My very first iOS app! A very ugly, but functional RPN calculator!

Objective-C has been a rather interesting experience. Now I've investigated Xcode at a bit of depth, it's actually a rather well polished IDE. It's a real shame though about the whole 'messages' vs 'calls' differences. If I send a message to a method that doesn't exist in C#, it throws an exception. In Objective-C, it just (silently) returns nil. Spent 2 hours debugging only to find out a property's getter was expecting a parameter (of itself, this syntax is so foreign to me that I missed it, derp).

TL;DR: If I do something dumb, I would like you to slap me across the face, point at the offending line of code, and tell me how stupid I am to write it. For the love of GOD, don't just ignore me instead! Don't be polite Objective-C, please, tell me when I'm being derp.[/geekrant]
