    This isn't really an application idea but more on the flipside. It's a software idea for PC/Mac. I was wondering if it was possible to run iPhoneOS and Android on PC/MAC. By emulating the ARM processor and all the hardware etc. This could be useful for software testing and demonstrating apps. We've already achieved running windows under VMs on Macs + PCs, why not the iphoneos and similar?

    i'm not talking about a simulator. i'm talking about a full blown iphoneos running. Also, Xcode doesn't run on windows so us win users don't have anything. ALSO, i'm talking other OSes too like Android

    That's because Windows is not a real operating system, it is a joke

    , but it would be nice to get something running similar to VirtualBox but for Mobile Devices.
