    Learn C++, get xCode for the Mac, install the SDK and get going.

    get the 2.0 iphone toolchain (u can use it for the ipodtouch too), and download the sampleapplication wich was made by gojohnnyboy (it is easy to find ot in that forum).

    Copy all the files that u downloaded in a directory on ur ipod( via SSH) and in this directory u open the SSH(!)Terminal und type "make"

    Tzen go to the Application folder (wixh contains all the .app folders) make a new directory called URAPPNAMEHERE.app and put the compiled file in there.

    The last thing u need now is a info.plist file wich can also find gery easy in this subforum

    U dont need a mac, if u want to use the SDK u need a running osx leopard10.5.3 wich can also be installed on a processor that provides SSE3

    But it is possible much easier with the toolchain because it doesnt need a mac

    And u don't have to learn c++, but objectiv-c

    It takes time to learn Objective-C. It took me atleast a month and a half before I actually understoood it. All you have to do is give it time and take it piece buy piece. The way I did it was read through all the tutorials I could find. The first like 3 times they don't make sense but after a while it starts to make sense. Look for some simple source codes after you understand it a little and see if you can see how things work.

    But to answer you question, learn C or C++ first so you can get an understanding of like variables, functions, pointers, etc. Then move on to learning obj-c bit by bit. It might take a while but you'll get it eventually.

    in order to learn ObjC you need to know c++ first
