Yes. It's easy to add libpd to your project in XCode. However, I decided 
not to use libpd's own interface to Objective-C, most of which is just a 
détour if you compare it to how things can be written like in plain C. In 
that sense, I'm using more directly vanilla, except for the soundcard 

Due to some concerns of portability, most of my iPhone code is not in 
ObjectiveC, just like most of my Android code wouldn't be in Java if I 
wrote an Android app. It's not necessarily a matter of how much those 
languages themselves are portable, it's mostly that I only need them for 
using platform-specific APIs.

«just» avoid all GPL libraries, which are not allowed in AppStore. This 
means even [expr] is banned.
