My iPad app was designed in RunRev (as are most of my ideas) and then built in ObjC in xCode with xib files done in Interface Builder. The XML/PLIST creator and editor for all of the pList files was built in RunRev as well. The logic is pretty much the same but the syntax of course is very different.

I use pLists for the databases (4 of them) and in my ObjC code I use pretty much the same switch/case and if/thens and repeats. It is the API calls that are very different. The biggest problem I have coming from RunRev is Global variables (I have to use NSUserDefaults for a lot of my needs) and poor string manipulation(string to integer, string to methods, parameters, etc., what I would do for 'put word 2 to -1 of it into gVariable'). I don't know how many times I have said 'If only this were in rev! I would know just the quickest way to do this and be done by now.' Still this entire app was thought out, designed, built and debugged and tested in under four weeks, just in time for inclusion in the app store grand opening. That's pretty cool. 

My next app will be designed in RunRev and then I will build it in ObjC (unless RevMobile is done) and will have a RunRev backend on my on-rev server. I foresee many levels of integration like that in my apps, no matter what happens with RevMobile.
