So, the community is beginning work on a native iOS app, as well as an offline webapp for iOS. I'm totally new to iOS development—in fact, I currently don't even own an iOS device, though iPad 2 will likely change that—so I asked the folks who follow me on Twitter where I should start. Here's what they said.

I’m not sure; I think we’re going to dual-license GPL/MIT.
