I felt I would break this out since I have seen people wonder about how successful Square Enix's iOS games gave been.
For lots more information about FF4:TAY's 3D remake on iOS and more about Square Enix on iOS, see Goli's excellent thread here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=683165

He kind of implies one more remake is in the works as well:
-Along with TAY's smartphone version, Tokita is working on two other titles. One is all new and should be announced early next year, while the other should be announced at next year's TGS.
