    Hello

    I am going to develop my first IOS app, it is just tools and guides for an online game. Nothing thats going to blow the app world apart.

    You guys know the IOS home screens? I want the main page to look like that, the users click on each section and it takes them to that part - what would that be called?

    Also do you know of a developer support forum?

    Sorry, posted in the wrong section, - I got a little confused can you please move this thread to the Iphone/Ipad programming section please.

    Moved as requested. If you mean the Springboard in iOS (where you launch applications from) you will have a long road ahead of you as there is no pre-built component for that.

    Actually, you have several things for that..
    UITableViews (fake them so you create this effect). Three20 Library has this build in, I don't recommand using it though.
    I created something like you said (info app about an game), but for iPad, but i went fully custom mode, so that's an extra edge towards the user. depends.

    I think we are talking about different things as the OP has not been clear what they want. I was talking about the paged screen with application icons on it that can be re-ordered, supports folders and so on (the Springboard). This is quite a complex item (which may exist in the Three20 library but I've never used that). I agree for a simple navigation based app UITableViews are the normal way to go (like the list of conversations in the messages app) (within a UINavigationController usually).

    Sorry Robbie if I haven't made myself clear.
    I know that he meant Springboard like.
    I'll give you 2 answers, since OP Wasn't that clear, so i'm just spelling it out.
    First of all, I think he just want the springboard "like" version, and not the moving sections, which is a "Grid view", which can be faked in an UITableView.
    If he wants reordering, this actually can be done in an UITableview, but is some extensive coding, and can be found via a 3rd party library.
    Or in the Three20, but this is a, sorry to say, ****** library, since it's coded to "work", and I mean the quotes by heart. but it iwll do what you want.
