I want to develop apps and games for iPod and iPhone. My system is PC, Windows 7. Is it possible for me to acquire an iOS software development kit (e.g. xcode) so I can use my skills though I have another system in use and not Apple Mac?
IPOD app development on Windows
Do you know how to write applications in Objective C? I’m asking this because majority of the applications made for apple OS’s are primarily made using Objective C. But knowledge in C or C++ will also enable you to develop high quality iPhone applications. There are several ways you could develop iPhone apps on Windows. I’m going to point out.
Toolchains: One of the toolchains I recommend is winChain that lets you write and build iPhone apps on windows. There are also tutorials on how to build the objective C code on windows. But the only problem is that the apps developed with toolchains will only work on jailbroken phones.
SDK: Currently the best SDK for developing Iphone apps is the DragonFireSDK, this SDK uses Microsoft Visual C++ to develop and test iphone apps. Programs developed using DragonFireSDK can be completely written and debugged in windows and are also compliant for distribution and sales at the Iphone App store.
