I'm also in favor for BTSAP. I personally find the protocol 
fairly sane and like Kevin mentioned there is also already 
the SAP server implementation in the osmocom repositories.

I didn't even think of this option so far, but it's a good

I totally agree. I think the reason I did it this way was 
for simplicity because when the reader and the SAP interface 
are activated manually subsequently, the ATR command will already
have it's reply. If it's not done this way the mobile 
application would have to wait for it to complete because 
the process is fairly slow. But the cleaner way would be 
app_mobile.c. I can work on that but will likely need some 
time due to various other commitments at the moment.

Kind regards
