[PD] Pd in cross-platform frameworks

I'm curious if anyone here has tried building Pd apps with Juce? It's a
commercial license, but free for use in open source projects, and supports
iOs and Android. I've heard the iOs and Android support is ok if you don't
need full "nativity".  It's definitely easy to work with for audio apps and
well documented. I've mucked with a bit and had mostly good experiences,
but not tried using Pd with it yet.
