B4i (iOS): Yup, you read that right!

Amazing news from Anywhere software: Erel is working on B4i! This development suite for cross development (Android/Mac/Windows/Linux) will be joined by iOS.

After the great success of Basic4Android (simply the best development tool for Android, by far), Erel suprised us all with Basic4Java last year. A free! tool to create cross platform software for Mac, Windows and Linux.

And now, he has an ever bigger suprise: Basic4iOS!
Just like it’s brother B4A, B4i will compile to native code (Objective C in this case). Combined with the powerful IDE (Xojo, check this one out, it’s bug free and blazing fast) with its unique debugging capabilities and features, this is a certain winner, again!

As a Windows developer, you won’t even need a Mac to compile:

…The current plan is to host a cloud of Macs for the compilation which means that developers will not need to have access to a Mac computer. There will also be an option to host the remote Mac compiler locally instead of the cloud compilers…

And the clever debugging tricks well known from B4A will also be at your fingertips:

…The rapid debugger will allow modifying the code without rebuilding the package making the “testing cycle” much quicker…

It’s simply amazing how Anywhere Software can build such powerful (and most of all stable and reliable) development tools in such a short time span. And at a price that dwarfs the competition!

Well done Erel! We are looking forward for this little beauty by the end of this year. It’s gonna be great, I’m sure of that!
