> As I noted in my closing comments in my second post, if one has a desire to make R's functionality available on smartphones (iPhone, Android, etc.) or iPad-class devices, then a client/server approach may be the most efficient means to do so. That approach also avails you of more powerful computing platforms than the client side mobile devices have, at least at present, which will also limit aspects of portable functionality.

Indeed, the client/server approach is what is used in MatLab Mobile,
which is now on sale in the app store.

If matlab can do it, then surely the R community can as well.
