This update improves overall stability and addresses a number of issues in Aperture 3, including (abridged):
- All the features we added with this new version…
- Some existing features that didn’t really work all that good anymore with the new version…
- and much more.
And, before I forget, does it make a difference? It did for me, most notably, my loading time was improved and browsing through the pictures was snappier.
I have some remaining face detection running and its using a fair chunk of cpu (130%+). Also just having Aperture sit idle takes up about 850mb+ memory.
Today I enrolled into the iPhone Development Program. Since I have no objective C, C++ or C- knowledge I looked for tools beforehand in order to make the step into development simpler.
I found a couple:
Corona on the other hand is a different matter all together. It let’s you write in Lua. Therefore Corona does have a learning curve, but (keep in mind I don’t know enough about iPhone dev to say this with complete certainty ) might provide more advanced development possibilities.
As of now I will start out using PhoneGap, and when things go smoothly and I have the time to mess about with the Corona Trail Download I might even purchase the Corona Package ($99) and use that since the Lua language seems logical and easy to learn.
I’ll post regularly with updates regarding my Dev journey.
