DragonFireSDK is a Windows iOS development kit created by Texas-based technology startup Zimusoft. The SDK is so far the only way to do iPhone and iPad development on Windows for the entire development and distribution process. It allows developers to use C and C++ to develop applications using Visual Studio or Visual Studio Express. Zimusof is responsible for packaging applications and handling developer submissions to Apple's App Store on behalf of its customers. Developers submit their apps to Zimusoft after development and testing on their own Windows PCs. Pricing for DragonFireSDK is $49.

What's New in DragonFireSDK 2.0?1. Containers
DragonFireSDK adds container support. This means that you can group your views as well as other containers (and containers within containers, and so on...) together and treat these groups as single entities.
Box2D is included in the "box" with DragonFireSDK. This will make it possible to create an app like the blowout hit Angry Birds with DragonFireSDK.
3. SQLite Support
DragonFireSDK now supports creating and interacting with SQLite databases. This powerful new feature will allow you to have local databases in your apps that you can query to your heart's content!
DragonFireSDK now supports multi-touch. Your previous DragonFireSDK code base is already compatible with this feature. There's no need to change a thing - simply recompile on DragonFireSDK 2.0 and your app will have multi-touch enabled!
5. Game Center Support
DragonFireSDK now supports Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements. Just set up your leaderboards and achievements in iTunes Connect and it's a snap to update these in your DragonFireSDK apps!
6. In-App Purchase
DragonFireSDK now supports the "built-in" model of In-App Purchase. It's super easy to add a store to your app for unlocking content or removing ads, or anything else you might think of. All you need to do is set up your store in iTunes Connect and it's a breeze to add a store to your existing apps!
7. Camera / Photo Album Support
DragonFireSDK will now allow you to use the device's camera or photo album and save photos from each one to your app's Documents folder!
8. Multi-line Edit
DragonFireSDK now supports multi-line editing as well as static text. Get ready to write those novels!
9. Load Assets from Documents
DragonFireSDK now allows you to load assets (images, sounds, and MP3 files) from the Documents folder. This means that if you save a photo to Documents, now you can load it into a view in your app. You could also use NetSend() to create files in Documents to add more assets to your apps!
