How to Get Started in iPhone App Development

With Apple’s app store reaching 3 billion app downloads in early 2010, the demand for iPhone development is guaranteed to grow at a rapid pace in the near future. Developing for the iPhone can be a daunting task, but with the right tips and knowledge, it’s a lot easier than you might think. In this article, I’ll go over a few places to start learning how to develop apps for the iPhone.

Places to start learning how to develop iPhone apps:

1. Download Apple’s iPhone SDK. I recommend doing this before anything else. The cost is $99 and it will allow you to register as an iPhone developer. This will allow you to submit apps to the app store and will also give you the basics on how to develop these kinds of apps. Apple’s SDK isn’t a complete in-depth bible for this type of development, but it does give you the tools you need to get started.

2. Start reading iPhone development books: Reading is one of the best ways to learn anything and this is no different. I would recommend buying books offline and reading them and then saving them for reference if you need to look at them in the future. There are plenty of books to choose from, so be sure to read the reviews to make sure they’ll provide you with the iPhone development knowledge you’re looking for.

3. Sign up for the iPhone development forums – This is also recommended as it allows you to participate in the iPhone development community. You will be able to read examples, tutorials and even ask questions. This is completely free and the information will be updated daily.

4. Develop apps: One of the best ways to learn is to gain hands-on experience. Even if your app isn’t app store ready, simply coding anything will help give you the experience you need. Start coding today and you will know more than yesterday! Practice makes perfect!

5. Read iPhone Development Tutorials and Blogs – There are tons of blogs that help teach others how to develop for the iPhone. Find these blogs and visit them often. Ask questions if you have any.

The internet contains tons of information about iPhone development just waiting for you to find it. Do a simple search online and you’ll be on your way to developing apps faster than you think.
