Hello Experts,

I am revising my old post (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Apple/Programming/Q_26479956.html) because that was not complete in it self.

My Requirements are:

1. I want to develop an IPhone/IPad Stande alone application (not website)
2. I want to use C#.
3. I dont have Apple computer, is there any way to develop application on Normal computers having Windows 7?
4. My Application will have some Audio features.
5. Is it possible to use MonoTouch (http://monotouch.net/) with my requirement?

Please help!

as you can read from http://monotouch.net/Documentation/Installation
Basic Requirements
To begin using MonoTouch, you will need to have: Apple's iPhone SDK 3.2 or higher, available from Apple's iPhone Dev Center (http://developer.apple.com/iphone/).
An Intel Mac computer running MacOS 10.5 or 10.6 (Leopard or Snow Leopard).
The latest release of Mono for OSX

Hi there!
iPhone/iPads/iPods apps are written in Objective -C not in C#. C# is a Microsoft technology which is not the platform for Apple iOS. In order to develop applications for iPhone (iOS) you need a iOS SDK download from Apple's site. You need to be a registered developer. You need a license to test your applications on a real Hardware. You need a PC/Laptop which runs Mac OS X. You need Objective C compiler and Apple IDE which all comes with Mac OS X. You can't develop for Apple on Microsoft platform, they are nothing to do with each other.
Though you can develop applications for Android on Windows running PC as they are on Java not Objective -C.
Cheers,
t.

Monotouch is just an SDK which requires MacOS X to run and basically provides an interface to iOS.
The requirements paragraph and the bottom of the page says it all.
In order to get started building MonoTouch applications for the iPhone we’ll need a few things:

    * An Intel Mac Computer Running MacOSX 10.5 or 10.6 (Leopard or Snow Leopard)
    * Apple’s iPhone SDK 3.0 or Higher
    * The Current Version of Mono
    * MonoTouch SDK
    * An IDE such as MonoDevelop or XCode, or a Text Editor program

it appears to me, it's a violation of the license agreements with Apple (to run an OS X system on non-Apple hardware)
