Hi guys,

I've heard rumors about availability of tools and frameworks that would make possibile to port C# applications to iOS devices. Generally speaking, I'm wondering if those rumors are true and
if any of you has ever given them a try...
As far as I know there are only two viable alternatives to iPad / iOs developing:
- using XCode on a Mac, and develop Objective C based apps;
- develop web apps that will most probabily run on every device provided with a modern browser (so, same web app for both iOs and android devices).

This second options seems to me more a fallback than a professional solution... what do you think ?

Thanks for your support.

Web apps are not merely a fallback, in my opinion. It depends upon the app which is most suitable.


You can also explore wrapping web apps in something like PhoneGap.
