Our newest technology break-through for iPhone, iPad and iPod app development means Windows users can now create native iOS apps and webapps without owning a Mac or knowing Objective-C. These two Apple requirements are “hidden costs” that quickly add-up to thousands of dollars and make the prospect of creating native iOS apps even more daunting. But now, for the first time (yes, really), you can use your existing Windows computer to create the same native apps you see in Apple's App Store only for a lot less money by using what you already own, and without having to learn a new developer language. **Learn more at the jump**

Nice if you want to create HTML5 web apps for iOS... but do realize it is a code generator. They even say on their site that graphical element customizations you make can be overwritten if you are not careful. It is also $99/year for a generator? For that price I want to be able to write my own code and have full control of every aspect of the development.

Thanks for the comment, Martyr2. You're right it is a code generator, but only in one aspect and for a type of user who doesn't know code but wants a native iOS app. For example, just an hour ago, I talked to an electrician who is using MobiOne to create a directory of his schematics to share with other electricians, he knows nothing about code but has a good idea for the App Store. In this case code generation is perfect for him and will get him the app he can sell to his peers.

Advanced users, such as yourself and many DZone members, can dive into the code to make the exact changes you want - just save your changes and nothing will be overwritten, but as corporate-speak goes we have to say "be careful." Hope that helps.
