    I really want to start making programs for the ipod touch. I have previous experience in coding but not this way. What programs do i need? Is there a sdk? Is there a API? Oh ya i am on a windows xp machine.

    1) Buy a Mac
    2) Learn Objective C, or I suppose Java might work.

    Or, I suppose you could wait for an SDK, (rumors have it one might be released as early as next year). As it stands right now, I think I'll just buy a Mac and learn Objective C. It can's be all that different from C++ (my preferred language) or C#.

    In a quasi-related topic -- where would one go about learning C++ without taking classes? I'm in high school and the community college near me doesn't offer C++ unless you take 4 semesters of useless classes -- plus I don't have time to take another college course. Can someone recommend a website or ebook to start with, thanks.

    You'd need to do this on a mac as these .app's are written in either objective C or java and can only be compiled on a mac afaik.
