OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2011, so it's been almost a year since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. Nothing particularly earth-shattering going on here.

Utter bullshit.

Web apps can be built with any platform.

iOS-native ones can be built on any machine running a legal copy of MacOS and Xcode (just don't resell it yet).

Web apps ? Let's be serious for a second there. There's only so much things which a bit of Javascript which is not backed by a robust internet connection and a powerful distant server can do, and it's nowhere near what native iOS software (or Java 2 ME software for that matter) is capable of.

As for Hackintoshes, which you seem to suggest as an alternative to Macs for iOS development, I believe they do not count as a legal copy of Mac OS as far as Mac OS X's EULA counts. Don't know in which countries exactly this agreement is legally binding though.

It is quite a lot, I have written HTML apps, using JS and HTML and nothing else that are quite useful.

If the app has to connect to the outside you need network anyway ... so I don't understand the problem?
