    I’m just starting to teach myself about making a php based website with login (I am using jpmaster77′s login, I imagine you’ve seen it). I want to create message boards, member groups, (social networking style) within the site and I would eventually like to learn how to create an app for iPhone or Droid. I have a long way to go before I can even comprehend your source code (I don’t even own a smartphone), and my site is wholly incomplete, but I would love to see it just to get an idea of what I’m getting myself into.

    I have 2 question below:

    1- Can you guideline what we need to know to make iPhone App?

    2- So we need to pay 99$ to for upload to apple store?

    Hi Andy,

    1. You will need to learn Objective-C as this is the language that apps are programmed in. You will also need to get a copy of Xcode from the Apple Developers Network (once you’ve registered in step two). This is an IDE which you use to build the views, and code it all together. This leads me to my final point, which is you’ll need a mac. You have to have a mac to create iOS applications in Xcode.

    2. Yep, in order to actually submit apps to the app store, you must be a registered developer which costs $99 per year.

      Actually you could do it without a mac, which wouldn’t be recommended but stuff like hackintosh allow PC’s to simulate the Mac environment. Obviously there would be some drawbacks, but if you test on the phone device I don’t see many issues.

    I’ve always thought it would be a great app that could tell you what you could make for dinner based on what you have in your pantry. For instance, tell it that you have these 9 ingredients and the app tells you what you can make from them. In an advanced feature of the app, you could ask what additionally could be made if you went to the store and added x items? It would require a cookbook database and a little logic. (You’d also want to add items by scanning barcodes.) I’d make it if I had the time (or a sponsor). Want to collaborate?
