If you are working with Haskell and making iPhone apps, or if you intend to soon, please fill in your info below. By helping each other out, we can work more productively and have more fun.There are at least two ways to use Haskell to make iPhone apps. One is having a Haskell-to-iPhone compiler, which would probably cross-compile from another host environment (probably Mac OS X). Another way is to write Haskell programs that generate iPhone-compatible code when run (rather than when compiled), based on an embedded DSL, similarly to Compiling Embedded Languages.

GHC as a cross compiler
GHC has full support for cross compiling to iOS: See https://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building/CrossCompiling/iOS
Jhc as a cross compiler
Jhc has full support for cross compiling to the iPhone. Information on how to do so is in the jhc manual under Cross Compilation. Basically, you just add the following to your ~/.jhc/targets.ini
[iphone] cc=arm-apple-darwin-gcc merge=le32
and then invoke jhc with the --cross and -miphone options.
