where do i start?
Standford Offers Its Popular iPhone And iPad App Development Course For Free On iTunes U.
have any of u had a look at this course. is this a good place to start? or do i need to learn something before this.
i have some basic C++ experience, but no formal programing ..
how do i go about making an app. (other than signing up for the developer pgm)

Just do it ...
The best thing is to think of a simple app and go for it. There's loads of sample code out there you can pick and start from, so you don't have to reinvent the wheel.
For books, most O'Reilley books are nice to start with, like "Learning iPhone Programming: From Xcode to App Store"
I looked at the courses myself a while ago - they are quite ok, but I prefer learning by reading books and programming :-)

Read my reply from a few minutes ago to "mecie" who asked essentially the same question.
BTW. The Stanford Course now being offered for Free is an amazing deal. But it does assume that you have a solid programming background. Wish it had been there a year ago... Don't pass it up!
hi thanks for the replies..
i downloaded the stanford course since its free now.
also downloaded a basic app in obj-c as everyone suggested.
will check out that book by Aaron Hillegass.
where does one run a obj-c program? in xcode? (not an app per say..but to follow the instructions in the book), i have a mac running 10.6.8. xcode is for 10.7

As a C/C++ programmer,i strongly advice to go trough any "difference" guide, even if you, as you say, only with basic underspending. Some Objective-C conventions can be a little confusing at first glance
[InitSomethingWith: a and: b]; - for example, when I saw this first time: “wtf! Is that two methods, or something”?
And of couse, a loot of example study... especially with good description.
