A "native" (read: Cider) client would be amazing. As you know, Cryptic etc. are notoriously tight lipped on the subject. But I did email Transgaming a few months back to suggest they might find a customer if they approach them :-P

Ah interesting. Very interesting. I'd go digging, but as luck would have it my Internet connection went down and I'm currently 3G'ing on my iPad. In two days I've lost STO and my Internet - first world problems hey.
