As someone who has actually created an application intended for public usage with Construct, it'd be a shame to lose the Application runtime. I would very much like to see it expanded, though. Or even have some bugs fixed, like have actually working dropdown boxes.
If you're interested in the app, you can find it here:http://planar-studios.com/?nav=2&view=amkvc
I haven't posted about it here since I doubt many people here would have any kind of use for it.
