Develop HTML and JavaScript Native iPhone Apps with NimbleKit

Develop native iPhone and iTouch apps using you HTML and Javascrip knowledge

Do you know how to code? What language are you familiar with? Everybody wants to code for the iPhone and iTouch this days, but not everybody is familiar with Objective-C, are you? Maybe you are a HTML or JavaScript ninja. Well, if you are , now you can develope native applications for the iPhone and iTouch with NimbleKit using that knowledge. By providing its own API on top of Cocoa Touch, NimbleKit allows would-be developers to access core iPhone functionality with Javascript functions. You can build an entire application using an HTML template with embedded Javascript, compile it and run it on your iPhone and iTouch.

NimbleKit provides functions for placing buttons, progress indicators, text and other native interface elements programatically. You can also do some styling with the HTML. Functions are available to stream Internet-based or embedded audio, search contacts, and read and process local and remote documents. The demo version of the development kit lets you run it through all of its paces, only stopping short of running it on your device. You can build and test in the iPhone Simulator to your heart’s content before making a purchase.

NimbleKit si definitely targeting fast app development. You might not be able to develope a kickass game with it, but you can create some badass static apps.NimbleKit is available to try with full functionality. You’ll need Xcode installed with the iPhone SDK, and you’ll still need to be a registered developer to get an app into the App Store. Since the iPhone SDK allows you to test on the Simulator without registering as a developer, you can actually put the entire process to the test before spending a cent (well, after the purchase of a Mac and the broadband line you’ll need to download the SDK … ). NimbleKit can be licensed for a one-time fee of $99, and a licensed copy can be used to create as many apps as you want. A project template is included with the kit to get you started.
