Yes, to compile apps locally for B4I you need a mac. Apps are compiled with xCode (the mac development tools) and they only run on OS X.

If you do not have a mac, you can purchase a subscription to the inexpensive remote (hosted) builder. B4I will then send your code to the remote computer to be compiled. I got to try this recently, and I think it is worth the money and works well.

Local Mac builder is software that you install on a mac to compile B4I apps on your own computer. It is included with B4I at no additional cost.

If you do not have access to a mac, you have the option of paying $26 per year for hosted builder. Hosted builder does same as local builder, but is for people who do not have a mac.
