You can now develop and test apps with a Windows PC

Microsoft tells us that it talked to Apple about this functionality and that it has its rival's blessing and that the Live Player application complies with all of Apple's usual rules. Microsoft has also introduced a tool for iOS app development.

Microsoft finally released Visual Studio for Mac during the Build developer conference in Seattle May 10, almost half a year after releasing a preview version of the developer toolkit in New York City. "It goes from being kind of a sixty-second thing to five minutes or seven minutes, and suddenly, it's slowing you down".

E-Book and digital comic developers that made apps for iOS normally had to buy a MAC in order to write and test their code. The company called the tool "a live coding environment", which essentially means developers can build, test, and debug apps without having to install SDKs or emulators. You can, for example, make live edits to your code while it is running and immediately see the result of a color change, for example, on your phone.

Aside from creating apps, Visual Studio 2017 is also equipped with a powerful debugger, full-featured source editor, and Git integration. In fact, Microsoft also released Visual Studio for Macs at the event, allowing developers who prefer Macs to build apps on Visual Studio the same way they would on Windows.
