10 Useful Applications For iPhone Developers

Today I decide to prepare good collection of very useful applications for iPhone developers. Here are ten most important tools (or resources) which you can (even should) use for iPhone development.

1. iOS Dev Center

Firstly, of course – documentation center. Here are present all necessary documentation: articles, guides, samples, reference, forum etc. SDK 4 available too.

2. FTP On The Go

How to work? Of course, we will need to have any FTP software to us. ‘FTP On The Go’ allow us use FTP to manage with your project (work with files, folders, permissions). Also this have built in text editor, so I sure that it will become most important first application to you.

3. jQuery reference

As for me – this is most useful book (last year – often working with jQuery). So having such book – very useful. Between, this is not single similar book, same author already made next books: PHP Cheat Sheet, HTML Cheat Sheet, CSS Cheat Sheet, RegEx Cheat Sheet and MySQL Cheat Sheet. Commonly, this is possible to find another similar references (I already located another jQuery reference manual), but it was a little more expensive.

4. iPhone Remote Debug Console

Meant to give greater visibility and interactivity on your iPhone/iPod Touch while doing development. I grew frustrated having to go through the “include console.log statement then reload” method of debugging. I wanted something similar to Firebug’s fantastic console and debugger.

This app will help you to edit/view html and css documents. This also have syntax highlight and other functional.

10. Textastic – Syntax Highlighting, FTP, SFTP, Dropbox

Possible this is best text editor available for now. Highlights more than 80 different types of files while you’re typing; HTML, XML, Objective-C, C#, PHP, Perl, Python, SQL, JavaScript, CSS, Tex, shell scripts, and many more. Also it able to connect to FTP and SFTP servers. Also, this is very fast editor (written on objective-C language).
