Excellent discussion on MonoTouch vs XCode/Objective C

I came across this recently and given that you get both sides of the story (well at least almost) its not a bad way of considering the two big options for iPhone development.

Some Big news from Apple – Monotouch is back in town…

Some big big news on the iPhone developer front particularly for the multi-class (Dungeons and Dragon reference) iPhone/.Net Developers.

http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2010/09/09statement.html

Specifically:

In particular, we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code. This should give developers the flexibility they want, while preserving the security we need.

I’ll keep you up to date from any statements from the Monotouch mailing lists. For a lot of .Net devs, who have been in a holding pattern over Monotouch for around 9 months, they are probably doing a little dance. ┬áThere had previously been some uncertainty on the legitimacy of using Monotouch to deploy to the iTunes store!!!!!
