Getting the iPhone Lotusphere sessions app ready

With the LS10 sessions (almost) announced, and the BlackBerry sessions app updated, I am now working on updating the iPhone version for 2010.

The main bit of fun I am having is with the SDK3's Core Data Model, which is an implementation of the Cocoa data model for persistent store on the iPhone. It has a database-like functions built into it, including queries and sorts. So I am ripping out the sqlite I used last year in the SDK2 version, and replacing it with core data methods.

There's also a bit of tweaking needed to bring some of the UI elements up to date with the SDK3 framework, but it doesn't look too bad. When I'm done, I'll fire it on up to the AppStore and cross my fingers :-)

Tim, you are a GOD for doing this. I know the many iPhone users will be MOST appreciative of this when you're done. Let me know when you finish it, and I'll cross-post about it to try to let as many people as possible know about it.

Also, would you mind pinging me sometime so I can learn more about what it's like to do apps for the iPhone? I would love to learn more about this, and I can't think of a better mentor ;)

Tx so much for doing this again.

Even if last time it took a long time to get through the Apple approval procedure, it was worth the wait.

Hi Tim,

Could it be possible that your APP is only available in the US iTunes Store? Here in Canada, it seems that it's not available and it refering us to the US Store.

Thanks anyway!
