Nice to see some progress, but when are we going to get some help from the IDE on debugging for iOS? I find the "put" thing (writes to the Console) pretty much a blunt instrument - or have others evolved a more sophisticated debugging strategy? Before you suggest it, I think I've got beyond testing in desktop mode just to as to be able to trace the execution of my code, since most of the important stuff relates directly to iOS. If I did try to prolong testing within the LC IDE then I would have to rethink my code pretty drastically, writing handlers that hide/simulate anything that can only be executed in iOS. I just hope I don't have to rethink my code design in this way for the next app - I really want to see debugging info coming directly out of apps running on the iOS Simulator. I don't see why the next version can't be engineered to (at least) trap execution errors and output meaningful text about them to the console.
Ah well, next time??
