I bought an iPhone at Macworld and just couldn't seem to put it down. It so seriously needs something like Spell Catcher's glossary feature (at least) I wanted to take a serious look at developing for it.
It's really, really welcome you are considering development for the iPhone! I would kill for Spell Catcher being on the this revolutionary device. But do you think it even doable? As a non programmer I couldn't even hazard a guess, but I caught this little snip-it about the iPhone over on O'Grady's Apple Core page which gave me pause. It reads in part as follows:
"The lack of multi-tasking memory-resident applications will most likely prevent the possibility of applications that offer alternate input methods, copy and paste, voice recognition, voice dialing, GPS navigation, other email programs, macro programs, text-to-speech and instant messenging clients.
The only applications that currently run in the background (or have background helpers) are Mail, SMS, Phone, Clock and iPod. All other iPhone/iPod touch applications quit as soon as you go to the home screen, and according to Jon Gruber “you don’t really notice because they launch fast, quit fast, and save automatically”
Any thoughts to date, realizing you have likely not had much time to devote to exploring this yet?
Thanks in advance for anything you care to share.
