Why No Native iOS/Android Apps?
Two reasons. One, native apps are not needed as Charter Rode is simple and easy to use. To make Charter Rode feel like a native app on your iOS/Android hand-held or tablet device, sign in to Charter Rode on your device and navigate to the home screen. From there add a bookmark to your home screen and your iOS/Android device will create a native app for you.
Second, the fees charged through app stores are as high as 30% and we are doing everything we can to keep the Charter Rode fees as low as possible. As there is no splashy user interface or interactions required, there is no need to add another 30% tax to use in-app payments. Besides, the Charter Rode protocol is an open protocol, and anyone may build their own user interface. Check out the Developer docs if you are interested in embedding Charter Rode into your app!
