    Is there a wysiwyg app devloper out there? I'm reading through the books now but wondering if there is one out there to get the basics done then write the details as needed.

    You can layout the interface in Interface Builder but to do almost anything useful you need to code the actual logic.

    Yeah I finally found a post about it. I'm the kind that learns by seeing and doing. I picked up HTML pretty quick with ms frontpage split view. Design and see code helped me out.

    I'm similar in that I learn by seeing, copying, and doing, but Frontpage? Really? Ouch :p

    You can do web apps customized for iPhone Safari and HTML5, using various RAD tools, including maybe Dashcode, then later encapsulate those web apps inside a native iPhone app for distribution in the App store.

    Hi User3977,
    If you haven't much experience in programming with a language, and that could be VB, VBA, Javascript or Applescript even, producing an app that will get through Apple's review process may be an uphill struggle.

    You might want to review some sample code, and there is plenty out there, to get an idea of structure and links, but I would recommend you start reading a book on Objective C, because you will need it. I learnt a lot from reading 'Beginning iPhone Development', but even some of that was over my head without the Objective C knowledge.

    Ultimately you will need the hard stuff. I am currently developing a game, and that is a whole lot more complicated than the projects I have done to date.
