for others.

Many thanks to the Kickstarters, tRev buyers and iPad clients. May they multiply! We may need to create some Rodeo developers quickly so they can help us with our contracting!

Best,

Jerry Daniels

On the iPad itself you will be able to edit the code for your Rodeo-built web app if you have edit permissions, which as the author of the app you would have.
