Check out my newest creation, Squarescape. Although it's not made with Alice, I figured some would want to know that I made it.

So was Objective C hard to learn?

[QUOTE=x2495iiii;50429]So was Objective C hard to learn?[/QUOTE]

At first yes, cause I was approaching it with no knowledge other than Alice's drag and drop interface and a little bit of java :p

But, I got a few library textbooks, read them front to back, and now I find Objective C to be an extremely versatile language. Simple syntax as well. The only thing I have complaints about is the sometimes tedious memory management; you have to create and destroy things yourself, iPhones can't do what is called "garbage collection" and clean up for you.

If not for Alice though, it would have been much harder to understand the concepts of programming and how to utilize basic data types like strings and booleans and integers.

Thanks for telling us, tango.

Wow.

Apple does not know how to treat a customer.

"Hi. Welcome to the App Store."

"TELL US EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU RIGHT THIS SECOND, OR YOU CAN'T DOWNLOAD A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!"

Sorry, I'm not giving my credit card number out to a place I don't plan on buying anything from.

Sort of reminds me of that one frogger app ([URL="http://www.amazon.com/Konami-Digital-Entertainment-Frogger/dp/B004Z92T9W/ref=sr_1_1?s=mobile-apps&ie=UTF8&qid=1343764651&sr=1-1&keywords=Frogger"]Click here if you want to see it[/URL]) that required permission to use your GPS for no reason and reads all your emails and stalks your facebook page. It's humbling that the major companies would think you're stupid enough to buy into all this.
