Yes, as I suggested too, this is probably not the appropriate forum to post such questions.

I tried to say this in an inoffensive way as possible because we are all human and make simple mistakes.

I wish Amno all the best with their JavaFX app and I would suggest they check-out the products of Gluon when it comes to porting the app to mobile.

Their URL is http://gluonhq.com
