    Trying to learn the iPhone SDK right now to build an app for my checkbook site. The process is pretty slow going as I'm not used to the syntax at all in Objective-c and interfacing with the GUI side of the app is a bit of a struggle.

    The Palm WebOS SDK just came out today and I've downloaded it and taken a look at it and it seems pretty straightforward. I would like to build an app for the Pre right now, but I won't actually be able to submit it until the Fall when the app store starts taking submissions.

    I just know it would be much easier to build my app for the Pre, i just won't be able to do anything with it for a few more months.

    It'll probably take me that long just to build an iphone app i'm comfortable with :o

    i need more time in the day to learn shit :(

    This is just a rant, sorry :run:

    Right now i'm just going through tutorials.

    I should probably do a few more before I start to complain too much. The main issues i'm having now are just how to have a Tab Bar application going and have multiple UI elements on each view. For example, a UITableView and some UILabels on the same view.

    It's just a learning curve thing. I remember being this confused when I first started trying to mess with PHP. i'll get it eventually :o

    :bowdown: to you good sir. I want to learn iPhone apps too but I just can't get it off the ground. Need some time off to sit and properly read some tutorials.

    Interesting. I'm not sure how much i'd trust something like that though. I guess I need to read more into it.

    It's a steep learning curve, much harder if you haven't done alot of javascript.
