I've been expecting them to do this ever since they first changed the
rules. The fact that a high percentage of apps out there,
particularly games, use scripting languages already indicates some
fallacy in their decision. I'm glad they've finally gone through with
I've been continually updated my iPhone game Farmageddon, by the way,
which is fully written in Gambit Scheme and it's always been accepted.
I doubt they were looking for a Lisp runtime though!
I would be really interested in a Scheme-based framework for
developing native apps. I've been working with Cocoa Touch/Obj-C for
the past 6 months and although it's well-designed, the language for
constructing event-based apps is annoying. You have to create a
massive number of classes simply to override behavior and catch any
events. Doing it more functionally, like node.js, would be a dream.
