the eclipse development environment can be used for android and iphone development. Its a cross platform, multi language IDE so it has the benefit of being the one thing you need to learn for multiple uses.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I want to develop the application myself. Which one of these applications can you recommend?

http://www.dragonfiresdk.com
http://www.appcelerator.com/
http://www.genuitec.com/mobile/

Or another one?

I've heard good things about appcelerator.com  - dragonfireSDK looks to be iphone specific , rather than crossplatform, same with mobieone ?

phonegap is another alternative http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Application-Development/PhoneGap-Simplifies-iPhone-Android-BlackBerry-Development-788189/

I didn't know there was an iphone plug-in for Eclipse. I've seen a couple of web pages where they show you how but they all say:"Using Eclipse to program applications for the iPhone is not without issues."

I love Eclipse and hate XCode. And if your guys have a plugin or something to create iPhone app in Eclipse, I'd love to have a link.
