App Development Coming To Windows

May 27, 2010 by  

As we slowly inch and inch each day, getting closer to June 7th and the long awaited keynote by Steve Jobs more and more tidbits start surfacing. 3 different iPhone prototypes in testing, just incase the other 2 don’t work out. Safari may get the ability to handle plugins. And now Steve Ballmer of all people will be at WWDC during the keynote?!@#

Wait what?! That monkey goon will be presenting during Steve Job’s keynote? I mean just take a second and look at this guys mug…THIS is the guy who is in charge of all of Microsoft after Bill Gates? What a weird and horrible choice…

In all seriousness Steve Ballmer does creep me out, and automatically fill me with rage just by looking at his face. I’m not sure if it’s because he’s just an idiot or it’s something about his face… Either way, the speculation is that if he is coming to present shortly during the keynote it obviously has something to do with the iPhone. Since this WWDC is all about apps, and seemingly hardly about OS X. I’m just slightly bitter about it. The internetz are guessing that this rumor means that the Windows operating system will finally see the light of day and get the ability to somehow develop native iPhone apps. Previously this was only possible using Apple’s Xcode tools which only ran on, yup you guessed it, OS X!

So is this rumor, and the possibility of it being true good news? Does Apple really want to open up app development to all of the weird and nerdy developers on Windows? Just think if the philosophy of Windows apps made it’s way onto the iPhone…… I’m shuddering in fear. This may be a good reason and example why Apple has to approve apps before they make them in the app store. They have to feel right for the iPhone and not disrupt what us users are used to. Especially when considering UI and functionality. Any app with a horrible UI automatically puts me off, so I hope these developers step it up with their UI’s if this is true.

Honestly though I’m all for bringing the tools to more people. All joking aside from how bad the Windows UI’s are and how nerdy their developers are, we’re all nerds, it’ll be great to give the chance to ANYONE with a computer to develop for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, etc… I’ll be very interested and watching to see if this rumor comes to fruition. Apple’s known for their elegant solutions and I think they’ll have to deliver on this one. Microsoft’s new phones have even better competition now if there are two mobile platforms to develop for on Windows. You can even consider 3 counting android. Interesting times these are.
