iPhone Software Development Tools are plenty, but I recommend only a handful of them for creating killer iPhone apps that stand apart. Being a CEO of Mobile App Development Company, I can say I’ve acquired a reasonable, if not detailed insight about the various iPhone Software Development Tools, on the basis of which I can suggest a few.
Apart from iOS SDK, I find following iPhone Software Development Tools very useful:
- Unity (or Unity3D): This is an amazing game engine that’s cross platform compatible supporting various mobile platforms including iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry, etc. With Unity, one can write a highly stable code compared to other languages. I can say it is an ideal pick for 2D, 3D and Physics based games.
In fact, at Space-O, we already created a few such games using Unity, that include CricketFight, Caribbean Ludo, MadBox, Plane Rush, Pig City: The Quest For Freedom Find the Coin, Find the Coin, Eat Fish, Full Tilt, etc. Check them out here at: www.spaceotechnologies.com/projects/2d-3d-games
- Wikitude: The reason I’m personally prefer this tool is because I feel this is the best Augmented Reality (AR) SDK and in fact it has also been voted “Best Augmented Reality Browser” by the AR community 4 years in a row. It was the first publicly available software that used a location-based approach to AR.
- PhoneGap: PhoneGap gets my vote for the ease, economy and efficiency it offers to all mobile app developers including iPhone. It is exceptionally flexible supporting up to 7 different mobile platforms and also works well with other software like Wikitude, Wink Toolkit among others.
- Sencha Touch: I like Sencha Touch because it allows us to build beautiful user interfaces for iPhone web applications and yet render a native-app-like experience with similar look and feel.
The best part is it’s free and has no limitations on the number of apps to be developed with it. To put it in simple words, we can create infinite iPhone apps with no per seat or per user payments. Great, isn’t it?
Hope these iPhone Software Development tools will help to create killer apps with high value and better juice for users. And to do so you can even outsource our iPhone App Development Services.
