hello, all, i've gotten a lot of help from this forum since my life with mac began in late march (my first one!). i want to share with you an app that i will launch when the apple app store goes live, called "Shadows Never Sleep." it uses the language of a children's story to explore how an iphone can be used for new literature. i hope you enjoy it, see a demo here: Shadows Never Sleep i created the visuals, text, and interaction; Nick Dalton (whom i found through elance.com) programmed the app. i recommend him highly for anyone wishing to outsource some objective-c development. all best, aya.
