Developing iPhone apps in C# and .NET
Last Month, Novell became the first provider to offer a solution for writing iPhone apps in the C# .NET stack. Being a C# Microsoft .NET developer, I immediately became excited -- but then I started reading about it, and my excitement soon soured; their offering is called monotouch, and it costs $399 for a basic license – yikes! and it requires a mac for development (boooo). Give me something I can use, please.
There is an evaluation version, but it’s limited to development on an iPhone simulator though. Not sure on how many days you can “evaulate” the product for however.
Prior to, iPhone app development was limited to complex c and Object-c on the mac, using Apple’s iPhone SDK.
