Create C# and .NET based iPhone Apps with MonoTouch

We’ll be sticking with the iPhone SDK in Comp 3906 this fall, but I always have me eyes out for interesting developments in the iPhone community.

Thought some of you might be interested to know about a project called MonoTouch, which allows developers to create C# and .NET based applications that run on the iPhone and can take advantage of the iPhone APIs as well as reusing both code and libraries that have been built for .NET as well as existing skills.

Developers can use the iPhone simulator in Xcode to test their applications as well as using MonoTouch on the final device and ship applications to the Apple AppStore for distribution.

Before you get too excited, this does not mean you can test, build and deploy on a PC. MonoTouch requires a Mac and the iPhone SDK to test on the emulator and deploy on on devices. You also still need need to be an Apple iPhone developer to deploy on the device as well.
