i am writing a drawing app for ios and was wondering whats the benefits of using GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP?

Triangle strips reduce the number of vertices required because only the first triangle in a strip needs all 3 vertices. Each subsequent triangle (after the first one) is defined with only a single vertex per triangle.

See the Red Book, chapter 2 for more detail: … edbook.pdf
