    Hello!! I'm new in the forum, I wanted to know what it's the best way to start programming apps for the Ipod Touch. What do I need? I only know C++ language.

    Thanks for your time. Greetings from Spain!!

    I'm in the exact same situation as you...
    For iPhone development, you need to know Objective-C, which is based on C. If I were you, right now I would learn C, and then join ADC (Apple Developer Connection), and download Objective-C documentation. Bottom Line. Learn C Now, Objective-C later, then start developing.

    Cheers and Good Luck!

    P.S. Use Dev-C++ as a C compiler, and the iPhone SDK as a O-C compiler.

    I started learning objective-c, with no prior knowledge of any coding languages, and its been a little over 2 months. I've already created multiple applications. It's really not that hard.


    EDIT: I encourage you to look into the SDK though, as 2.0 is arriving.
