OT: What bothers me ... With an iPad (I'm using an iPad 4) go to: daringfireball.net -- count the seconds Then Recode.net -- count the seconds Then appleinsider.com -- count the seconds Then Just reload this page -- count the seconds
I haven't found anything that beats Discover for cashback rewards -- though some merchants still don't accept Discover." so I expect this to arrive by iOS 9 OS 1 "
I think that merchant rewards/loyalty cards/coupons are just a permutation of iWallet -- not too difficult to implement, and doesn't require TouchID or NFC (but those could be used to advantage if Apple allows developer access).Anyway, Apple could provide a generic app, say iRewards, which provides the basic mechanism (capture rewards cards, woken up up by iBeacons/WiFi/NFC, exchange info with merchant, capture receipts ...).

I don't believe that there would be any embedded C code, as Swift is designed to be as efficient as C and outperform it.Consider: The guy who is responsible for implementing llvm/clang, responsible for Xcode Tools, etc. -- is Chris...
