This isn't directly your question, but I did an iOS app that talks to
an Erlang server and used JSON. I've also done this with another app
with MsgPack, and both worked great.

I gave a talk on the former app here:

And I presented the props library I wrote for the latter app this

I think using props to manipulate JSON-like structures is quite a bit
more convenient than the native data structures, but it of course adds
some dependencies (albeit small ones).
