    The size of the image or which books in particular is not important. I think the point is you don't have to spend a fortune on training when you can get everything you need from your iDevice.:D Anyways, Head First has a good entry point book for absolute beginners and kiddies who like squiggly lines.:D

    Have you guys heard about GameSalad?
    I've downloaded the dev app but wasn't able to really expore much.

    http://gamesalad.com/

    It has libraries of graphics and it's movements, you'll just have to create the logic/rules.

    Hi guys,

    Just thought I'd share, our team posts some iOS development-related posts on our blog, if you'd care to check them out. For example, we have one recently on Automated iOS testing for our iPhone app, TrafficDito.

    We also have one on transitioning from web development to iOS.

    Hope someone finds 'em useful! Don't worry, they're not promotional blog posts, they were really written for devs and by devs. :)

    Would you guys be able to share how much it'll cost someone to hire a person/group to develop an iPhone app, using content from an existing data bank/website?

    A ballpark figure would do just fine. TIA!

    Will a simulated iOS app on a Mac be able to interface with an external Bluetooth device, say a GPS receiver?

    No. The simulation doesn't include simulating the hardware features. It will only simulate on how the code will run on the device.

    OK. So a developer can presumably install his apps on his device.

    As long as the developer is paying $99/year, yes. Otherwise he have to use the simulator.

    You can download and watch out the iOS Programming courses offered by Stanford University via iTunes U.

    Aside from Standord, there are a lot of podcasts that offer free iOS programming tutorials. It's just a matter of familiarity with Objective-C, Xcode and practice hours to get the hang of it. :)
