    Is there any way to utilize Python and PyObjC to build iPhone applications for non-jailbroken phones? Has anyone tried this? While I know Obj-C enough to be dangerous I've spent too many years with garbage collection to want to go back and hunt the memory leak :)

    Thanks in advance,

    Pete

    No. The iPhone does not have a Python runtime on it.

    Thanks - but utils like py2app can place a runtime in with your code as part of the app package.... at least for normal mac development.

    Not going to happen. Interpretors and the like are banned by Apple.
