    Well, I've been diving into this book on Cocoa programming for Mac OS. I've been able to write some simple stuff on Leopard, like tables that gather data from arrays via an NSArrayController, cool stuff.

    I opened up a new iPhone project in Xcode just for kicks, and noticed some stuff missing, namely the "Bindings" tab on the inspector. You mean you have to tie all your stuff together manually in the code??

    Are there any good tutorials or books or anything out there? Seems like developing on the iPhone is a whole different beast than developing for OS X.

    The best place to start is with the sample apps. They give examples of doing pretty much all the basic stuff you would want to do on the phone.

    They kinda fly over my head. I need a book, too bad the NDA is still in effect.

    But there is sqlite, which is what CoreData is based on and in reality is much more straightforward to use than CoreData, as long as you are familiar with SQL syntax.
