    Here is what I know:
    Basic C++, Java, C#, PHP, and SQL

    Here is what I want to do:
    I am wanting to build an iPhone App to access and display data from a MySQL database using a tabbed interface similar to the iTunes Music Store.

    I am overwhelmed and do not know where to start. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    From what i have found so far is that Apple does not seem to support direct mySQL connections to web servers. You will need to find alternate methods.

    One example of how to do this is create PHP pages that export XML data as your mysql data export , and use GET POST methods to post data to PHP pages to write to your database..

    I'd start by visiting the Guides and Stickies at the top of this very forum.
