Hi Graham, TL/DR: It’s doable, but there is a learning curve. Making your apps look native is doable, but how to get there is a mixed bag. As you’ve discovered, you have to use a range of capabilities. 1. Widgets. They are mostly straightforward to figure out. See my lesson at

Graham, When you attach a device to the Mac it should appear in the devices window of Xcode. A couple of things: 1) Make sure the device is unlocked when attaching. 2) The first time you attach it you should get a message box that will say something to the effect "Do you trust this Mac?" Ralph

It was already mentioned somewhat, but you need some sort of weight metric for each job.  Save the “smallest” job.  For each driver, assign the largest and smallest job remaining.  When done, add the weight for each driver and give the remaining job to the one with the least work. Thanks,

Maybe I’m misunderstanding but if you just want to divide the jobs you could have a counter for the current driver and after assigning a job you increase the counter and wrap it when you exceed the number of drivers. If you’re looking for a more fancy job division algorithm you should take a

I have 15 "jobs" that need to be assigned to 7 "drivers". How would you evenly distribute the jobs to the drivers? In this case one of the drivers would have 3 jobs while the others have two. Obviously, the number of drivers and number of jobs would fluctuate. This has been my mind twister for
