True, except that web was sold as 'working' whereas Android was clearly in development. It is web that screwed me and that should have been, IMO a priority to be fixed because it is being toted as a working deployment option and it clearly is not.  Web happened to be the most important thing to me.

It is good to hear that Android has major updates. I wish they would have said that in their email.
