iPhone Search Bar and Web Services

I have started experimenting with developing applications for the iPhone last week – which is mainly why I bought a new mac mini to replace my old PowerBook G4.
Apple did an amazing job with the documentation and there are a lot of great tutorials and resources available on the web and iTunes.¬†After playing around with the ‘hello world’ app example I went a head and applied lessons from four different tutorials to utilize the search bar, picker view, web view and consume a web services
The following “Nael’s Are You Feelin’ Lucky” example combines these elements to present behavior similar to Google’s “I’m feeling lucky” button on their search page – except it uses the Yahoo! Search Web services instead.
It was a great little educational experiment. Feel free to comment.
