At this point I don't have any plans to rewrite the scraper in Java/Android (it would also need to be heavily redesigned, too, I suppose.) I'll keep the suggestion in mind, though.

I think this is where the difference lies between mobile and desktop.

Designing a mobile touch application that would just come close to CRW is IMHO almost impossible. And if, it would be never as usable as the desktop version (Just think an office app on a mobile device).

On a semi-related note, Its precisely this Microsoft believes people will do with windows 8 -on the desktop-. And to make matters even worse, they have adopted a stance of "you'll get used to it and you'll like it" attitude.

Sorry for this small rant, but i've been trying to reason with some folks over that the Building Windows 8 forum (which is in no way related to this thread), on precisely why tablets and desktops are totally different form factors/user experiences, and how one should not be forced unto the other.

I've been looking at Windows 8 with a great deal of suspicion for this reason, too.

Windows 8 is the Trojan horse and last chance to for MS to get a foothold in the emerging non desktop market.

The own the desktop, so use this to get people "used" to some form of experience they then also expect on other devices. It's kind windows everywhere only in reverse :)

Windows 8 will be great, fast and run on ARM nobody will admit it's good - but 10.8 comes out with sandboxed-only Mac apps and Siri, everyone is riding unicorns to work!
