    Android is the most searched term, confirming its popularity….yet there is still no Android Tablet App for Safari To Go………? Why the delay? I’d really like access to my safari online books from my Xoom the same method iPad users get to enjoy. Thank you~ Hope you are taking to heart your own lists….

      Good point, though Android is still *well* below iOs among visitors to our website (standard or mobile-friendly, and independent of iPad app traffic). We are planning an Android app for later this year, but I don’t have a date yet. Thanks for the feedback!
