Mobile development.

I saw earlier on Smashing a list of things required to make and sell an iphone application. Here it is:
Below is a list of items you’ll need (*starred items are required, the rest are nice-to-have’s):

  • join the Apple iPhone Developer Program ($99) *
  • get iPhone or iPod Touch *
  • get an Intel-based Mac computer with Mac OS X 10.5.5,
  • prepare a Non-Disclosure Agreement (here’s a sample) *
  • download and install the latest version of the iPhone SDK if you don’t already have it.
  • a spiral bound notebook*

You then develop in their IDE and distribute it with their app store.
I have correspondingly made my android app checklist:

  • A computer. Win, Mac, or Linux.
  • The SDK (free).

You then develop with any IDE, right down to nano if you want, and can distribute as easily as putting the file anywhere on the internet.

Hmm…
