    Hi, I am very eager to lear iOs programming. I have only ever written in DarkBasic, and a few programs on my Ti-83. I really want to step it up. I have read a few books and webpages, but i get lost in the syntax. I need help.

    Look at the sticky thread at the top of this forum. It has lots of resources for getting started.

    Join Apple's ADC program, they have videos. Read "Beginning iPhone 4 development"

    I am also interested in some video tutorials which can help me in understanding the concepts and start programming.

    Any links for videos download would be appreciated

    Beginning iPhone 4 Development is an excellent book (I have Beginning iPhone 3 Development myself) however, this is not the place to start. The OP said he/she gets lost in the syntax. This book assumes prior knowledge of Objetive-C and might be frustrating to somebody who gets "lost in the syntax."

    I suggest Programming In Objective-C 2.0 by Stephen Kochan. This book will teach you Objective-C syntax and OOP in general.

    After the Kochan book, then start on Beginning iPhone 3/4 Development. You'll get a lot more out of it.
