Hello Jeremy,

I was wondering if you ever heard something of Bob since posting this.

In case you didn't don't you think that it would be a good idea to release
it to the community (or was this done already ?)

Would make sense to think that if Bob disappeared into thin air that he
wouldn't worry too much about an app for a platform for which he's not
developing anymore in the first place...
