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.
