Someone make an ios app that allows you to create IOS apps.

Tired of having an iPhone without the capabilities to create the apps. Would love an interface that allows me to code apps on a treehouse like workspace and implement them locally without having to go through the appstore.

Have windows pc unfortunately.

Hi Jason,

Sadly it wouldn't be possible to create such an app as the the compilers required to build the code into an executable require a jailbroken iOS device since you first need to install them along with a couple of other dependencies and have them run as root which app store apps have no access to.

If you're 100% interested in iOS development I recommend you have a look at the Mac mini range or a MacBook Air.
