Ads by Google

If you’ve been mulling over the idea of developing an iOS app, but didn’t quite know where to begin, Apple wants to help you. Apple has every reason to want more developers on its lines, and is now making a special effort to attract brand new app developers, perhaps some that never touched the subject before.

To help these budding developers, Apple has released a tutorial document called “Start Developing iOS Apps Today”, which gets you started with the very fundamentals of building your own iOS app, through the set-up procedure, required tools and languages, the development process and the search for further sources.

If you’ve ever started on a new subject, you probably know there’s nothing  more confusing than volumes and volumes of text. Well, you won’t find that here. Apple’s tutorial gives a concise summary of every stage of the process, and provides useful links to further readings on each subject. As it is, the document seems to be aimed at briefing new developers on everything they need to know, before they delve into the real process.

Since it’s aimed at anyone who’s interested, you don’t have to be in Apple’s developers program to use it. The document is open to anyone who wishes to read it, even if only to learn about the basic process of making an iOS app.

     Apple has really done a good job by providing this to the developers, developers has now got new opportunity to prove themselves by creating something innovative by making use of this guidance.

    I don’t understand it – wouldn’t they earn more if they give out the SDK (or in this case access to Developer Program) for free, so anyone could learn how to make apps on iOS and then charge for releasing them? I think it’s better to use sth like appcelerator which allows to make apps simultaneously on Android, iOS, Blackberry and others and you don’t have to worry about any of those stupid charges.

      My guess:  It is a filter.  It keeps 10 million people from going out and remaking the “fart button” app or whatever god awful broken thing they came up with and submitting them.  Apple has to review and approve each one and they don’t want to review apps unless you are serious enough about it to drop $100.

    Android SDK is free. :) Then again, there are a lot of iOS suckers out there who downloads crappy apps.

      The Android SDK is free but you have to register and pay a fee if you want to get your app in the Android Marketplace.

    Why would I want to pay for software to write apps just so Apple can charge me again for a piece of the app pie after it’s developed. That sounds like a double charge to me. If they want to charge me for a piece of the app pie then the program to develop them and the cost of being a developer should be free.

    You mean they want us to buy the developers whatever thing that’s $100. Greedy pigs.
