1.9.7 seems to be broken on iPhone 3GS devices (see here: http://www.nimblekit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2990). Older, non-broken versions like 1.9.6 are not officially available (developer's comment: "We don't keep older versions").
So better make sure you get your hands on a stable version before buying or tell your users to buy an iPhone 4...

My dream has come true. I always wanted to make my own iPhone/iPad app, but never had the courage to dive into objective C.

I've been working for a month now on my first app (quite a big one, so will be while until completely done) but I'm blown away about the simplicity of the framework. A good selection of native elements is there to do most of the hard work, anything else you can do in HTML/javascript -- something I'm much more familiar with.

Plus the developer is probably the nicest and most responsive developer I've ever come accross, so if you're stuck don't worry. Neither the support forum nor the developer will leave you hanging.

Also, I had a small feature request -- and that was implimented within a week of posting it! What more do you want?

Lastly, there's a really useful companion book out by Kristofer Layon which is incredibly helpful to get you started and to take you though all the (tedious litte) steps involved in setting up your developer account, generating certificates etc. to test your app on an actual device, to ultimately distribute it on the app store and to market it.

Every now and then a developer comes along who not only turns out a quality product, but continues to work on it; is responsive and polite; and works with his customers to improve the product. Such is the case with Nimblekit. I know a bit of Objective-C, and have an iPhone program for sale written in it ("Scotch"). But writing for the iPhone/iPod/iPad is MUCH easier with NimbleKit, as long as you're not trying to write animated games. "NK" is worth checking out. Further, go visit the forum, and you can see how "Sunny" (the developer) and his customers actually get along. This is as they say in LA LA Land "the Real Deal."

Apple provided us a new way to reach a lot of users, and for people like me that have experience with web applications NimbleKit is absolutely perfect! The learning curve is very small because I can apply my knowledge on web apps to create professional apps on the iPhone.

This is important because I can make great ideas come live faster than if I had to learn my ways on Obj-C and even on this it help us, because it provides the ability to mix obj-c and javascript.

I was able to port one web app to the iphone in 2 days and enjoy the native functions like sqlite support, maps api that wasn't available to me before NimbleKit.

There a lot of applications out there relying on rss, templates, dashcode, these guys gave us a powerful tool to create applications with native elements without the pain to "emulate" them with css or some "magical" workarounds. Also performance is great. I have 3 apps on the app store approved and 3 more on the way. And $99 is not expensive, first because is one time fee only, also the support is great and that's whats make the difference, great tool with great support that you can rely on.

It's an excellent way to create iphone apps without the drudgery of coding in Obj C. Having said that, it's possible to use Obj C in addition to javascript - which makes it incredibly powerful. Previous to using Nimblekit I was writing my own code to utilise a local browser but Nk speeds up the process hugely.

So why did I choose this over free alternatives - in a word, support. The dev is incredibly helpful and responsive to users requests and questions and this alone warrants the price. The code is updated frequently and new features are constantly added.

As a way to combine native interface elements with the ease of html/css/javascript it's unsurpassed!

I've been using Nimblekit now for one week and i'm really satisfied. It is better than Phonegap and Quickconnect (sorry guys).If you know anything about html, css and javascript then you make in no time a great app for the iphone.

Nimblekit is an great way to get an iPhone application up and running. As of this post there are no apps I know of in the app store that are built with it, but the potential for this to be a platform that web developers can use to develop enterprise level applications that can integrate with some funky written javascript and XML is pretty phenomenal.

You don't need any Obj-C knowledge, although I'd recommend a fundamental knowledge of the XCode SDK. I think this app is great for prototyping apps withing 2-3 days instead of within 4-5 weeks and the web team can build something with their designers before handing over to Obj-C developers which is very empowering.

Despite this, I think there is a very real chance that apps made with NimbleKit will actually behave so well that they are accepted straight into the app store with much less expertise and development time as truly 'native' apps.

Love it, top work guys! Can't wait to see more features and some more integration with the OS such as SQLite support
