Cool Things This Week:
- We have confirmed (using instruments) that having a large sized (full-screen iPad) UIView does not impact memory in any significant way (as long as you don’t override drawRect or use transparency).
- Java has lost its place as the most used programming language! C has retaken the top place. Objective-C is the fastest growing language taking the 4th position (beating C#).
- We have had some success documenting our code with Appledoc. We plan to use it more in the future.
Headaches This Week:
- On our older machines, we needed to upgrade to Lion to compile binaries that use high resolution assets with the standard @2x naming convention. This serves as a lesson to keep scheduled software upgrades.
