sorry, it’s not the first JFX app on the AppStore…. We released our JFX based 
remote control app on 03/05/2014 ;)


Concerning your retro game: It’s good to see other JFX based apps on the 
AppStore…but…. such a simple ping pong game isn’t more than a tech demo because 
you don’t use complex graphic rendering (only one color, no complex CSS, …) If 
you take a look at our real app „UltraMixerRemote“ you’ll see that JavaFX on 
iOS currently isn’t really good. The main points are: rendering artifacts and 
poor rendering performance (try on a iPhone4)…. I reported the rendering 
performance issue on 05/07/2013 (!) on JFX JIRA but no one of Oracle is 
interested to fix the issue :(

SoIMO  currently you can’t really use JFX and RoboVM for real world apps on iOS

Best regards,
