I finally bite the bullet as I'd decided Rev was going to introduce iPhone
compatibility about as fast as it's going to do introduce a 4.0 Linux and
Mac OS Classic engines so I asked Santa for some iPhone programming books,
and because I was good last year, under the Christmas tree I found:
Programming in Objective-C 2.0 2nd Edition - Stephen G Kochan - Addison
I like this book because "The book does not assume previous experience with
either C or object-oriented programming languages".
iPhone Application Development for Dummies 2nd Edition - Neal Goldstein -
iPhone Application Development in 24 hrs - John Ray & Sean Johnson - SAMS
And so NOW Rev announce that they are going to do iPhone support.
I'm not complaining, just the opposite, I wish I'd learn; I should have
bought the iPhone books ages ago, then Rev would have announced iPhone
support ages ago less 2 weeks, and so I'd be doing iPhone apps in Rev by
So RevMobile release date will be directly proportional to whether I open
the above books or not. If I don't bother opening the books because I
believe RevMobile is just around the corner, then it will be like a family
vacation,... are we there yet.... If I expend blood, sweat and tears working
my way through the books, shortly after finally getting my App to work,
RevMobile will come out and I'll be able to reproduce the same in one tenth
If anyone wants Rev 4.0 Linux or Classic engines please email me off-list to
persuade me spend time and money to go down that path - Rev will then make
an announcement 2 weeks later ;-)
