    Can you already program? If not then learn to program first. Then ensure your C knowledge is OK, learn Objective-C if you don't know it and familiarise yourself with Cocoa.

    At that point you are ready to write an app!

    This was actually one of my first OS X applications.

    Good luck. Multithreading is a bitch.

    NSURLRequest

    Some code form one of my apps:

    Code:
    NSURLRequest *request = [NSURLRequest requestWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://google.com"]];
    NSURLConnection *connection = [[NSURLConnection alloc] initWithRequest:request delegate:self];
    
    The next step is handling incoming data etc using delegates. There might be an easier way, but this is how I did it.
