I know you've mentioned before that the native scroller isn't working, 
but can you tell us a bit more about how it's not working?

We have so many people deploying to iOS that if it's broken it needs to 
be fixed, and if it's not broken we should be able to come up with a way 
for you to deliver a smooth, native-scrolling behavior for your users, 
with bounce-back and all the other nuances iOS users expect.

On Android the native scroller works very well, giving us the standard 
behavior users expect.

Let's see if we can ensure that LC apps for iOS work as well.
