To use or not use Physics engine

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?

Chipmunk is better than Box2d. Large community help available.
