Fellow developers.  I am happy to announce that we got our first iPad app approved for the iTunes store.  It took 5 days to get through.

The app is free.  It is a companion app to a desktop service/product we provide for the vision testing market.  There is an in-app component to make the app do more, but there is a twist.  We are billing through the desktop app to make the mobile app get extended features.  The iPad app communicates with the desktop app to know if the purchase as been made.  You can probably guess what that means.

We used Monte's socket external for iOS to make the communication between the iPad and the desktop work.  We specifically use UDP for all communication.  It is extremely fast and reliable.  We could not be happier with Monte's work on that external.

This app may not be very popular with the kids, but our market is very excited about it.  You can see it from the following link:

If you are curious about the interoperability between iPad and desktops, feel free to download the desktop app from: 
My mind is racing with all the possibilities.

Best regards,
