Maestro vs. Smart SDR for iOS and Spots

I have the Maestro, and I also have an iPad running Smart SDR v2.2.2.  Both connect to my 6500 (individually - not at the same time).  Anyway, I love both interfaces when I'm not directly in front of my PC.  However I especially love DX Cluster and the ability to see spots on the iPad (or iPhone).  My question is, will this ever be available for the Maestro?  I never realized how useful it is until I started chasing DX for countries I don't have yet.  Marcus has done such a wonderful job for iOS.  Is there any chance the code can be migrated to whatever Windows platform runs the Maestro?  I think this will really enhance the Maestro.  Kudos again for such great radios and software!

We have been asking for Spots on the SSDR/W for years.  Marcus did a fabulous job with SSDR/iOS spots on the display and like you its my preferred DX Chasing Tool

I would prefer Spot on the SSDR/W first before SSDR/M as I never use the Maestro except for contesting as I personally find knobs too limiting when I keep 4-8 slices open to chase the rare ones.. YMMV

Either Way Spots on the more than SSDR/iOS would be greatly appreciated.  In fact, if they showed up on Maestro I might actually use it for DX.
