There I was just about to strongly suggest you use a real-man's coding interface: vi but then I read that you need Xcode to sign iPhone apps. So brings me to two quite possible suggestions: do what everyone else did for decades and still do by not bothering with Apple users or buy a Mac mini: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5768438/xcode-alternative
Apple has some refurbished ones in their store, not much cheaper tho...
Quite the locked down world they have isnt it.
Looking around the cheapest i can get a mac pro for is £700 (with about as much power as a wasp). I am impressed at the prices for 2-5 year old hardware though 😞
I guess ill just have to suck it up and get a mini or investigate how much getting some other poor sod to do it for me haha.
Unfortunatly until apple lose more market share its not a platform I can afford to overlook.
