    Anyone using Appcode on a daily basis? Thoughts? Gripes? Good? Bad?

    I tried it for a few minutes a few years ago. The fact that it lacked an Interface Builder and instead boots you out to Xcode made it Dead on Arrival for me. I only have 4 GB of RAM on my computer - running one IDE and the iOS simulator is already pushing it. Running two IDEs and the simulator? Forget about it.

    A few developers at my old company very much preferred AppCode over Xcode. I never got around to giving it a shot.

    Here is an interesting take from Jon Reid. He is pretty much the best I have seen in the business when it comes to TDD for iPhone and iPad.

    I have use it pretty regularly. It does have basic storyboard support now, but lacks a lot of auto layout constraints support. But I like the refactor tools much better in App Code than Xcode.
