However i have felt like trying a bit of iOS development, i have vague ideas of an app to help people navigate the canals in the Midlands (canals being another interest of mine). So i installed Xcode then went through a "Hello World" exercise, the result you can see below running on an iPhone simulator. The app is very simple though is quite involved, its a bit more complicated than writing
10 PRINT "I AM THE BEST"
20 GOTO 10
on a microcomputer in Dixons and then running away...
When i have time i will get around to planning a canal navigation app. Time is the key constraint there.
