iOS Converters

Hello Experts,

I am currently taking a C# course and know that there are converters out there that take C# code and convert it to a iOS app, but would those be sufficient for More advanced apps and Mac applications or should I worry about some memory leaks and security that the converter may oversee?

The reason why I ask this is because I have been also wondering about iOS programming. The majority of apps that I anticipate making would be e-commerce linked to a SQL server. However, if those converters will be sufficient, will it be possible if I avoid the entire iOS environment?

Thank you,

You need to try and stick to the native language in order to have the most control of your development practices.  If your coming from a c syntax based background or taking that in school than the Frankenstein language of objective c should not be that difficult to learn.  So my professional opinion and in the experience I have had with code generator engines that convert c# to objective c is that in more complex apps, they suck.  Something you may want to look at though is mono touch.  It works a little differently than straight converting based technologies.  That uses c# syntax.

So, iOS works with objective c?

What about Java as it claims to be cross- platform?

iOS with Objective-C yes.  XCode is the development IDE you would use.  Apple doesn't let you run java apps on iOS but, if it were for a mac then yes Java would be an option.
