I want to learn the ways of ipod touch

Post by dragonxtamer596 » Thu Jan 03, 2013 1:26 am

My first question is what languages can you program ipod touch games with?
My second is where are some resources at?
Do you have to jailbreak your ipod touch?

You could always just resort to using a VM if you really wanted to.

That depends on what iPod Touch model you have for the Jailbreaking part. I have the new 5th Generation, so I cant jailbreak mine yet. It also matters becuase of your ios version. Im running ios 6.1.2, to find out, go to settings, general, about and it will say software verion. or just get an app called isettings and it will say iphone software: x.x.x if you hve a fourth gen (front facing camera, back camera, no flash,)or a 3rd gen (no cameras at all, colored backgrounds) 2nd gen (black backgrounds, no cameras,) 1st gen (same as 2nd except no speaker at all, need headphones) all except for 5th gen are hackable. must be running ios 6.0 or under.

I can tell you about the official way...

You need a Mac (yeah that sucks), and then the SDK and all the tools are free for you to download.
You develop in Objective C, which is a somewhat weird language that I learned to appreciate. It combines well with C/C++, and in that case people talk about "Objective C++".
At this point you can program and test what you do on the iPhone/iPad simulator. If you want to test on a real device, you'll have to pay 99$ to Apple, which in turn allows you to publish on the AppStore (but Apple controls what you submit and can refuse it for whatever reason they feel like).

I remember I started with some Hello World app on the iPhone but those are now completely outdated :D
Then I quickly used cocos2d and they have tutorials and everything to get you going with that:

Sorry.
