I’ve taken a couple of looks at ObjectiveC. Long enough to initially decide that iPhone development was not for me. That accelerometer just seems so neat though so between Unity3D’s iPhone SDK and other avoidance strategies I’m back on the iPhone development bandwagon. I’ve been dabbling with Python for a few years now with slow progress. Lately I’ve accelerated my study of Python and been becoming very fond of the missing brackets that made me batty a few years ago and loving the brevity and the ability to throw a few lines of code out there and get serious results. This would not be a good time for me to wander off to dip into the Objective-C Pool. Then it crossed my mind to Google Python iPhone development. I was surprised by the results. I’m listing a few here. I welcome feedback from anyone who has had any experience with this.
