According to the Apple App Store, there are over 500,000 applications available just for the iPhone. That's an awful lot of applications, but that still doesn't mean that there is the specific application you need for your enterprise. I mean, I doubt very seriously your business requires employees to have the Flashlight app.

And while we ponder those questions, for the purpose of this blog, what aspects of iOS development are raising the most obstacles for you? Is there an aspect of iOS development that you'd like to delve deeper into?
