My Palm Pre has been falling apart at the seams for the last six months, and my cautious optimism for HP to hit the HP Pre 3 and related devices out of the park have slowly been deteriorating. I'm no longer confident in webOS's chances to thrive and succeed, even with HP's financial muscle, and I'm tired of being shackled to an ecosystem that is comparatively a barren wasteland of app development, as well as being locked into a device that has aged terribly. The webOS experience - although charming, simple, and intuitive in its own right - is no longer a compelling enough draw for me to stick around and wait it out for another several months for HP to maybe or maybe not debut a new slab/keyboard-less webOS phone.
My upgrade is up in a week, and I'll probably be switching over to an EVO 3D or a Nexus S 4G. Your Checkbook app is literally the only thing that has made or broken my entire experience on webOS, and I was wondering if you were still in the process of migrating your app over to Android? I would hate to have to throw down money for a competing finance management app that I would have to learn over again.
Also, do you have any projection when your budget system will finally leave beta? It's a smart idea, but has been lacking on a number of key features for some time now.
Thanks again, and I appreciate all the hard work you put into everything!
