I saw an interesting post yesterday (with a couple pics) indicating that Mono, the Open Source implementation of .NET, has been ported to the iPhone, or at least it’s been started. That’s pretty interesting, and it makes me wonder two things: First, are .NET apps realistic for the iPhone? And second, WWSHD?
It’s certainly interesting to think that all those talented .NET programmers out there could have a chance at programming for the iPhone, and that any of a variety of apps could be ported or even natively run in the future.
A little proof:
