    Is it possible to create an app for the Iphone with no programming knowledge?

    Is there an easy step guide/template to follow?

    I am not a programmer but I want to create an app.

    Expect a steep learning curve. You will need to learn programming; specifically, Objective-C. There are books for this, and I would recommend them as you have no prior programming knowledge (the Macrumors forums search bar is your friend). Objective-C, once you learn it can be very easy relative to other programming languages. There's no drag-and-drop way to make an app though, sorry.

    Simple answers, no and no (as far as I know they haven't come up any software that would be a template). You need to know Objective-C and you have to get the SDK. There is some software for using html that I heard about, but you'd still have to know how to "program" in html.

    Thanks for putting that program word in quotes. HTML is not a programming language; it is a markup language (hence the ML).

    that - of course - isn't possible. while an interface can be built via drag&drop, how should that work for the program logic? because the logic of an app is unique, so it can't be dragged&dropped or anything.

    if you have an idea that's worth it: sit down and learn objective-c!
