It is not as seamless as you require, but I just wanted to point that if
you import your desktop account structure into the app first, your app
exports should import seamlessly into GnuCash desktop.

The points you raise about multi device usage are valid ones, ones which
are working towards solving, albeit slowly. I hope you find something that
meets your needs in the meantime.
