Actually I have two long running apps (15 years) working exactly has Richard describes. Indeed is has so many advantages. I love being on SKYPE with one of our volunteers who may have a small complaint about the UX or wants to added something to the back end database… I quicklyl fix it and just tell them 

"OK, close that window and click the button again" 

It fetches a fresh stack/data from dbase on the server, and what they wanted is suddenly there without any upgrade process.

Initially I always get this "wow, that is so cool!" response from them… 

It would be awesome if we could do this on mobile.  We talked about the before.. I think you can do this on Android.

    I can't say enough good things about LC's ability to run downloaded 
    stacks.  It's one of the most powerful features in the engine, and 
    perhaps the most under-appreciated.
    It's nearly everything you want with browser-based delivery, but able to 
    handle app designs that go far beyond the browser, with richer features 
    and optionally greater security as well.
