Buy to develop on IOS

Hi,

I am obliged to pay Apple to develop an application with OF on IOS ?!

It’s incredible

I think you can run in the simulator for free

hi, if you have an jailbroken device you can compile the app via xcode, and upload it manually to the device. I did this several times before I bought my iosdev license, and is a lot more work needed to be done just to debug. Having the iosdev license is way much easier and faster.

Just as a different point of reference, its not unusual to have to pay $5,000+ for development environment and SDKs, especially once you get into the handheld/embedded device space. I think $99/yr is cheap for a development environment/tool chain, and you get some great tools like Instruments which work on the devices as well.

but yeah you can always use the simulator for free as well
