Question that came up, is it deliberate to use SwiftUI on iOS instead of compose iOS? No opinion from me, just curious what the optimal choice in 2024 is.

My 2c is that using SwiftUI is still the best approach.....but....being able to use Compose for iOS for some particular screen for example is an interesting option
I actually tried it out for Confetti (in separate branch)

There was a relevant point that said “The future is still being decided” from the talk happening right now named “Compose Multiplatform” Guess they are just throwing this out there to get the feedback needed and to see how people actually like it or not. There isn’t much of an answer for something like this at least right now. Besides “Probably don’t use this right now for production apps” of course which is the status right now 😄

I think the main advantage is the maintenance cost. IIUC, our iOS app is behind due to the lack of iOS contributors but by using Compose we can reuse knowledge and skills, like the Desktop app - but of course, it is super early stages.
