Luca for iPhone

Category : Technology/LucaForiPhone.txt

I've submitted this to the App Store - Luca for iPhone. It'll be a free download, and it should work with MySQL and PostgreSQL databases set up for any version of Luca out there (because we've only implemented the ability to access the Trial Balance, Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss reports, plus the ability to zoom into the sub-accounts).

But as we build more and more on it, it'll probably remain compatible only with the latest version of Luca for Snow Leopard (because it'll be very difficult to keep all the versions in sync, so we'll focus our work on just the latest OS X/iOS platforms).

Liya for iPhone 1.0.2 is in the approval queue (in review). This supports iAds and multi-tasking, which the next version of Luca for iPhone will also support. Actually the whole idea of doing all this is to learn from doing it, so we can build better and more powerful tools in future. There are things I still don't like about these apps, but I know more about what needs to be done than I do even a month ago. So, nothing beats the old "hands-on" imperative.
