Hi Aaron,

Welcome to this very low traffic mailing list and congrats on the 
release of your uLuas app.  I've met you once or twice (events in UL I 
believe).  Unfortunately I have no device to test uLuas on but I'm sure 
others on this list have.

Best of Luck with the app development and I hope to meet you again at 
events in Dublin in 2014.

Kind Regards,
