    Is there a point continuing?

    I'm about half way through writing my game. Knowing that the SDK and the 1.1.3 update is coming so soon, i'm wondering whether I should continue writing or should wait for the SDK as I don't want to finish writing it and have to start all over again with the SDK. If I continue, I guess i'll be hoping that porting it to the sdk will be easy.

    Anyone think I should continue writing it?

    in my opinion, the apps that will be created with the sdk will likely be SOLD. so in that case, you should have to pay for your apps. and its not bad trying to code now, since it will show how much you are capable of.

    conclusion: continue with the game

    Continue. Then when the SDK comes out, see if you can use it to improve your game.

    Well done and good luck, anticipating your release.

    What I see is the SDK is going to be so limited and all apps will have to be approved by apple that people will still JB, thats just what I see happening hopefully it won't.

    If youre writing your game in obj-c, which I imagine you are, you can reuse the code for the SDK, probably.
