At $150 you can buy a better programming environment, or get lessons on how to code with Xcode and Interface Builder. After all, this is just a tiny library. It might be perfect, but the price isn't.

Costs far too much to add what is free and standard in Cocoa to RB. Might be worth $15, at most.

I think people will accept a cost to add these (because RealBasic comes with an ease-of-use that Cocoa/Xcode doesn't have...) but yes, a hundred and fifty bucks really is beyond ambitious!

At 20, you'd have a customer. Maybe even 30. But 150 is more likely to have people wearily reaching for an Xcode beginner's manual instead...

Too bad it's so expensive, it is a nice addition to REALBasic
