Building notes

1) Remove Code signing identity if present (should not, but sometimes I push it back)

Xcode 4.3+ (tips from @sashalaundy):	
1) Product > Edit Scheme
2) At top set Scheme to "Pomodoro" and Destination to "My Mac __-bit"
3) On left select Archive
4) Type in Archive Name "Pomodoro"
5) Hit OK
6) Product > Archive - Xcode builds and then opens Organizer with archive selected
7) Hit Distribute
8) Choose Export as "Application"

Xcode 4:
1) Build a copy for archiving: Product menu -> Build for -> Build for Archiving
2) Open the organizer: Window menu -> Organizer
3) Create a copy of the application: Hit the Share button in the Organizer
4) Choose "Application" from the drop-down menu, and then save it to your Applications folder. 

Xcode 3: (not actively maintained)
1) Should work, but I don't maintain it anymore.

If you want to use Twitter integration, you must have a consumerKey and a secretKey for oAuth/xAuth authentication. You must obtain the secrets from twitter site and then add them in src/TwitterSecrets.h 

#define _consumerkey @"your key" 
#define _secretkey @"your other key"

If you are not interested in Twitter, just don't activate the twitter integration.
