iPhone App Directory

Will there ever be on board languages for the iPhone?

I was thinking about iziBasic the other day and missing having the ability to start tinkering around with some code on my old Treo 650 and being able to build an app right there and then.

To be fair I never got around to making anything earth changing on the palm, but there were a bunch of languages like iziBasic, PocketC and onBoard C that have been around for a long time and have a good community of users.

I don't know if this sort of stuff will continue on Palm's 'classic' environment, but I just can't see it happening on the iPhone somehow, although I think it would be great even in a sandboxed kind of a way.

As i know, it is impossible now. IPhone Developer Program License Agreement forbid such type of applications.

That's such a shame. It would be great to have something like Pixilang on the iPhone.

There is javascript through the browser, which with some of the HTML 5 extensions in safari like local data stores and the canvas, is quite full featured. But there's no access to any audio functionality yet, afaik.

The other question, is will there ever be another update to iziBasic?
