Building Better iPhone Apps

This morning, after talking about developing my own iPhone app during the Geek Force FiveCast, I was pleased to find this Mashable article on building better iPhone apps waiting for me in my Google Reader. This is not to say that I’m going to get started this weekend—I still have no idea what my theoretical app would do, and I have never programmed Objective-C, after all—but it’s good to know that there are smarter people than me out there already thinking about how to do things better. My favorite bit of advice, and I think this applies to far more things than just iPhone app development, was this: “Step 5: Test first, test again, test some more. Also: test.”
