    it depends on what you want to make in your app obvious if you want an application that simply opened and said 'hello world' in it then it would be pretty easy

    Whats your programming experience?

    Java, C? C++? object-c?

    For me it seems, if you have had some programming background that it won't be as hard as coming right into it without any prior experience.

    an Objective-C Foundation Tool "Hello, World" app would look like this

    Code:
    #import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
    
    int main (int argc, const char * argv[]) 
    {
        NSLog(@"Hello, World!");
        
        return 0;
    }

    Some are exceptional. =p It also can vary depending on how serious you are.

    I have an ebook named "Iphone Developer Cookbook" have not read much other than first chapter so no sure how useful it is but you may want to check it out.

    I found the book mentioned above a real help like above it depends how long you are going to devote to it as I really wanted to learn I spent all day everyday for 4 weeks.
