    I agree with @Sith, bring the app back please, browsing the website on cell phone is not fun.

    The mobile website works well - concentrate your efforts into developing that further rather than fragmenting your resorts in OS specific apps...

    Honestly, with the new progressive app framework I'm working on - the mobile app becomes rather irrelevant. Push messaging, notifications to desktops / mobile phones, live updates via socket.io, live "blogging" can all be done with the progressive web app, on desktops, mobile devices, amazon fire tv etc...

    Key is to avoid the "jank" that web based rendering suffers from. Can be done easily with newer frameworks and some discipline.

    The trick will be to package this with a wrapper for people to download in an app store - this is the current trend anyways.

    Yeah, that's what I figured is a better path - so the app basically just points at the website? Then you concentrate on the website and all app users can benefit, as well as anyone browsing on a mobile in a sufficiently up to date browser?

    Something like that.

    The "website" can be / will be a bundle of scripts and formatting. Which will call on the backend for updates etc. The scripts can be packaged into an android or IOS shell.

    Think of it as static templates with dynamic data.
