    There is only one question burning in everyone’s mind right now:

    Is there an android version?

    • SamSam says:

      As usual, Android users get shafted at the start. But, as an Android user and developer, I’ve come to recognize the reason for that: Android users may make up the majority of phone users, they make up a far smaller slice of the people who buy apps.

        I’m not a dev, but I think the bigger problem would be making the app support the hundreds of handsets running different OS versions- that will cost a lot of money.

        Then they will need to retool the hardware, more money.

      The question in my mind was:

       Does this thing avoid being stepped on?

    Hobo1: “Let’s give a friendly welcome to this new robo.”
    Bender: “What did you call me?!”
    Hobo2: “A Robo. You know … a robot hobo.”
    Bender: “Oh, ok, I thought you said romo.”

    This is a great way to get your smartphone stolen :-)

  6. Romo has been racking up the miles around the Freak’n Genius office. It’s how I spy on my team and get the inside scoop from closed door meetings.

    Seriously, the office feels like the future is sitting right here, smiling at us.

    It is a good concept I have only one question: When you have already connected your iphone with the rolling plataform …Is it possible to receive calls ? ..are you able to pick the phone up with the secondary cellphone or ipad or computer?
