View Full Version : Question about using multiple machines for development

Dec 12, 2008, 12:03 AM
Aloha everyone,

I was wondering how easy it is to use more than one computer to develop for the iPhone, under the same paid developer account. For example, I have an iMac and a MacBook Pro. Once I get one machine set up for iPhone development (paid developer, certificates, etc...), can I then just copy everything from Keychain on one machine to the other? Or would I be limited to using only one computer for development?

Please excuse the basic nature of this question - I am a novice programmer and have barely scratched the surface of iPhone development.

That's exactly what I do with a MacBook Air and a 24" aluminum iMac.

Works fine.

Aloha ChrisRyland,

Thanks for your reply. I've written one app, but can't see it work on my iPhone (only on the simulator). I'm still debating the paid developer option, but I don't really have enough time to devote to iPhone development to warrant it (plus the added expense of setting up a company, getting a website hosted, etc...). The more I get into writing apps the more I like it, however :D. I need to get a lot better before I take the plunge, but it's nice to know that I can develop on either one of my (eligible) Macs.
