Not an expert on anything mobile. Those are just the points I can think of out of the top of my head:
* Handeling control input
* Storage size (global base scenery is about 100GB, osm2city it self requires significantly more)
* In some cases performance of the device. (Some are running it on a raspberry pi so it can clearly be run on low end hardware... but there are compromises to make, even new desktop machines can have their struggles under certain circumstances)
* Main issue is contributors tho. There needs to be someone who puts in the effort into making things run and maintaining the apps.
Be the change you wish to see in the world, be an ally to all! Love is the answer.

If everything is going against you, keep in mind that airplanes take off against the wind, not with it.
