    Is it useful in making apps for the iPhone? No.
    Is it useful in making other apps? Yes.

    Well if you can program with visual basic it will be easier for you to learn other programming languages.

    And iPod touch apps are made with objective c.

    VB .NET can make it's own money, and with the MS app store there is potential there, that said I do VB .NET and C# coding, and decided to start from scratch in effect, learn the basics of C first, then objective-C, and then about iPod development (cocoa touch etc)

    Having taught myself originally C, then visual basic, .NET you really need to start at the basics, spend the time getting a good understanding of the basics before moving on. I'm certainly no expert but it'll help you avoid posts which have replies like 'read the documention', 'ROFLcakes', 'RTFM', etc, etc. Learn the basics, build them there

    True, it's an API, but you do still need to learn it if you want to develop a program with an interface you can control in the code. Otherwise you'll just learn Objective-C and only be able to write command line programs (which wouldn't even run on the iPhone). Most places though consider Cocoa/Cocoa touch something else that you need to learn if you want to do mac/iphone development

    I'd just call it a Next Step-like API, since it has been implemented by plenty of people since the time that Apple bought them.

    yeah cocoa touch isnt a language, but it is included in developing apps.
