How exactly does runrev for ipad/iphone work?

An NDA was signed prior to all that
Apple-we-do-evil-but-it-is-beautiful-evil stuff.

It is not that people want to keep potential customers in the dark, it is
that so far the community does not know what is happening except for the
fact that RunRev team is in contact with Apple.

All we can say is that currently the way that Revolution Desktop works,
meaning, how the standalones are generated and how the engine works will not
work with Apple Agreement, so a change is needed on the engine. This is
information that is not related to the current fear from the 1.1.3 clause.
This is related to Apple preventing code compilation and execution at
runtime, this has be so since forever and RunRev was aware of it and
RevMobile will do things different than use a JIT compiler like it does now
on the Desktop.

So all in all, we can't tell you because we don't know.

If we knew we would not be able to tell but I believe that documentation
would be available.

Now, if someone in the community knows and I don't know, then, it is my
fault and and I am talking sh*t.
