iPhone Programming For Windows - New 2.0 Release of DragonFireSDK(March 14, 2012)
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
Zimusoft, Inc. has released version 2.0 of its popular DragonFireSDK iPhone Library for Windows which has already enabled thousands of Windows developers to write iPhone apps in C and C++ without ever leaving Microsofts familiar Visual Studio development environment. The product provides developers with a Windows on-screen iPhone Simulator that will run the apps they create, allowing them to test their iPhone apps even if they dont own an iPhone! Before DragonFireSDK, developing iPhone apps required that a programmer buy a Mac, learn the Objective-C language and begin a 6 month voyage to writing an iPhone app that should have been done in 6 weeks!
Our market is obviously Windows programmers most of them weekend warriors who want to feed the insatiable appetite that millions of iPhone owners have for apps, said Dave Edwards, Zimusofts Software Architect. Windows programmers by day are iPhone owners and they want to become iPhone programmers by night. No doubt, the iPhone is the most exciting new wireless device we have ever seen we all want to program it!
DragonFireSDK has almost no learning curve for C/C++ programmers. A simple new idea for a game can be brought to life in a couple of weeks in many cases. The iPhone is a playground for programmers so its fun, but its also a great resume item that can demonstrate initiative and the ability to grasp new technologies to future employers.
Yes, the leading iPhone/iPad SDK for Windows just got better!
The new 2.0 release of DragonFireSDK is available for both the iPhone and iPad. Notably, it now allows programmers easy access to the Box2D Physics library (by Erin Catto) which makes it easy to create games like the immensely popular Angry Birds (by Rovio). In addition, there is support for SQLite, In App Purchase, Game Center (high scores) and iAds. Other fundamental features include View Containers (of containers), Multi-line Edit, Internet Data Transfer, Text Editing, Image Control, GPS, Accelerometer, Camera, Multi-touch, Vibrate, Draw, File IO, Buttons, Bitmaps and Sounds. Everything you need is included to create a high-speed native iPhone or iPad app.
Users who bought DragonFireSDK 1.4 in the last 90 days can get the update for free by emailing support(at)zimusoft(dot)com. Others can upgrade for only $49.95. New users can choose the iPhone or iPad DragonFireSDK for only $99.95 or $149.95 for both.
Our internal motto is Code Can Be Beautiful and I believe we have created the most straight-forward API ever introduced, said Tim Sommers, Zimusoft Sr. Software Engineer. Colleges are using our product to teach programming, because the code is so readable and the learning curve so minimal. Even animating images only requires a few lines of code. Look for my sample soon to be released at CodeProject.com
