Embarrasssing old bugs

Hi all, hi mothership,

a customer of mine asked me to help him, he needs to deliver an 
update to his existing app.

I hade been mentoring him, a complete newbie, about two years ago
and after a couple of months he had an app in the iOS store and in
the Google Paly store (or what this is called). Not too bad. :-)

And now I have to tell him that after 5 (FIVE!) years we still do not have 
"system date" etc. on Android!? 
As a result we cannot e.g. sort a datagrid by "sytem datetime" etc.

And that we still have no (LC typically easy) way of displaying a PDF on Android.

How embarrassing is this in 2020? 
If we want to get an even higher ranking than 36 on TIOBE, this should be fixed as 
soon as possible.

This is of course only my "not humble at all" opinion! :-)
