Don't be afraid to raise attention to worthwile interviews (even if its bordering advertisement).
I think the whole IA-app-anouncement problems are due to the high profile IP owned by Disney and everything that comes with such products.
Rest assured FFG has a very high interest in releasing an app for Imperial Assault (it trippled Descent sales), they have been working on it and they can't say anything in public about it unless Disney gave them green light to do so, else lawsuits would ensue.
I think they mentioned that big boxes take about a year to make/ship from start to finish. I also believe they mentioned starting it in Oct (I watched this yesterday so my memory on it is hazy), so we might see Jabba's in Oct/Nov possibly.
They also claim it's their best one yet (I'm inclined to believe them, campaign/game elements usually get more refined over time).
