Please comment for any other types of wallets.

For someone who is not an expert on details it would be nice to sum up some comparsions for the different client options in the initial post.

What about a lightweight local client like DUB which has recently be released for digitalcoin?

I think people prefer the typical compiled binary.

A web thing is fine and all but the installation was a mess with Java.  I'm not sure there is much compatibility benefit outside of being easily portable to android.

Really it isn't a question.  I doubt many people even NXT users prefer the web interface.  I like it, but it took a bit to get working.  I'd also be afraid that it opens up more security issues being inside your web-browser + java based. 

If you are going to make a native client, make it look like copperlark or megacoin wallets.  Not all gray and generic looking.

The other problem is it is a bit weird for people to run a server and then use their webbrowser to access it.  That is a pretty big leap for a computer newbie. Even I had problems when I already had it running.  I just happen to know what the errors meant from being a dev.

I voted for GUI but I'm very comfortable using a webbased client as well. I just think people are more comfortable using "desktop" guis that why I voted for GUI.
However If we're going to have a GUI client it needs to be awesome. The worst about new coins is always that hidous qt-wallet Smiley

Haven't done much GUI in Java but I might whip up a python client if I find the time Smiley

If there is a choice to be made we must go for the GUI-app!

It will gather a much bigger audience that the NXT localhost web-client! We shouldn't even consider a similar client than NXT. Easy-to-use GUI-app that will attract the masses of crypto users!!

Independent from the technology underneath the client, it will be an easily installable client.

So either WebGUI or Java-GUI will be installed on the client through a simple install procedure. That will be our target for the NEM client. Source code which has to be compiled by the user is not a targeted solution.

Simple, easy, simple and easy resulting in an intuitive usable client for NEM. That should be our target line.

I slightly favor a webGUI since it has more flexibility in UX design than a 'platform'-specific GUI (Qt, Java SWT or .NET).

I voted for a web interface but I think it should be something in between.
I' m in favor for web GUI as it can be extended easelly using CSS JS and HTML
and additional modules(pages) with different functionality can be added in a fast way.

Also the design can be stiled with css to resemble a QT or native look and feel.
There is no need for a user to use a browser to open the web gui as it can
be implemented in a native or java HTML component.
