Hello Tony! Have you had a chance to look at Swift yet? Would you recommend learning objective-c first for just getting into development with iOS? Can't wait rev's next project :)

Hi, no, I’ve not looked at it yet. I believe it’s pretty decent. But I’d recommend learning a bare minimum of swift/obj-c and doing all the rest - e.g. your actual app - in C++, because then most of your code will run on other platforms. Note the pain I am going through setting up a NativeActivity project on Android, but once I have it, I’ll be able to write iOS/Android with minimal platform interference. This is the path to enlightenment ;)

*squints to see the board in the shop* £2.20 for a hot chocolate? Blimey.... is that normal for the price of a hot drink in a cafe nowadays or is that just really over priced? They probably only make it with powder anyway!

tbh, though, the place is actually pretty cheap, for York. I’m getting a very decent coffee for less than £2 which is less than we pay at the big chains. Of course, I preferred paying 50p or less in Ukraine :)

I’m still battling with native-android stuff. Even loading a file is non simple. My only solace in life is the new coffee place at the end of the street. I think they wonder what I’m working on that causes so much anguish, lol.

So that was NOT easy :O
But it’s a proper c++ native android app, done without any ide assistance. And that is the sweet smell of success. (nearly - still a million other things to do)

Coder’s holiday! Reading a Great Book (finally). That’s the good bit. The less good bit is that I’m trying to learn how to program native android apps, too. < fun, although making progress :)
