So familiar, so unfamiliar

It’s been so long since I’ve written Mac OS X apps. It’s been all iOS for so long.

While the current project is an iOS project, I needed to home-brew a Mac app for internal use to help with data entry and editing. It all feels so foreign, yet so familiar.

I also do see how much Apple is NOT neglecting Mac in favor of iOS, tho you can see how Apple has ebbed and flowed, shifted priorities, and works to somewhat unify the 2 platforms. Mac OS X does seem to have a much more robust and complete API. I can long for many things it has that iOS doesn’t. But then, some things just don’t make sense for iOS of course.

Ah well. It’s kinda fun to get back to Mac programming.

Tho Auto-Layout? You are so useful, yet so painful.
