I am a complete beginner in iOS app development, and I would like to develop an app where I could enter some item, and attach a date for when I want to be reminded of this item.
Could you give me some advice on where to start to look at ? Like what kind of tutorials ?
Thank you a lot.

As a start, you'll probably want to focus on learning something like NSDictionary, plists, or Core Data for long term data storage, and how to set local NSNotifications so they'll fire even if your app isn't running.

I'm sure there has to be To-Do List tutorials available that will cover these features. Ray's site mentioned above has great tutorials and information.

That's where I'd start anyway.
