[NTLK] Einstein on iOS

Some input on Matthias code on iOS. The code base is the same, with stuff
to accommodate the various platforms. I have successfully pulled down
Matthias code from github and compiled it for iOS, though when I actually
run it on my iPhone it hangs booting Einstein, and I haven't had time to
look into it. I'm happy to help or work with whomever wants to keep an iOS
Einstein on par with the other platforms. And if I get time to looking into
the hang, I will likely have some questions for Matthias. :-)

Hi Matthias

Absolutely BEERS on me, if we ever can meet each other!

On your point of the iOS Development.  Is someone else keeping up that
development?  If no one is doing it, I could learn it.  What language is
it?  Xcode? Swift?  Would the code you are using work with the iOS
development?  For example, if I took your code, could I tweak it for iOS
development?  I would have thought the development for Mac OS would be the
same or similar to iOS, in that you would use the Xcode environment.

So having said all that, I?m interested in taking an attempt at making
PCMICA cards available in iOS (iPad and iPhone), but I will NEED you help!
The beers just keep pilling up ;)

Let me know where I should start? maybe even starting with some tutorials
to familiarize myself around Xcode.

> My next question is, will you port this PCMCIA functionality to all
Einsteins, ie) over to the iOS Einstein?

It will work on MacOS, Windows, and Linux for sure (give it a week or
two). It will eventually work on Android (that will be probably 3 months
away). I can't give you an ETA for iOS. I am not maintaining that
version. Technically, it's of course possible.

> Thanks so much for all that you do in all things Einstein!! I wish we
could give you a tip somehow, a coffee, beer, etc? I think I?m up to owing
you a case of beer by now!

Sound great. Let's a have a beer at the next physical User Meeting ;-)
