Can I use the ipad to program for the iphone/ipad or do I need to have a mac?
you need a mac to run the sdk
Thanks man. This forum is quick. I will enjoy programming for the Iphone and Ipad.
What on earth makes think you could do that??!
The iPad is NOT a computer. Thats like asking can i program on an iPhone for an iPhone app...! iPhone and iPad are the same OS.
However the iPad's UI hasn't (yet) been optimized for software development tools, and App store rules don't (yet) encourage such development.
However you can use a VNC or RDP app on the iPad to run Xcode remotely on a Mac.
Thanks firewood for clearing the air on computers being able to create apps for them selves. iLoveDeveloping maybe we could stay positive next time answering peoples questions. One love my bredrin!
Apple has stated, on their devforums, that we should not hold our breath on having Xcode ported to the iPhone OS. So, that approach is out for the foreseeable future.
Thanks all for the quick responses.
The iPad is a Comuter
I would say that the iPad *is* a computer. It is a "table computer".
But I can program on a Mac for a Mac...or a PC for a PC...
