    I'm 15 and a newbie at programming for the iPhone. I know that you need to pay $99 and register as a developer at apple to be able to put your apps on the app store and distribute them. But what if I just want to put an app I made on my iPod touch so I can show my friends the stuff I've made. Would I still have to pay $99?

    Yes, you must have the $99 Developer account. Unless you have a jailbroken iPod.

    It would come you cheaper if you buy some (soft) drinks and some food and invite your friends over for a simulator party.

    Alternatively search for a developer in the neighbor hood and bribe him/her with food and drink to put the app onto your iPod. ;)

    PS: not sure if the jail-breaking methods around still work. Many stopped working with iOS 4
