    cheers guys
    @firewood :) been there done that a few times

    @jonnymo5 how long you got ;) j/k
    well most important is I'ld love it to be a lot more stable, the debugger to work all the time i.e. its random if the watch window will display a variables value, much more intelligent usage of tabs etc

    It has improved I grant you that, eg I see theyve recently fixed text selection (not quite there yet though) :D

    I had a bit of a google, & see this
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/803366/alternatives-to-xcode-for-iphone-development-or-how-to-make-xcode-suck-less

    I see Jetbrains mentioned
    Has anyone used this?
    ta zed

    Ive used
    Code::Blocks, Dev-C++ (not updated IIRC), MSVC, Borland, Anjunta, KDevelop (pretty unstable though) and have been happy with all of them, but thats been on windows/linux. On the Mac side of things it seems the options are very lite (but Im no expert) thats why Im asking here
