Can I develop iphone program without a Mac?
 
Hello, everyone, thanks in advance for your attention to this thread.
I am a newer on iphone development,
I don't have a mac, Can I develop iphone program in windows or linux system?

Is there an iphone sdk for linux or windows?

I believe the SDK is only available for the Mac.

Correct. AFAIK, the only official way to develop for the iPhone/iTouch if to do it on a Mac.

If you can find a objective-c compiler for Windows. The SDK is just a simplified tool for objective-c.

If you don't use the SDK you may run into problems as there are no testing tools to aid you on your conquest.

well you need OSX 10.5.5 at least. other than buying a mac, there are ways to emulate OSX on linux or windows. search for VMWare OSX or OSX86

Would this not be excluding all the iPhone and Cocoa Touch libraries? You're going to need more than just the compiler.

This would be against the Apple EULA as that wouldn't be . Read section 2.A. of the OS X EULA here.
