Thank you very much for the first round of feedback!
There is now a proposal for a list of features that would define the
content of this cross-platform Wikipedia app v1.0:

Please let's discuss and agree on these features, if possible before the
end of Tuesday next week (this is a week from now). With this list the
development work can start.
That list will change for sure: there is an ongoing work to revamp the
mobile gateway with similar features, and we are doing this approach for
ports). Still, we need a basis to do the first steps.

26_Roadmap#Rationale describes an app that imho would be great to have
for the Wikimedia community and beyond. Warning: there is no feasibility
check done on those features yet. But if you like them we might be able
to get someone with the skills to investigate what is easy, what is
though but doable and all the rest.
Developing those features through iterations in a reference
specific platforms, hopefully requiring just a little extra work (as
opposed to rewriting for each platform).
Being an open source application developed openly may also help getting
some of these "community features" implemented in the many commercial
apps around, currently focusing only on read-only use cases. If the
features are cool and we give them the code for free...
