    Hi, I am a high school student and have great ideas for apps that don't exist yet. They shouldn't include programing or any codes, just like a list of menus.. like a app that would help you pick what mac to buy, it narrows down everytime...

    Thanks so much!!

    You will need to write code even for your menu app. Get the free copy of Xcode from apple, go to YouTube and search sdk or Xcode, and dive in.

    If you are comfortable with HTML, what you describe could be written as a web app instead.

    For a beginner, it's maybe 100 times easier to make a web app. So try making a web site that does what you want first. Multiply by 100, and that's how hard making a native iPhone SDK app might be.

    There is a very large learning curve if you are new to programming in general...yet alone becoming familiar with the api.
