The goal of the iphone-dev(http://code.google.com/p/iphone-dev/) project is to create a free, portable, high quality toolchain to enable development for the Apple iPhone and other embedded devices based on the ARM/Darwin platform.


The goals of the iPhone-Linux(http://code.google.com/p/iphone-linux/) project are to port the full 2.6.x Linux operating system to the Apple iPhone, to create a system whereby users can easily use Linux on their iPhone, and to facilitate interoperability between Linux and Darwin/ARM.

But your iPhone readers are out of luck because of a grave bug on MobileSafari -- Plone sites are especially slow like molasses on the iPhone. Don't worry, here's a trick that will solve it."

iPhone Applications in Python

Writing iPhone applications is easy. Well, if you are willing to wait until Apple provides the ability to run their SDK-based applications on actual hardware. Until then, you are forced to go through a quite long list of steps(http://www.saurik.com/id/5).

HOWTO: iPhone Applications for the Linux User

"The iPhone and iPod Touch haven taken the mobile market by storm. Apple's AppStore is full of interesting applications that take advantage of the two devices's capabilities. But what's in there for Linux users? Sadly, GTKPod and Amarok can not yet transfer files on an iPhone with the 2.x firmware upgrade, but there are other interesting ways your iPhone can interact with your Linux desktop and even servers(http://www.linux.com/feature/153135)."

Jonathan Zdziarski: iPhone Open Application Development: Write Native Applications Using the Open Source Tool Chain, 2008 ""Great for beginners -- even if you don't know object-oriented programming, you can learn from examples on the 'Net and be on your way very soon. You will be able to confidently build apps that rival the ones included by Apple itself." -- Josh Content, iPhone Developer Developers everywhere are eager to create applications for the iPhone, and many of them prefer the open source, community-developed tool chain to Apple's own toolkit. In this new edition of iPhone Open Application Development, author Jonathan Zdziarski covers the latest version of the open toolkit -- now updated for Apple's iPhone 2.x software and iPhone 3G -- and explains in clear language how to create applications using Objective-C and the iPhone API. Zdziarski, who cracked the iPhone code and built the first fully-functional application with the open toolkit, includes detailed recipes and complete examples for graphics and audio programming, games programming with the CoreSurfaces and CoreImage interfaces, working with iTunes, and using sensors. With the open toolkit and this book, you can build iPhone applications that: Display status bars, preference tables, and other standard elements of the iPhone user interface Play pre-recorded files or program-generated sounds Read and write plain text files and HTML files, including pages from the Web, and control display elements, such as scrollbars Read and respond to changes in orientation when the user turns the phone around."
