Dont think so, you have to result to iOS programming, but it is mabye possible with Mono (plugin for the .NET framework for Apple).

I guess Mono is for Linux.. Correct me if I am wrong

Looks universal but...

1 solution

Currently it is not possible to execute a C# desktop application on iPad. This is because a .NET application requires the .NET Framework to be installed on the top of the OS. Since there is no .NET Framework version available for the iPad devices, it is not possible.

You will have to wait till the release of .NET Framework for the iPad .

that mean i need to redevelope my app on ios to work on ipad
bbirajdar 8-Aug-12 7:27am
Yes.. You need to redevelop the application for iPad..

Of course you can minimize the efforts by creating webservices for business layer and consuming it in applications with different platform. This way instead of a complete re-develop, you need to redevelop the UI layer only and business layer can be common for all platforms..
