What if cost is a concern? All these apps that assume free and easy

£12.50/pm including a free mid-range phone and that's more than enough
for me. Including a phone my wife pays £7.50.

Bearing in mind I live on the edge of London (the largest city in the
world?) and I *regularly* have connectivity problems on my phone. Both
over the phone network, and over home broadband ...

Sure, sure. In general, SaaS's advantages tend to benefit developers and its inconveniences tend to fall on users.

I don't want to speak for Barton too much, but his email pretty clearly indicates that he's in a prototyping stage where it's important to get the app working quickly. Unless offline functionality is important for the demonstration, SaaS is the right way to go since he won't have to do any work porting LilyPond.
