I recently installed monotouch, and was evaluating, but having installed Xamarin Studio, not I cannot compile or test anything without a trial licence. The only thing that compiles is hello world! Cannot look at anything with SQLite.
Also, disapointed that Visual Studio support is not in indie edition.
As an indie, i wanted to do a bit of development to test the environment before buying a licence, now I am limited to a short trial period.
Personally, I preferred the old licensing scheme, I won't be able to afford $999 per platform. The indie pricing is OK, but why exclude Visual Studio support???
