Should be the same. Regarding introductions etc, I think UNNA is
fairly complete regarding the programming guides as well as the
Programming the Newton books.

This is probably a bit tricker since NewtonScript apps like to be
developed with the Newton Toolkit, constructing dialogs and apps
programmatically is a bit tricker (if you want to dig deeper,
BuildContext is the function to start with).
