    I do my iOS programming in a language called RubyMotion. Check it out at rubymotion.com. It lets you write iOS, Mac, and Android apps in Ruby. They have a free starter edition. I also spoke at two of their developers conferences. I'd far rather use Ruby than Swift or Objective C. Ruby turned 20 in 2014.

    I was subscribing to this. But yesterday when I got my renewal email, I cancelled it. I work with Ruby every day, but found RubyMotion to be lacking on documentation and was much more confusing to use than just going with Obj-C or Swift directly.

    Also, support for Watch and tvOS was not great.

    It's a shame, because I really wanted to like RubyMotion. But after giving it a strong year of effort, I decided it just wasn't for me.
