As I said, not clear *or* not consistent, depending on the name.
MonoTouch is not clear. There are many touch devices, you can't guess it's
for iOS from its name.
Mono for Android *is* clear, but not consistent (with the MonoTouch name).
MonoDroid was more consistent ("Mono+short name", no space or multiple
words). Or for clarity over brevity, MonoTouch should have been called "Mono
for iOS", to fit with "Mono for Android".
