I have dabbled in some programming, but want to start some iphone developing.
What are the apps that i need to start ?

I had a really cool idea that, if done properly, should be a success.
The app is called Cocktail. You start up the app and you are greeted by a parchment style menu (like EA's sudoku but without the Japanese background), it gives you a few options: random cocktail, saved mixes, search and submit your own.
You tap on the random cocktail option and the menu slides aside to the left to reveal a cocktail mixer. At the bottom of the screen there is an instruction it says simply: Shake to get your cocktail. You shake and out pops a scroll with the mix! On this scroll there are three options: Save cocktail, tell a friend and shake again.
You tap on the saved mixes menu item and you get a list of your saved cocktails in alphabetical order that you can search.
You tap on the search option and a search bar pops up, it allows you to type anything related to the cocktails your looking for. Once you get a result, you a parchment pops up with the recipe and you have three option at the bottom of the screen: Save, Tell a friend and Back to search.
You tap on submit your own, up pops a blank parchment with place holders for title and ingredients once you fill those in there's a button at the bottom of the screen that you press to publish.
I repeat, if this app is done correctly with a beautiful and well designed user interface and at the right price, it could shine.

Apples iPhone Developer Program would be a good place to start.
