Hi Rory,

I'm new at learning Objective-C along with the iPhone SDK. I have an app idea but it involves some physics with objects. I started coding collisions myself but am now in a bind. I researched some open physics engines (Box2D and Chipmunk). Would you suggest using these in your app? Which one do you prefer?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi

Chipmunk is better than Box2d. Large community help available.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
