Recently, I updated a number of my Apps for iOS 5. Anyone that knows me in real life knows that I purchased a house this summer, so I’ve been busy with non-development tasks, and as such, I hadn’t touched App programming for months. It took a few hours to get back into the swing of things, and read up on all the latest developments since mid-June or so. For one, PhoneGap had been re-branded Cordova, and with it, a ton of headaches and issues. In fact, now that I have been exploring Windows 8 development, it really shows where a number of development issues exist with the current iOS rollout cycle.
So with the release of Windows 8, and the upcoming Surface Pro tablet that I have my eye on, I’ve decided to jump over to the Microsoft side of things to explore App creation. If nothing else, there is a lot less competition for the Windows Store. And let’s face it, Microsoft Windows ain’t going anywhere anytime soon!
