Hi Wendy,

I don't know if you have an android device to try out stuff with...
But I have used a client called '2X' which you can search for in the 
play store.

I suggest having a play with this and see how it works for you, see if 
there are limitations that you cannot work around...

An Android interface obviously is a touch interface, and the 2X client 
provides some gestures that you may want, or may not want...

Something you might want to consider is making the Omnis application 
full screen?

If your running it locally for testing, you might require the computer 
to allow remote desktop connections, without Network Level Authentication.
