My fiance is somewhat of an artist and wanted another means of showing off her work. I had the idea of building her an iPad application that would work similarly to how the numerous wallpaper apps on the app store function. I've uploaded a few hundred pieces of her artwork onto a server already. Now, I want to read the contents of that directory, place those contents into an array or dictionary, and display them either randomly or in order. This isn't a "please help me" thread, and I haven't really started the project yet. I am simply looking for suggestions on what other people think the most efficient way of accomplishing this task would be. I'm pretty sure I will stick to my array/dictionary approach, but would like to hear some feedback first. Additionally, there are a few ways to go about actually getting the contents from a remote directory that I would also appreciate input on. Thanks all.
