 After spending the entire months of November and December 2010 making a [[research:articles:progress_20101116|Native iPad app]] in Objective-C, I realized it'll take me over a year to even have a working prototype. Moreover, the code would have to be rewritten from scratch if I want to make it work on Android or any other platforms. This would certainly go against my original plans of making a [[research:articles:ktype_platform|multi-platform]] device. After spending the entire months of November and December 2010 making a [[research:articles:progress_20101116|Native iPad app]] in Objective-C, I realized it'll take me over a year to even have a working prototype.

-So in January 2011, I decided to switch to [[http://www.phonegap.com/|PhoneGap]] because it lets me write an app like it is a web-page while still giving me access to iPad's hardware capabilities like audio and wireless. This meant I would have to scrap months of work I had done in XCode/Objective-C and start from scratch. Fortunately, thanks to [[http://jquery.com|JQuery]] and [[https://github.com/cloudhead/less.js/|LessJS]], I was able to do more in one week using JavaScript than I did in two months using Objective-C. It was definitely worth the effort.+So in January 2011, I decided to switch to [[https://www.phonegap.com/|PhoneGap]] because it lets me write an app like it is a web-page while still giving me access to iPad's hardware capabilities like audio and wireless.
