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,

Interesting.  

Is there more than one language compatible with iPhone and iPad.
No, not that I know
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?
