Don't Fall Off the Cutting Edge (IPhone Application Development)

The iPhone is cutting-edge enough that there are still plenty of opportunities to expand its capabilities — and many of them are (relatively) easy to implement. You are also working with a very mature framework. So if you think something you want your app to do is going to be really difficult, check the framework; somewhere in there you may find an easy way to do what you have in mind. If there isn’t a ready-made fix, consider the iPhone’s limited resources — and at least question whether that nifty task you had in mind is something your app should be doing at all. Then again, if you really need to track orbital debris with an iPhone app, go for it — someone needs to lead the way. Why shouldn’t it be you?
