strategic questions

We were looking for answers, but we found more questions:

Web vs Mobile?
This is mostly discussed in the previous post. The main argument revolves around the idea that web-interface users are a different audience than mobile users and would lead the project into a different direction away from a solution suitable for mobile users.
iPhone vs Android?
Although both of us use Android devices we assume that there are more potential buying customers on iPhone. Personally, i also prefer learning Objective-C than Java.
Standalone Client vs Client-Server?
This is a new topic that we need to discuss further. One argument in favor of a Standalone Client is that offline operation must be possible. I believe the advantages of a Client-Server solution are that we can reuse existing server components and thus produce a prototype faster. Also i believe that server synchronization is crucial. My data must be accessible from anywhere.
App Sales vs Subscriptions?
Another topic that's not hashed out yet. I believe that server subscriptions are more profitable. Zhang Weiwu has been burned by a failed attempt at making subscriptions work in a previous project. I think we need more input on this question.
Start with the core vs a peripheral component?
The idea of starting to build a peripheral component instead of the main client is that it would be an opportunity to learn on something less critical before diving into the important parts.
Start with Front and Back-end vs only Front-end?
For a Client only solution we of course need at least a minimalistic back-end, but for a Client-Server solution we can reuse server components and thus focus on the Client Front-end

due to time-constraints of getting this published, not all statements here are verified, and may need some clarifying.
