I’ve written a post for the Mubaloo developer blog about writing meta-apps. By meta app, I mean an app to help to support the actual app you’re writing.

For a recent prototype, which had a lot of functionality but no web services, I made one of these to populate and maintain the prototype data instead of cluttering the main app with lots of creation code. It was a revelation, and I’ll be keeping this approach firmly in mind for future projects.
