    [How & What]
    iPhone Programming​

    Recently I have seen to many questions about the setting up portion of iPhone Programming. I figured I would answer a few general questions.

    Q: What programs do I need, and where can I get them.
    A: Generally you will find that most iPhone applications are developed on the Apple Official iPhone SDK. Apple released this quite a while ago and it has seemed to provide everything the developer needs, whether you be a beginner or professional developer.

    Q: Whats Objective-C? Were to learn?
    A: Objective-C is a reflective, object-oriented programming language which adds Smalltalk-style messaging to C. There are many recourses over at Apple's iPhone Developer Center.

    Q: Do you have to use a mac? Or is there a windows version?
    A: Mac only. Windows is not supported. Although you can try to set up a hackintosh.-centriod

    Q: Can I distribute apps for free?
    A: It costs $99 for a developer license to get the certificates and you will then be able to distribute apps for free and paid versions.-centriod

    Q: How do I learn to program object-c/iphone sdk
    A: developer.apple.com/iphone (memorize it ;]) & download all podcasts from itunes regarding iphone sdk. -centriod

    A: You will be developing the app (or should atleast) in the Iphone SDK so it will be compatible with the iphone and ipodtouch. They both have the same os but some applications only work on the iphone but all ipod touch apps work on iphone. Please correct me if i am mistaken.
