We use iOS.  If somebody were willing to do the work of bringing LDC up to date and maintaining it maybe we could support the work, or at least contribute to it.

I have a bunch of patches I was working on a few weekends ago. I'm committed to do the android thing first though and lately been doing dpp.

but I already have a decent idea of what needs to be done from working on the dmd versions.
