Develop IPhone/ITouch Applications

Posted 03 September 2009 - 03:41 AM

First off, are applications developed for the platform interchangeable? For instance, developing applications for the IPhone can also be deployed to the ITouch with no differences?

Second, is there any way to develop if you don't have an IPhone/ITouch (like testing it on the computer)?

Yes they are interchangeable to a degree. If you are writing something that is going to need to use the phone features or the camera then that app would not work on the itouch because of the lack of phone/camera.

Other then those differences they are compatable.


It's going to be pretty hard to develop and test apps if you don't have an Iphone/Itouch.

the XCode(the IDE for the IPhone development) comes with an IPhone emulator so you can test your applications against it. I also believe you can distribute your app to up-to 100 devices to test on.

XCode for iPhone comes with a simulator. It is not, however, the best way to test an application. I find many more compile warnings on the device than on the simulator. jjsaw5 is accurate about the iPod and iPhone compatibility. Now with the new 3.2 SDK it is also compatible with iPad.
