    There are tools for creating things, like scripts, C programs, etc on Windows, but the iOS development platform runs on Apple computers. In the past, it is possible some poor soul may have tried to port it to Windows, but keeping it current would be impossible.

    Trying to port the iOS SDK to Windows would be a mighty feat (not something I would recommend using for production projects)--but for Cydia apps, as long as your code is solid, there are FOSS ARMv6/v7 compilers and dpkg-buildtools can be built from C(++) source for Windows. Not the easiest route, but doable.

    GNU ARMô toolchain for CygWin, Linux and MacOS (arm-elf-gcc, the ARM compilation tool)
    Debian -- Package Search Results -- dpkg (source for dpkg etc.)

    You probably can't efficiently create an app on an iPhone, though I think it's theoretically possible (use nano or vi or similar to write the code, then compile through the terminal. I'd strongly suggest using an OS X or Linux/UNIX computer to develop on, however.
