Novell Tool Opens IPhone to .Net Developers by PC World: Yahoo! Tech

The MonoTouch software development kit lets developers write an application using .Net and then produces a native iPhone-compatible application. "It enables .Net developers to target the iPhone," said Joseph Hill, product manager for Mono at Novell.

Currently, developers write in Objective-C, a language that is not otherwise widely used, to build applications that comply with Apple's requirements for the iPhone. "What this does is bring a different kind of developer who might have been trying to figure out how to leverage the iPhone but didn't have the skills or didn't want to engage in a unique development environment," said Al Hilwa, an analyst at IDC.
