iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, Software Development and Delivery

What is this Objective C?

It’s the language, the default language of the iPhone SDK, and is also used for Mac development. I spent a while learning it, and the SDK, adapting from Java. At first it was painful, clunky, even the syntax was annoying. But now I like it, it’s natural. Some things could be improved. Maybe because I come from Java, where it’s automatic and hidden, I think memory management is a pain.

But the SDK contains a lot of good functionality and quality, and when you have mastered it, you can develop fast. It means my second game will be easier.

  1. Memory management is automatic and hidden when you’re writing Mac apps too — Apple just haven’t made it possible for iPhone apps, as yet :/
