    I've been wanting to make a simple but addictive iphone 4 app but dont know ANY coding, ive been trying to use gamesalad, its just tough to create the whole app in photoshop from scratch does anyone use any other development tools or websites that simplify the development process?

    Making an addictive iPhone app without any knowledge of coding? Sounds almost impossible but kudos to you if you can somehow pull it off...

    I suggest you instead learn about basic programming, and use Apple's tutorial to step you through using Xcode. Better to spend your time learning it right instead of wasting it trying to take a shortcut...

    Its hard to learn tho right? People go to school for degrees in coding...not to say im not inclined to learn but the question is is it as hard as its said to be?

    of course its hard, i wanted to do the same thing as u but i gave up on xcode, its extremely difficult, i think it will take going to a course and learning coding for atleast 3 years before i could make a nice app.

    This is bunk, the difficulty will be very different for each person. XCode isn't that hard, but understanding some basic programming will help a lot. If you learn C; XCode is built upon that, and thus will help you greatly. You can learn basic C programming in a few weeks. I taught myself C programming some 25ish years ago and picked it up much of the basics in a few days. But I had already taught myself Pascal so it helped. But seriously, there are some great tutorials to follow, lots of examples, and training websites / podcasts or courses. Go to your local community college and take a basic programming class, that will teach you the basics that you can use to understand the other examples you find.
