Yeah, I've been BEGGING for Mobile Clients for BOTH Android & iOS for YEARS now! This is the same response I've gotten every time. Actually what I've had in the past has been MORE committal than these even... "an Android app is in the works, an iOS app is in the works!" Still NOTHING.
I think they don't understand the WHOLE SPECTRUM of applications/workflows that a dedicated Odrive Mobile Client would be used for!
I've never had it confirmed, but my guess would be they think that all of the platforms have invested the time and $$ into their own Mobile platforms ALREADY, and as long as you've got them synced into Odrive somewhere, eventually it all ends up there, so a Mobile App/Platform would be maybe unnecessarily "redundant!"
But JUST like craftingrama's explanation above is 1 of the easiest/simplest applications it would provide, in MY case, both internally for my companies and externally with my clients, we would have about a DOZEN different automations & workflows if we could possibly access, search, sync, and even automate activities/actions within our entire cloud storage porfolio using generic Intergration/Automation tools like IFTTT & Zapier, and specific I/A tools that are built into many of the top Marketing Automation platforms, for example, like Active Campaign or Infusionsoft!
In MY own personal brand building case, it would probably double or triple the efficiency of my "Production/Publishing" activities - film, video, marketing, writing, audio, etc... Being able to interface with my "Content Team" in the Philippines FASTER than we currently do, would have ripple effects across our business, our revenues, our clients businesses, etc...
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, for the love of all that's holy and in the hopes of saving the last few brown hairs on my head from turning GRAY, make this happen and make it a priority!!!
If for no other reason, than the MASSIVE amounts of Mobile Market Share you could literally STEAL from the biggest players in the industry - AMAZON, GOOGLE, DROPBOX, MICROSOFT, APPLE!!!!! Are you joking me?!
If the #1 goal of ANY mobile platform is User Access and ability to Push anything you want to your users, then outside of a Social Media Platform, you guys are missing a HUGE, MONUMENTAL opportunity to literally steal a MASSIVE chunk of each of these major company's Mobile User Engagement & Activity!
YOU COULD INSTANTLY HAVE 100's of MILLIONS OF EYEBALLS looking through your "lenses" and could therefore put anything you wanted in front of them! a Freemium Mobile Aggregate Platform Model? $100's of Millions of Dollars just waiting to be scooped up by someone and you've already done the MAJORITY of the hard work with your current infrastructure!
You know... stuff like that!
