i would like to create a program for iphone

Post by Jaycloudz » Thu Dec 08, 2011 1:56 am

here is my question i would like to create a program for my iPhone i currently own a iPhone jailbreak of course i don't buy games and i would like to create my own and play them on my jail broken iPhone so where should i start with this i own a PC a decent one of course 8-) and i know that all the ios programming software are all meant for mac users but i don't like mac nor i would ever switch to the dark side :D but ive also notice that some people can create games with adobe flash cs5 which i own using action script so should i start with action script following tutos and maybe after a decade create a game or do the devs or any of you guys know any program for windows other then AFCS5 that can create and compile created games to the iPhone

PS do you guys have any experience with action script or other language or have successfully created a ios app if u do tutor me or mentor me lol

1) Learn programming with a decent language (like C)
2) Learn Objective-C language (standard iOS programming language) and proper object-oriented programming
3) Learn iOS SDK
4) Get a Mac (yeah, you can only program for iOS in Mac... theoretically)
5) Install iOS SDK (XCode and stuff)
6) Have fun

It would be better to learn iOS SDK with iOS SDK :)

Of course, but what I meant is read the documentation about how the applications are structured and how to design them properly before starting to type code. Usually unexperienced people love to start typying code without actually knowing what they're doing, which leads to awful apps. That's why I put the "install iOS SDK" after "learn iOS SDK".

Anyway keep in mind that for developing for iOS you need to pay Apple money (to test your app on a real device AND to upload your app to the Apple Store).

For all this, I gave up programming on iOS because it just puts too much obstacles for individual hobbyist programmers. I really recommend Android, it's way more open and free.

Of course you can compile on windows.

That way you won't have Apple tools like iPhone/iPad emulator... so pretty much useless.

Yeah there is no way of going around this one. You need to study objective-c first and then download xcode on a mac.
