I'm looking for something a little more challenging than Hello, World to get my feet wet in Objective C and Cocoa Touch development. It's always more fun to write something interesting than just a dummy app. Any suggestions?

Think you could write a background clipboard that gives the thing copy and paste?

I keed, I keed. Here's a free bump from an iphone hater.

You could do copy & paste in an app, but you are limited to one app at a time running so that makes it a little tough. 3G iPhones can run an app and talk at the same time. 2G phones can only do one or the other.

first present it to the Lord and master .. steve jobs..

no use working on it,, and then not have it approved..

I know its off topic, but if your writing apps, you must know a lot about the thing


I realized I didn't answer your original question. There is an iPhone app that give you a remote desktop to your mac. It's free.

I don't think anyone has cornered the market on dowsing apps for the iPhone, so its ripe for you to claim that territory.

Punch your brother. Take away his light saber.

id really like to be able to sync my existing notes and todo items from apple mail. of course, a lot of other people would to - so maybe there is an obvious obstacle.

i've also thought some type of shopping/grocery/inverntory manager would be interesting. perhaps that also allows the camera to function as a barcode reader.

although the emphasis seems to be on standalone apps, i personally think there are a lot of opportunities for software that can extend or that work in conjunction with desktop apps.

I appreciate the suggestions, even the dousing one. :-)

Apple has you sandboxed in pretty good on this limiting what is possible.

How about something that will pull a list of your subscribed threads from ARFCOM and include links to that specific thread? With the option of viewing it in the lite version if you still are on the EDGE network and the full version if a 3G or Wifi connection?

Ballistics tables/calculator would be real nice.

There are already a couple for the iPhone, but I agree.

That one is web based. Native would be much better. My range has squat for service so a completely local app on the iphone would have benefit. Shouldn't be that hard to do either.

My range has sketchy coverage also, thats why I suggested it. I would pay for a native app.

Thanks for posting the url.


I just went to the url of the app and this is what comes up


Currently our web host is unable to meet the demand of NOBal Comp; we're in the process of sourcing a more capable web host, so please check back in a couple of days... We should be back online by then.

Regards,
WebDiligence.ca



So there is demand or they had a crappy host. Hopefully they do get the app back online so I can play with it. I would prefer a native app though.

What I'd really like is to be able to use the GPS ability of the iPhone, or enter a street address and pull up my local tax assessor's web site to see info like appraisal, recent sales, plats...
