iPhone SDK: Now With Interface Builder Goodness

That was much faster than I had anticipated.

I wrote about the Apple iPhone SDK and how I thought it was going to revolutionize the mobile application market.

At that time, Apple released the first Beta of the iPhone SDK, which was very functional, but did not include a working Interface Builder application. That meant that you would have to roll your own User Interface elements using Cocoa Touch. No big deal for now, but it sure would be much nicer to have IB available.

And, now it is.

Kudos to Apple for moving quickly to get this out.

I am extremely impressed by Apple’s execution of their iPhone strategy and developer program. There will be a shitload of high-quality and reasonably priced applications for this device.

Thanks to Ars Technica for catching the announcement for me.
