Does anyone know of a way to create native IOS apps without using OSX or XCode.  This includes not using an OSX virtual machine as well.

 

Thanks

Plenty of ways to create them without OSX (e.g. work in unity, marmalade, cocos, gamemaker, playcanvas). Not so many ways to test on device and submit to Apple.

Pretty much all of the toolkits C0lumbo mentions work by providing a pre-compiled shim (presumably originally compiled with XCode), that loads the rest of the game. You could set up such a shim for yourself fairly easily if you have temporary access to a Mac with XCode installed.

Is it an option for you to pick up a used Mac mini or something? Life will be much easier, if that is possible for you. The more time you can spend developing your game, and the less time fighting against Apple, the better, in my book.

That's a pretty broad generaliation, and pretty off-topic.

 

Think you missed the original post. I was suggestion a solution, but including a warning. Therefore, the comment was still on topic.

 

Languages were never brought into the discussion.
