@Mike, I don't know how successful porting the iPhone app directly would
be. While someone could take the general structure of the app, I have yet
to see a line of Objective-C that would pass as a line of Java (with the
exception of lines that only contain braces), even the getters and setters
@Spamboy, I agree. Keeping the two apps similar will be the biggest
challenge. With the second biggest challenge plugging the app into the
wordpress framework, however, I do believe I could use code from the iPhone
App on that.
