xcode for non mac users
anyone know if there is a way around xcode if you don't have a mac?
While there are several ways to develop iOS applications on Windows, most of them break the Apple EULA. You could run OS X in a VM, as Michael suggested, but it'll be slow. You could attempt to build a Hackintosh, but those are prone to breaking with updates (and even without them).
The only way to develop iOS apps reliably is to buy a Mac. You can get refurbished Mac Minis fairly cheap.

I don’t think there’s any Xcode packages for Windows. The only solution I know of is to setup a virtual machine (VirtualBox is free and reliable) with Mac OS Installed and in turn Xcode.
