I'm not certain the Apache web page is responsive for presentation on a smartphone.

I think a drill-down to license text may be appropriate, provided with suitable formatting
and also with a link if that isn't part of the license text already.  You might also need
a NOTICE if your executable depends on anything requiring NOTICE in executables.  

I assume there is nothing that compels your making source code available.  Otherwise there's
that to deal with as well, though not on account of the ALv2 with respect to your executable
distribution. 

Are you distributing via an app store?  So users can't actually redistribute it themselves
in most cases?

> I'm distributing an executable deliverable, and in the "About" screen I list the 13 line
boilerplate from the bottom of http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.  However, in section
4a of the license I see that I'm obligated to "give" a copy of the license along with the
application.  Does this mean I should put the entire license into my About screen?
