Mac Objective C client application

I am wondering whats the best way to develop a client for mac in Objective-C.

This mac client should allow following:
1. Login/logout
2. Creates assets with metadata and file data. Ex. jpg.
3. Checkout/checkin files
4. Request previews/entire data

Apologies for not using correct Alfresco terminology - I have just started on Alfresco.

A few options to do the plumbing work with Alfresco
1. Web Services: Objective C support for WS is very weak and from forums suggest to stay away from it. To be able to use java one would need to rely on Cocoa-java binding which again is something not maintained.
2. HTTP API: As I understand is the best way to do this. Disadvantage is that API wrappers need to be written for Objective C.

If this is not the right place to post this, please advice.

Thanks
Kapil
