For the past few months, I’ve been exploring the fascinating world of iPhone development. I have several application ideas and am working pretty hard on getting something to market. My first app will be free, though I hope to work up to a level where I can develop a solid paid app eventually. I’m enjoying learning Objective-C. It’s a mind bender in a lot of ways. Having to handle memory usage, for example. That gets annoying pretty quickly.
My timing has been good since Terralien just launched its own full-stack iPhone development service last week. I’ve enjoyed developing solid Rails-based APIs for iPhones to interact with. I’m looking forward to flexing the skills I’m building on new projects. Learning is fun. The only difficulty is finding the time to learn everything I want to. It’s a never-ending pursuit.
