Loren,
You missed my comment about one size fits all. A app written for a 
mobile device will take advantage of options not available to a web 
interface. It is far better to use a app written for the platform. For 
the web platform HTML5 may be a good choice. The Web Transceiver talks 
to the ASL network via IAX.
