I'm running BOINC on both my Windows machine (Win 8.0) and my iMac (Lion). I also have an iPad 2 and would like to know if BOINC has or might develop software for the iPad 2 (iOS 7 or later).

Apple has locked down their app store too much, and charges a fee to list apps in their store. Until Apple changes their policies for applications like BOINC, it is unlikely that an app will be released for the iPad.

Is this still the case? How much of a fee? I am interested in kicking this off and taking care of the funding.

That said, hosting an app doesn't cost anything per my prior experience. Please elaborate? Thank you, Mark

You may want to send a message to Dr. Eric Korpela. I think he will be able to tell you more.

You may also want to pass by https://developer.apple.com/programs/start/ios/ on what Apple considers requirements to produce and distribute applications via their App Store.
