Ireland-based dev/hacker Steve Troughton-Smith definitely won Apple Twitter this week with his incredible uses of his homemade tool, marzipanify, to deploy tons of popular iOS apps on his Mac. Here’s his blog post about how it’s done.
The current version of macOS contains the first previews of UIKit apps running on the desktop, and Apple is expected to open that capability to outside developers at WWDC this June. This will allow popular iPad apps to be ported to the Mac without requiring developers to build a separate app. Troughton-Smith has experimentally rolled his own way to do this, and he’s proving that bridging these platforms is a good idea.
