    Cataclysm Talent Calculator App

    So I was bored at work one day and searched my iPhone for Warcraft apps (especially Cataclysm related). Since most WoW sites are blocked while at work, I don't get to look at the new talents while I am bored or on break. I was surprised when looking through all of them, there is no Cataclysm talent calculator! Not even one included in some other all-purpose Cata app.

    So I was considering learning iPhone app programming (I'm a software engineer) and creating one that I would update whenever I see that WoWhead or MMO-champ say new ones are out. Thoughts? If you have/had an iPhone is that something you would pay $.99 for?

    It's slow though and now in a very iPhone friendly environment.

    you're right. folks like me who don't pay for apps deal with it or wait til we get home. Blizzard's app includes talent calculator and is free (live version only.) so if you're going to do this do it now and if it doesn't sell make it free and add it to your resumé of things you've made that is super popular

    Yeah I did see a standalone live talent calculator also that was free, so I may just go that way. I will post in the off topic thread if anyone has any app ideas they would like to see implemented, as I am currently brainstorming topics still.

    It is a cool idea and you might make a little money off of it if you do it.

    I wouldn't probably buy it either, given it is a fairly short-term thing and I rarely have a desire to play with it on the go, but that isn't to say there aren't other people who might want to. 99 cents is cheap to one person, but the aggregate could be nice for the writer.
