Max apps to iphone?

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Can I run my max/msp applications into an iphone, sure in my mac works but do you need to convert the app into another file to be compatible with the iphone apps?

I didn’t understand what you want to do. A max patch is not compatible with Iphone OS. You can control your patch via Iphone using osc.

I didn’t test it but I heard good things about this app.

Maybe i did not quite explain myself :P, i made this ambient music generator and i just want to take it on my iphone to listen to it.

I was thinking that i am going to need to download the SDK development tools from apple and in some way transform my max app into java so i can run it on the iphone.

Probably this is not possible, i dont know hehehe i am just wondering

Well if you are talking about a complete reimplementation… sure it may be possible.

Running Max5 on the iPhone is not possible.

I’m really hoping Processing will work without much effort on Android. Looks promising…

i know openFrameworks can do iPhone, if you are thinking re-coding…

are there any words about max runtime on iPhone/iPad?
i thought the biggest thing about Max5 was its platform independence.
(and whatever happened to a linux version of Max5?)

I think it will worth if cycling guys will invest their time for an iphone/ipad version of max. In my opinion it will a limited version with max objects, msp signals that will help you to make music directly on your ipad. For jitter it will be maybe too complicated .

Actually I think it is doubtful that they would. Max is written with a cross
platform frame work called JUCE, I don’t think they will be adding iPhone
support to it anytime soon. The cost of converting this frame work and
the external library to run on a ARM processor to satisfy such
a small hardware user base makes no sense.

Forget the iPad, get an HP Slate when it comes out and you can run the
full version of Max to your hearts content.

Plus Apple now apparently forbids this in their insane developer’s “agreement” now.
