New Window App allows programming for iPhone!

Clearly, DragonFireSDK didn't get approval from Apple. If you want to  
use your app on your iPhone, you have to upload it to a server, where  
it will be compiled with XCode. The website says you can distribute  
your app as if it were created on a Mac, but it isn't clear to me  
whether you can actually sell your app in the iTunes store (an "App  
Store" is mentioned). If DragonFireSDK had received approval, then the  
workaround and vague statements on the website wouldn't be necessary.  
I admire their courage :-)
