First iPhone App - LDS Gems

Saturday May 8, 2010

Update: LDS Gems is no longer on the Apple App Store. http://gems.lds.org was not actively updated for a period of time, but is once again. I don't have plans to put LDS Gems back on the App Store.


After a bit of work, I finally got my first iPhone app on the App store. It's nothing extraordinary, but was a learning experience for the most part. It's called LDS Gems, and is an easier way to manage, read, and share the quotes and stories provided by the LDS church at http://gems.lds.org.

I used Titanium Appcelerator to build it, and was really impressed with how much easier it was to develop using Javascript as opposed to Objective-C. This is probably due to having quite a bit more experience with Javascript than the later, but I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to dive into iPhone App development, but not ready to take on learning Objective-C.
