No iPhone development on Windows? Not so fast...

Icon 2 Comments
Well as many of you know, Apple iPhone SDK is not available for Windows. However, many people still want to develop applications for the iPhone but can't a fford a Mac on their desk. The best solution in this case would be creating Web Apps. What are web apps (http://www.apple.com/webapps/whatarewebapps.html)? Basically, those are the same apps for the iPhone, but you have to access them from Safari. The applications have rich functionalities, that are really comparable to those in the AppStore. You don't need an Apple account to access them and you can easily place a Home Screen icon for a favorite app.

But how do you develop those on Windows? Basically, you need web development knowledge (Javascript, HTML, AJAX) and some familiarity with WebKit (http://www.webkit.org/). And you will only need the basic web development tools to create web apps. This is definitely a chance for Windows users to get into the iPhone development. However, to submit your application to Apple you will still need a developer account (a free Apple Developer Connection Online membership).
