I think an app could bring in more attention to the site, but someone would have to make it. Personally, I don't have much experience with this, but it could be a fun project to learn. I'd hate to make a wrapper around the site, because this requires so much extra work and small changes to the site could ruin it. I'd like to add optimization to the actual game, make it use less network. Add extra features, etc etc etc. So what I'd want to even attempt to do this is a restless API. Basically, a web interface you can access by making requests towards it, which can be used to build the local view on the phone. There is some of this, but things like getting the cards on the board, who's turn it is, watch game or view game list etc, basically all you need to use the site properly without having to process and interpret the html etc.

Someone I talked about it to wondered about ads. Not sure I'd add anything like that, but an idea could be to do so and donate most, if not all of it, back to the site. That way we could keep the site alive longer too. :)

Anyway, this is just some thoughts from an egocentric person who only cares about himself.

Most losses by far!
