Although LC calls itself cross-platform, I despise the fact that commands
in the dictionary, particularly for mobile, have quirks that make it a
little different for Android than iOS.  If it wants to call itself
cross-platform, a term that is in the dictionary should work exactly the
same across all supported platforms.  I would also be more likely to invest
more into externals if they didn't focus on a single preferred OS rather
than looking at the market potential for LC devs to build x-plat apps.  LC
tools should all be required to be x-plat - period. /just one opinion.
