    Okay you seem to have a few things wrong, so let me clarify

    1. The sdk is free! Only requirement is to have Leopard installed on your mac.
    2. The $99 comes in when you want to actually sell your apps in the app store. So you could make a few apps and then pay the $99. But I wouldn't recommend doing that because Apple has to approve of your joining, and that can take some time.
    3. When you sell an app in the app store you take 70%, apple gets 30%. If you app is 2.99 and in a week you get 2,000 downloads, you make $4,186!
    4. The sdk is worldwide, tons of countries have access to it, when you upload your app you have some translation options, meaning you can make your app available in certain countries and languages. The app I just finished doesn't have much wording, so I will make it available worldwide, just making the instructions translatable (Is that a word?)


    Hope that helped man, don't let me fool you I am still new at this stuff. But I know all my facts

    Ok, i've just started delving into iPhone development and such but what i'm attempting to work out, can i get an iPhone SDK developed app onto my iPod Touch for free or do i have to join the damned $99 SDK program? That's just for personal use atm.

    If you want to make money, pay the $99 (that sounds wrong :S), if you like the feeling of people downloading your apps, and you want it done straight away, add a repo, or whatever it's called, to Cydia or Installer.

    Yes you can, but you need to jailbreak your ipod. Look in this thread for more info on how do it http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=141704. "Build and Go" works for me, and I haven't paid 99$ yet

    You have to have a credit or debit card as far as I know and that gets taken out of the bank
