They are not forced to charge money, they can make it charge whatever they want ^^ you do have to pay for the SDK though
Actually it's free
- but it only works with MacOS. The problem here is not cost, it's question of control. The SDK is free, but you can not distribute programs developed with it except via AppStore and Apple keeps the right to kick anything from it at any time. Basically you are Apple slave and Apple decides if you projects lives or dies.
Ew this sucks. Basically, if I decide to develop apps for the Iphone, I need to pay myself a new computer OS? I sure hope it's possible to install Mac OS on any computer, now, not just their overpriced machines, otherwise I would be surprised if a lot of people developed apps distributed for free. X.x
Personally, I have no plan to develop apps for iPhone. I would rather prefer developing for a more open device or the computer. Right now I have no plan to do so, though, so I'm sticking to my good ol' 83+ calculator.
winChain is apparently not updated frequently enough. But it can work. The best way that I know would be DragonFire SDK, but that costs $99
Is that in any way affiliated with the now-defunct IRC network and programming team that used to host United-TI IRC channel?
They were called Dragon-Fire Programming.
I was googling the subject, and I found a bunch of "make an app in 5 easy steps" tutorials, where you come up with an idea, and hire a programmer to make the app, so you wouldn't need to buy a mac. Also, if you wanted, you could use OSx86 to install OSX on a PC.
Ah, right. Although then you need to make sure the person can be trusted.
Do you mean like a post notifier or something?
Sure. I guess. I was thinking more like a mobile version of the site.
Ah ok I see. We already have a mobile version, but it's very limited.
