End of the line for existing iOS client

My recent attempt to recompile the iOS client with the latest version of XCode has exposed a number of issues:

  1. The code is written in Objective-C, which is not well supported any more.
  2. Apple is constantly changing the architecture of its CPUs.
  3. My test iPhone is no longer supported.
  4. There is no obvious equivalent to the Android Navigation Drawer.
  5. My storyboards are large and unwieldy.
  6. My Hackintosh setup is stretched to the limit.

The only practical solution is to freeze the existing app, and possibly develop a new one in Swift.
