I agree — I really like this approach and I’m glad to see someone developing an app around
it. I believe in users having control over their data, and part of that is letting them host
it wherever they want.

Good idea, but be careful not to run into the same issue with Apple that happened to several
Dropbox-compatible apps a few months ago. By embedding a Dropbox signup page (in a UIWebView)
that included options to register a paid account, they ran afoul of Apple’s restriction
against offering 3rd-party paid subscriptions in-app. Several apps had updates rejected due
to this, before Dropbox revised the landing page to include only free subscription plans.
