I have recently started to poke around in app development for the iphone. I just wanted to suggest a book that I have been reading/referring to.
Beginning iPhone Development: Exploring the iPhone
Amazon.com: Beginning iPhone Development: Exploring the iPhone SDK: Dave Mark, Jeff LaMarche: Books
This book along with Apples excellent tutorials have really made life easier. If you are looking to develop apps or just want to understand the apps, this is a great start.
Anybody else have some suggestions about where to start?

Erika Sadun's book is good.
Objective C is based on C and Smalltalk. It improves on C with better memory management, more dynamic features than C, and a less annoying type system. I prefer it to C++, although C++ can be better for raw speed (assuming you can fit everything in cache).

The first book listed is very good!
The first book listed is excellent. I started with it too.
I really learned a lot from AppsAmuck and icodeblog
You have to Google them because I am new and can't post links yet.
They have lots of examples of source code so you can get in there and see
how things are done

As for books, I find the one from BigNerdRanch (again no affiliation) to be very good (and is available as a Kindle ebook which I read on my iPad while next to my Mac doing the exercises.)
