I would like to develop an Iphone app for the for a football club which provides latest news on the club by pulling the news from a few websites. Also, the app will feature all the fixtures (domestic and international) in addition to other little features. There are similar apps in the appstore for some English and Spanish clubs and I basically would like to replicate the idea for this football club in my country.
Since I have no knowledge of programming, I have a few points I would like to enquire about to see if they are going to be problematic.
1 - How easy/difficult is it to make the app communicate with the websites which have the information that I would like to display on my app bearing in mind that I have nothing to do with these websites.
2 - Is it possible to make the app automatically update the displayed data at a regular interval?
As someone with no programming experience or (I'm assuming) any basic knowledge of programming, you will have a very difficult time accomplishing your goals for the app. For even a very simple app, a lot of thought and planning needs to be done to make sure that you provide an engaging user experience that reacts deterministically.
If you're serious about attempting an app like that, I'd suggest buying a howto book on iPhone programming; study it; do every example. At that point, you should have a decent level of comfort with iPhone programming and you might be in a position to work on your first app.
With no programming experience, you've put yourself in a difficult position. However, it's not impossible. Good luck.
