    Hi, I want to start building iPhone apps and I know I need to learn Objective-C but is that the only language you need to know? Say I wanted to make a Twitter app using the Twitter API, would that also all be done with only Objective-C? What if I wanted to make an app using Foursquare data by incorporating their API into the app, would that also be in Objective-C? What about to include Game Center support in your app? Thanks.

    C (several iOS APIs are in plain ANSI C), and Javascript (for iOS UIWebview's and web clippings). The example documentation for a lot of web API's is either in Javascript or uses a Javascript library.

    Also, for technologies, OpenGL ES (a C API) if you want to do 3D games.
