I’ve just read the email about this and have instantly transported back to 2003, when someone developed a text editor app for Microsoft Smartphone 2002 and we all thought that it was the most amazing … thing…..ever.

tremendously successful in markets currently underserved by the more
established competitors like Android.”
As Firefox OS applications can not be monetized as of this writing, the
