Just like you said, " it doesn't hurt to learn since you can get more jobs if you know it".
I was reading an article about "HTML5 vs Flash" and holy cow! the ones commenting could have started WW 3! The hierarchy of client then designer then developer, I'm a graphic designer and I have respect for programmers and developers trust me I wish there was an easier way for me to learn Cocoa Touch and XCode and Objective-C. But some companies look for graphic designers "MUST KNOW ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE" oh and/or flash and dreamweaver. So it is a little frustrating.
I've been delving in the usual iOS stuff that comes with coming up with an app. That way I can develop and design my own stuff and have the best of both worlds.
