    Cool.. .. once you get used to objective c its not too bad. It syntax does make sense after a while. But than my favorite language was smalltalk, so I’m a weird chick. I’m working on my first iphone native application, its a photo sharing application. it uses icefaces / java as the backend . I’ve written a lot of iphone web apps. but this is my first native application. I think you can agree though the first object-c app you write is the hardest. And this one is a big effort for a first . I’n using the newly opened source icepdf to provide printing and image editing for the application, and icefaces ajax push. The iphone app has a tabbar and 3 viewControllers. My webapps and discriptions the above can be found at http://www.mooncatventures.com/blogs

    Awesome! Installed and gonna keep using it!
    Would be even better if you can add support for custom feeds as well (like more than just 2 feeds)

    Works like a charm!

    How do you get around the font engine issue on the open sourced version of icepdf?
    I have been looking for a java library for pdf’s and they all seem to fall short with font types.
    Do you just allow for font substitution?
