    Learn to read. See the stickies at the top of the forum. All of this information is readily available for anybody who can be bothered to spend 5 minutes with Google.

    The ordinary way to do it is:

    1) you need a mac
    2) you use xcode, apple's free IDE. You program in the language Objective C.
    3) if you want to use your phone for testing, you have to join apple's iphone developer program and pay $99 per year for a developer's certificate (an encryption key) that is used to sign your apps so they can install on your own device for testing. This also allows you to upload apps to the app store for sale. For $199 a year you can join the enterprise developer program which lets you distribute your apps within your business enterprise without using the app store.

    There are supposedly some other ways to do it (adobe has some flash converter doohicky) but that's not how most people do it.

    *facepalm*

    No, you need to buy a Mac (not MAC). OSX, the operating system which runs on a Mac will not run on a normal PC (easily or legally, at least). On the other hand, you can run Windows on a Mac if you need to.

    You need a Mac running OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to use the iPhone development tools.

    Is this a wind-up?

    Technically, yes, though I have my doubts...;)

    It's like saying...if I learn how to use my fingers, can I play the piano.

    What do you mean by database support?

    What is your primary spoken language?

    Can we all agree to just ignore these threads? Honestly, if they don't know how to search google, or get confused easily on something like this, then they shouldn't learn it.

    I suspect (hope?) it's just a language problem.

    Well, your first step is find a macintosh computer. Any one will do.

    After that, go to http://developer.apple.com/iphone, and sign up and download and install the iPhone SDK.

    Actually, it will need to be an Intel-based Mac.

    You need to purchase an Apple computer. All currently sold Apple computers use Intel processors. You need one with an Intel processor.

    Older Apple computers used PowerPC processors instead of Intel processors. Those won't work.

    Older Apple computers used Motorola 68k processors instead of PowerPC processors. Those won't work either.

    You can buy a used Apple computer (a Macintosh) as long as it has an Intel processor. You can purchase a Mac Mini, a Mac Pro, a Macbook, or a Macbook Pro, as long as it has an Intel processor.

    No, you'll still need to purchase an Apple computer. You'll also need to be sure it is Intel-based (all Macs from the last few years are). Prior to those, Macs were Power-PC-based. There are still plenty of used ones like that floating around for sale. iPhone SDK is not supported on Power-PC Macs.

    In theory you can use other languages, but the easiest is Objective-C. Objective C will be available as an optional install (xcode) when you buy the mac, but you should go here:

    http://developer.apple.com/iphone

    and download the iphone sdk. This will include xcode and all the necessary tools to let you develop and test your code on the iPhone simulator that comes with xcode.
