Hi Roger,

It’s simply no way to achieve 100% of cross platform ability as long as some features available, say, on the native Xcode’s iOS platform are not on the native Android SDK/NDK/JNI side and vice-versa ! Instead of complaining about this fact and, again, instead of limiting the cross platform ability of LiveCode to the less commun denominator of the different platforms LC covers, Edinburgh and external providers (Monte, …) extends it, each time it can be reliable and useful with special targeted features on one or an other platform and, gracefully, it’s, IMHO, the most we can get for staying as productive as possible from all of these beloved LC cookers ;D
