Using shared libraries in iOS

After a couple of evenings, my first (really simple) iPhone app is taking shape. However, since I have my heart in .NET development, it is painfully clear how Microsoft has spoiled us with fantastic Visual Studio features.

Some things that are natural and so easy to accomplish in .NET does not come so natural with iOS. One example is to gather reusable functionality in shared libraries. With the iPhone, it is not as easy-going as when developing in .NET.

I have found several blog entries that describe how to accomplish this. One good example is:

In time, this will hopefully be made a lot easier even for iOS.
