Can I develop my IOS app away from my home computer?

Hi Howard,

You can use Dropbox for this. Compile an app with one button. The button is linked to a stack op Dropbox. Put the app on your iPhone. Use LC to edit the stack on Dropbox. Refreshing the app on your iPhone gives you the latest changes. Scott Rossi put this on the list a few months ago.
