I didn't get very far because you can't go past their front page without 
signing up, and that page doesn't give any info. But the picture looks 
like it's a tool for the Mac that creates iOS apps. So what I meant was, 
it isn't creating code on an iPhone, it's creating code on a Mac and 
then installing it on an iPhone just like we do.

Only...there's no code apparently so it's all moot. How odd.
