[Loadstone] Loadstone for iPhone

You'd be looking at three different code bases, one in Symbian C++ one
in Objective C, and one in Java that would have Android specific
extensions. While your at it why not throw in a Windows Mobile port
that uses c#? About the only thing the programs could share in common
would be the ability to import/export text files in a specific format
to allow point sharing. If you look at the file_formats file in the
Loadstone code it gives you enough information to make sure any
program you write will be compatible with all loadstone file formats
except for binary Symbian databases which don't play nice with
anything. As far as the argument about apps only being available
through the app store that doesn't rule out open source. The code
could still be made available, you'd just have to have a Mac with an
iPhone development license or a jail broken phone to run the code if
Apple didn't approve it. Symbian's signing process isn't exactly what
I'd call open or user friendly but the source is still available.
