Is there any hope to a person who wants to create iOS app without a Mac?

#1 Post by Nanahs » Sat Dec 15, 2018 5:32 pm

Hello!
I'm working on a game that is not commercial. It'd just be a gift to my friends.
It wouldn't be distributed or anything on Apple Store.

The problem is that I have no Apple devices to work on the Xcode file Renpy provides.
I really wanted to creat the iOS file and test the game on my friends phone to see what it would look like.

But I guess it's not possible at all? Since I use Windows.
Here where I live I can't find a mac to rent or borrow from someone. And I can't buy one now.

I think I have no options, right? hah
I could create apk, but I just don't know what to do about iOS. Or even if there's something I can do.

Does anyone have any idea?

Apparently it's an issue for other people here too.

Thanks.

IOS is terrible system for creating your apps without Jailbreak.
You still need to approve it on AppStore anyway... It is headache, you need to pay Apple account (100$ every year, as I can see)...
It is absolutely terrible...

That is why I don't like IOS.

Yeah, that's true. Too bad that they make it so difficult. Especially for people who are not professional game makers.

Of course, there is, don't worry! I had a friend who faced the same problem as you and he ended up creating one of the top-selling apps on an app store. Everything you need to do is to commit yourself and never question your decisions. Believe in yourself, believe that you can create iOS apps without a Mac and everything will be great, believe me.
Thank you! :)
