wxPython, PythonCard, tutorials, roadmap

Well it seems to be my fate to be frequently asking for things that don't exist in Pythonista yet. :(
Any thoughts on alternatives to these two modules (wxPython and PythonCard) for Pythonista?
I'm new to Python and would like to use Pythonista as an alternative to the IDLE development environment for learning to program GUI apps in Python as it seems much friendlier even than IDLE. All the books I've encountered assume the user is using IDLE on Windows or Mac or Linux, and while I have done that already, I'd much prefer doing this in Pythonista to the greatest extent currently possible. Anyone have any thoughts on additional modules and/or tutorials and/or books (something like Warren and Carter Sande's Hello World book or Jason R. Briggs' Python for Kids) that would help me with that while using currently existing Pythonista modules? I think there must be more than 100 such resources available for Python in general and even IDLE in particular, but what about something specifically for Pythonista? Aside from Pythonista documentation (which is great, but obviously not meant for holding a beginner's hand from starting to code all the way through to building simple GUI apps like the two books above are meant for) I haven't seen anything yet.
Lastly, omz, do you have a roadmap for what's coming up in the next version of Pythonista? I think your app is truly superb, and I'm super-excited about going as far as possible with it.

Of course I have a long list of features I'd like to implement in future versions, but I don't make this public as a "roadmap". It's just too difficult to estimate how long the development will take or if there are any unforeseen difficulties that might make a particular feature unfeasible. Having a public roadmap would just lead to disappointment when the things on it don't work out as planned. Also, I like surprises. ;)
