Uh so I can’t really find a clear answer to this but, can you program iOS apps with C# or not because I’m only seeing shit on fuckin Swift. More like swiftly beating myself to death with a wooden bat

    Look into Xamarin.

    @Bubbles are you working on something you specifically need c# for or are you just tryin to avoid having to learn swift. I’ve only played around with a few tutorial exercises but what they consisted of was remarkably easy to pick up.

    @M1sf3t I’m not touching Swift my dude

    @Bubbles is there a reasoning behind that or you just don’t like apple?

    @M1sf3t I don’t mind apple but Im not a fan of something that constricts me to one platform with, C# gets a pass cause of .NetCore but also there’s the fact I don’t use a Mac and don’t use their stuff enough to use it at all

    @Bubbles makes since, still if you’ve already gotten your app figured out and it only consists of a standard set of components, duplicating a second version with xcode and swift shouldn’t take all that long. Im using a ‘10 pro and it runs xcode fairly decently so if you don’t have a mac system to work with you can always find a refurb for a decent price.
    https://www.macofalltrades.com seems to keep quite the variety on hand, though I can’t say I’ve actually ordered one yet.

    When people don’t realise swift is open source and can be used on Windows or Linux, Maybe not for iOS apps... but still.

    Besides, you’re still going to need a MacBook / iMac to compile your app for the App Store regardless of using Xamarin/C#.

    🤷‍♂️ the down side to Apple.

    @C0D4 you know for what it's worth I really don't mind that about apple. A couple hundred dollars here or there is nothing in the grand scope of things and it seems to keep the app store from being one big clusterfuck. I don't have any idea of what its like on droid but when I was messing around with chrome, I had to try 10 different renditions for any extension I found that I needed, half of which were already built into safari natively.

    That's definitely not to say that apple shits gold bricks or anything, but just that letting any tom, dick, and harry that wants to give development a shot upload their first shitty app onto the public store seems to be a really, really bad idea.

    @M1sf3t I agree it has its advantages.

    But it also hinders development with the upfront costs, but then Apple isn’t really wanting any Tom dick or Harry publishing anyway.

    @C0D4 You know you'd probably be surprised how easy it is to get a small loan with reasonable credit and a decent business idea. I got 10k off a halfway put together presentation at a 4 wk "lean" seminar. In hindsight I wish I had prioritized and portioned it out a little differently, but live and learn I guess.
