I am learning to write code for iPad applications. I was expecting my brain to explode fairly quickly but it is not going too bad so far. I have downloaded the iPhone SDK 3.2 and I figure that I will not need the latest iPhone SDK 4.0 until I have learned a bit more. I will have to pay out $99 to get my hands on the version 4 of the SDK because you have to be a member of the Apple developer connection.

I see that there are two memberships, one for the iPhone and one for the Mac. When I am ready I will go for the iPhone developer connection with Apple. The tutorial I followed today took me two goes to get it right because there was a step missed out in the tutorial and I only spotted it the second time when I looked at an accompanying image that was there to show what it was supposed to look like. There was a connection that was made in the picture but hadn’t been explained in the text. When I got it to work I did a little dance.

Learning objective C is what is necessary to get things happening with programming for the iPad, iPod Touch and the iPhone. I am looking forward to be creating applications and when I have that good idea so I can set myself an iPad coding project. Tomorrow I will be following another tutorial for creating iPad Applications and learning more about using Xcode and the iPhone SDK 3.2 . I must say though that I like the ease of use of the interface builder in Xcode.

What would you like to see as an application for the iPad. I already have one good idea for an application that I want to create for the iPad but maybe you have a need that could be an idea to be worked on, and you don’t fancy blasting your brains out trying to learn programming for the iPad. I think it will be a bit of a long road ahead though as there is a huge amount to take in to be able to write good applications for the Apple iDevices. Wish me luck!
