Hi Dirk et. al.

First, sorry for my late answer, but "better late than never", I guess...

Here goes my 2 cents:

- Regarding Subsurface-mobile, I must say I'm not a heavy user. I see 
it's potential, but (call me old fashioned), I always have my laptop 
around and I hate using apps. Nevertheless, from the responses we've got 
so far, there seems to be a fair number or people interested on our 
mobile version so its development must continue...

- As for the desktop version, I'd vote for (4). I'll continue to give my 
(small) contributions on the translation, manual and testing. Still on 
top of my todo list for Subsurface is my template for printing - I'd say 
that's the feature I'm still missing on our program. As soon as  have it 
ready, I'd be happy to place it on a public repository. Maybe that will 
help other users.

In short, I'm another one voting for  (3) and (4).

All the best:
