    Hey guys

    I just got DragonfireSDK yesterday but as of now i don't have visual studio. I do all my C++ on Dev-C++. is it possible to get dragonfire running with Dev-C++?

    Also, the output is exe i hear but can i force it to compile an ipa or something so i can test it directly on my ipod?

    I don't know if it matters what you use?

    You program in c++ and then when you've tested it in their simulator they built you upload it to their build server and can publish your apps to the AppStore for free through them.
    You don't actually compile anything just program and test!

    Here's a good open source example app if you want something to study.

    I had another look today and yes, i had to use visual studio as devcpp doesn't open .dsw.

    BTW, i still can't get the stupid ball to bounce when it hits edge of screen!!! it keeps on going and dissappears, u know how to fix that?

    i dont think using this will work. Didnt apple set some new rules that you can only compile apps in official SDK?

    nah, dragonfiresdk is fine for the app store. but until i buy the developer's license, i don't think my app will actually run on an ipod or iphone cos is isn't signed.

    Pretty sure Apple isn't allowing anything in the App Store that was not developed on their SDK.

    I REALLY REALLY wish people would actually read the agreement because lots of people keep saying that^^!
    i'm not going to post it again just read this article.
    It says they must be made with one of the listed languages which carefully lists all the languages used by all other iPhone SDK's apart from flash!

    i agree with u freerunning. the dragonfiresdk's website says that u will have a fully legit, sellable app. not that my app will be that any time soon though...
