Here's a copy of a message I sent to comp.lang.scheme which gives a few additional bits of information about Gambit REPL.

> "Gambit REPL" is a complete version of Gambit including the
> interpreter, debugger and built-in library (but not the compiler).
> The standard REPL is provided and also a script editor.  Scripts can
> be saved, attached to function keys, and the "main" function of the
> application can be redefined to customize the application to your
> needs.  Applications can be debugged remotely by telneting to the
> device from a desktop machine.
> The application is sold for $0.99 as a demonstration that you can
> distribute on the App Store paid applications written in Scheme and
> containing an interpreter, something that wasn't clear with previous
> versions of the App Store developer agreement.
> A version of Gambit REPL for Android is not planned (by me).  The
> Gambit Scheme system compiles fine on Android (for example see
> https://github.com/seoushi/gambit-android-example), but the user
> interface layer would have to be changed and tested, and I don't own
> an Android device.  If someone wants to try porting Gambit REPL to
> Android let me know and I can help.  The sources of Gambit REPL for
> iOS are in the examples/iOS subdirectory of the Gambit source
> distribution.
