Hi,

Don't let them tell you otherwise. The 8S is a terrific phone and HTC did a great job.

The problem you describe may not be possible now (due to a lack of a developer solution), but it is not an inherent limitation in the platform.

It should be possible given the developer investment, there's nothing in the API preventing it from happening.

I realize this isn't a very good answer practically speaking.
