Wow,this is really promising :D
I think it sounds really fordable.
But how does the iDevice testing work (on an mac)?
Do you have to build an ad-hoc version each time?

You click "Test Game" (like you would for our normal Flash testing), and within a couple seconds, the iOS simulator pops up and it runs. For rapid testing of game logic, this is the best option.

You can do the same for "Test Game on Device" - This takes a little longer and fires up XCode.

You don't have to worry about ad hoc IPA builds unless you want to share it with other testers.

Just so that people get an idea of what's out there pricewise.

I think the most comparable piece of software (barely, seeing that Stenycl is significantly better) is GameSalad and while the basic version is free the Pro version is $500 and you don't get much for that $500. What you do get is no GS-splash screen which is important because you have to remove yourself from the company of the horrible GS games out there.

Bottom line is, iStenycl is a deal and I for one am excited to give you guys my money even though I have a lot of learning to do still.

Amen to that:)

When my GS subscription runs out (October)  I'm going for Stencyl as my iOS dev tool.
So nice to see the devs are active on the forum and is actually communicating with the users.

Is it still possible to apply for the iOS beta testing?

"your" unlucky that Google Translate "does polish".
"Heh... Full of hungry will not understand..."
I'm assuming in this case "full of hungry" means "those who do not go hungry".

Actually it's more complicated idiom than that, but we will not go into it, because it's offtopic. I suggest to ask Polish native speakers (other than me).

There are no impossible things. There is only lack of skills.
Don't click this if your computer has less than 641 kilobytes of RAM.

It means people with full tummies will not undersstand. I think he got that from the photo food thread but that's off-topic.
