iUI – easier iPhone app development

Joe Hewitt, the guy who brought us the awesome Firebug now introduces iUI, which is supposed to make writing applications for the iPhone easier (get your sample apps here). It’s not really a Javascript library right now. It’s more like a set of design elements and methods that will help an iPhone developer. I’m sure we’ll see more bells and whistles added to it over time.

I’m surprised though that Apple hasn’t come out with similar utilities (or at least detailed example apps) for their iPhone developer community. (btw, Aptana rolled out their iPhone plugin recently, so if you’re looking for an iPhone IDE, look no further)

Not sure if anyone in Pakistan is working on any iPhone apps yet. I guess none of the local sites are in any hurry, because we probably won’t be seeing any iPhones in Pakistan anytime soon (but it will be super cool to see iPhone versions of say, Rozee).

But anyways, I don’t think this makes me crave an iPhone as badly as I once did (and I’m a total Apple nut case).
