Continue Verse for Android app

In the Verse on Premises session at IBM Think, it was stated the goal is to drop the app and have users access their mail by opening a web browser and navigating to a url.  This creates several problems. In particular,  clicking to share an item, I need the Verse app to show as an option. I need a separate app icon on the phone from the browser app. I need offline access. I need a guaranteed consistent user experience of a single app that eliminates issues caused by using different browsers or different versions of the same browser.  When dependent upon a browser we lose control of managing what browser brand and version is used.

Keep supporting the Verse on Android app.

    We are not stopping the development of the native iOS / Android clients.

    The Verse On Premises Mobile experience ("installable" PWA soon to come) serves as a replacement for iNotes Ultralight - the historical web-based mobile mail and calendar experience, this is not a replacement for the native Verse iOS and Verse Android applications.

    I have several departments of the Dutch government in my portofolio and they are not pleased by this terrible message. Some have disabled the browser for security purposes. Please don't discontinue the Verse mobile app.

    This would be a horrible decision if this is true.

    I think it is a bad step to move away from an app just when world is adopting this strategy.  Yes, the offline functionality is critical.  Also, I have no control over which web browser is being used or what version.  This makes supporting users more difficult.  Then there is the convenience of having a single icon on the screen dedicated to Versemail in the same way I have an app dedicated to gmail and outlook and yahoo mail.

    Agree that the mobile app should be continued.  Many people require real time notification of new emails and offline access to email, which the web browser cannot provide.

    Dropping the app is only an option when offering adequate alternatives. Adequate requires at a minimum full offline access.

    Mobile access to mail when offline is critical. Example (of many) -- stand on the Heathrow Express platform after arriving via an international flight and bring-up your reservation with the bar code for scanning, but you can't get a WiFi connection reliably on the platform or train. Thus, you are unable to display your ticket. The conductor has to work with you to research your ticket which impedes his efficiency. Whether web or a mobile app, making offline access available is necessary.
