Appreciate this dialogue.
I wrote a very simple app and paid to become an Apple Developer, so I could submit it not for the general public, but for my friends and family to try and give me ideas for improvements and rev 2.
It was complex to submit (as Chris describes in his video on App Store submission). Apple said it was too simple and they have enough, and I quote: “enough burp, fart, and fortune teller apps”. That hurt.
So stepped back and decided to do something more challenging and hopefully to the review board’s satisfaction. And decided to use SwiftUI, as it appears to be the future.
But I have hit a roadblock in just simply passing data from an API call to the UI. Two weeks now of repeatedly watching tutorials, posting questions both here and on Stack Overflow, and even asking a friend that’s an advanced coder. No progress.
The point is, and to stick with the theme of this thread, I’m really tempted to Just give up. Maybe it’s simply beyond my capability.
But it’s reassuring to see I’m not alone.
It has given me inspiration to keep on trying.
