What tools do i need to develop iphone applications?

Hello,

I am new to mobile application. I want to make simple application for iPhone. I don't know how to build iphone application.
Is MAC OS compulsary to build application.
I want to know tools required for .net 2008 and Java to develop application for iPhone.

If anyone have idea about this then please reply.

Thanks in advance.

I am an Apple Cert. Developer, and sorry, but yes, if you want to use the iPhone SDK you are going to have to use a Mac. (OS 10.5 +)

The SDK is free to download and includes xcode, the IDE for iPhone development, and the iPhone simulator to debug on (although I recommend getting an iPhone/iPod touch to debug properly on!)

Once you have got an app running on the simulator you will need a developers licence (about 68 from apple) to deploy it to the phone or release it to the app store.

Apple Developer Connection is a good place to start

Hope that helps,

Mark

I guess only change you have is to try mono. Check [Mono] View of /trunk/mono/build-iphone.sh for how to build mono for IPhone. Of course, if you are new to mobile developing, installing mono from sources might be hard; I don't know.

iPhone's claim to run mac osX, so whatever you would use to develope for osX should work (I would think?)
There might be a mono distrib for osX?

I want to build iPhone application On Windows OS and dont want to use MAC OS.
Is it possible to build in .net 2008 with MVC or I need to use mono??
I don't know how to use mono and mobile application development in .net.

You want to build a windows application....to run on a MAC OS?
I am pretty sure you will need to use mono, or some other language that will actually run on the MAC OS.

Perhaps you should consider a phone running windows mobile, if you want to develop using .NET2008?

The reason you can't build a .NET mobile application for an iPhone is because the iPhone does not have the .NET framework.

Therefore, you cannot easily develop .NET mobile applications for an iPhone unless you run it in something like Mono on the iPhone. (I didn't realize that Mono was available for the iPhone..that's kind of cool :)

It is better not to use .NET for developing an iPhone application.

I don't know what development tools are out there that will let you develop an iPhone application in Windows.

If you really want to use .NET, have you considered developing a web site application that the iPhone can access through Safari?

apple has it's own iphone SDK
iPhone Dev Center

I don't think your dev environment has to be apple, they have an iphone emulator for you to use too.

Yeah I saw this a while ago. As a certified iPhone developer I am not sure if I am for or against it, as I don't want EVERYONE stealing my thunder :)
