XCode

  1. Hello Everybody, I want to code an iPhone app (Objective C), and the only possible way to do it is using XCode. However, I don't own a Mac, and as far as I know you can only use XCode on OS X.

    I was wondering if there is a way of getting around that or an XCode alternative on Windows?

    Thanks!

    Google for 'hackintosh'. However, there's no legal way for you to run OSX on a non-mac machine, so I won't discuss it further. :)

    Not really, you do not need a hackintosh to code apps for Apple devices. The best app I know of for making native apps for iPhone in Windows is by using Mobione: http://www.genuitec.com/mobile/index.html
    There are other programs for creating non native apps like Adobe CS6, which you can use to create your application with HTML5 (which is non native and will therefore be slow). I am pretty positive that Mobione allows you to code in Objective C.
