Working document list of iPad/iPhone programming restrictions (features?).
- There’s no multitasking except for Apple-blessed applications. For example, you can play a song while you are doing something else. However, say you have a location-based app and you want to notify the user when they’ve reached a certain location even if they are doing something else at the time. How would you do that?
- Only C, C++, Objective-C are supported. An interpreted language that could potentially have a smaller footprint would be nice, BASIC or Rexx perhaps.
[apparently, this is a relatively new restriction and might be subject to an antitrust probe.]
