    [BLOG = www.wisdk.tumblr.com]


    What is The Windows iPhone Software Development Kit?
    The WISDK is exactly what the title says. A port of the regular SDK, just for Windows users.

    Will I be able to get my applications onto the App Store?
    Very, VERY, VEEERRYYY doubtful. I'll explain more into this later.

    Then what's the point?
    The apps will no doubt work on Cydia and Installer, though. I'm thinking about coming up with something just like the App Store, the App Stand, that applications, when submitted are directly added to.

    How will I get the App Stand onto my iPhod?
    I believe I may add a jailbreak method on the side [With credit to the creator of whatever method I use] that will also install App Stand. You also may be able to get it from Installer/Cydia.

    This is free, right?
    Everything. I suppose developers can put a price on an app if they want, but if a price is added it will be checked if the application meets certain requirements.

    Limitations? There has to be something on the side...
    Yeeaaaap. Not much though. Apps MUST be under 20mb MAXIMUM. Apps submitted larger will not go through. Apps also must meet the original Apple SDK rules. This includes NO PORN, NOTHING MALICIOUS. Anything involving porn will not be tolerated. Anything malicious will be removed immediately. I will have a bot that checks for certain malicious strings of code, and if it finds it it will terminate the process.

    I'd love to help you with this project! What can I do?!
    The only support you can give is to use this program when it's released! You can also donate. Donations are on the blog page.

    When will this be released
    This is the thing - maybe a full release in about 6 months. Alpha should be released in Novemberish.

    Features

    MakeMyApp - Don’t have any coding knowledge? Don’t worry. You can generate a code for what you’ve made from the library and the interface. Developers, don’t worry. We know you do a lot of hard work, so this method isn’t going to have as much function as developing it straight from code.

    Interface and Library- Create what your app will look like, just by double clicking. Delete objects from the interface, move them…Do anything.

    iAppStandInstaller - The jailbreak method and the way of installing App Stand.

    iDev Page - XDC. XenoSoft Developer Connection. Somewhat like the ADC, just for this program and any other programs/apps XenoSoft releases.

    -Blog Posts-
    I will post the most recent blog posts here.

    LATEST BLOG POST : "You Choose"
    "
    Should I include something along the lines of Dashcode?
    Dashcode is a mac application that allows you to make Widgets/Websites for MobileSafari. Because there are no widgets on PC’s, it’ll just be fore making websites for MobileSafari. It is very easy to make a GUI and such.
    But instead of coding it for yourself, I’m thinking the GUI will automatically code it. It’d be easier, and a possible hit with WISDK.

    I like the idea of a windows sdk a lot, but I don't think you should start a whole new installer just for app distribution. Just stay with Cydia so that jailbreaking has one standard installer.

    Aside from that great job

    I'm thinking about just getting a Mac for this, I have finally decided that it might just be worth it.
