The next version of Dapp will have action support. Allowing you to setup objects to react to user events, such as a button being pressed or a tableview row being selected.
Specifically, the available actions will be:
- Push: By selecting this option, you will then be able to link up your object to another Dapp page. In the code itself, a user pressing on your object will cause the linked page to be shown.
- Pop: A user pressing this object will cause the current page to slide-out, showing the previous view controller on the stack. Basically, this is the same as when you press on the ‘top-left’ arrow back button in a standard iPhone application.
- Alert View: You will be able to customise the look of an alert view that will be displayed when the user touches your object. Anything from a simple message to presenting the user with a selection of options.
- Action Sheet: An action sheet will slide up when the user selects your object. You are able to customise the title and buttons that are displayed to the user.
This is very exciting news and being able to see this code in it’s raw form should prove to be very educational for learning iPhone developers.
We are on target to submit this to the App store for review on Wednesday the 26th of May.

P.S. Technology is only a small part of your app success. There is the business, sales and marketing that you need to think of too :). Which is why I also provide a bunch of free education on how to succeed on the App Store - http://kerofrog.com :).
