Default Traveller needs iOS apps

Searching the app store I couldn't find a single app for Traveller. Correct me if I'm wrong. IMHO, this needs to change.

Over the past few years I've written a slew of Mac apps for Traveller using Xojo (nee RealBasic). I did these for fun and give them away for free. Submitting an app to the Mac app store is somewhat arcane in the Xojo world and made my eyes glaze over (i.e., not fun) so I haven't done it.

I've avoided Xcode as Objective-C made my eyes glaze over (i.e., not fun). But now, it looks like Swift 2.0 is maturing into something useful and actually fun. Xojo is nice but it's gotten more expensive while Xcode is free. So I'm learning Xcode with an eye to doing iOS apps written in Swift. Anyone else out there?

I think I'm going to start simple by making a little character database app to store your PCs and NPCs in. Each character will have all the info provided on a TAS Form 2 and you can edit anything and everything. I'm thinking of including a database of CT skills and common equipment for adding to your character record. Will probably allow the creation of new skills and equipment as well. Sounds like fun.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention this and see what this thread turns into.
