    If u got a Mac, use XCode to develop. U would have to learn a lot of Objective C. If this is a game, use GameSalad which requires no code of any kind.

    Well I have a PC, and what if I wanted to develop an app that wasn't a game?

    I assume you meant Windows system. You may try PhoneGap.

    I'm checking that to see if he could emulate Mac OSX on his PC.

    Lydia.com has some good training. May be a little outdated. Not sure they have updated to the new OS's.

    Then you're lucky to emulate Mac OSX on your computer!

    Xcode is the SDK for Apple. It only runs on Mac OSX. You can look up videos on YouTube on how to emulate Mac OSX on your PC. (Or even dual boot it!)

    Also, I forgot to mention that you have to get a free or paid dev account from Apple at developer.apple.com.

    The paid one has all of the features in the developer center with publishing your app(s) in the app store. Also, you can get pre-releases of iOS versions like the future iOS 5.1.

    It's hard to find a torrent that has every file that i need, i've downloaded a few different torrents, snowy VM zips, and i downloaded both VMware and virtual box but only installed VMware, i just have to sit and figure it out at this point

    Basically you just need VMware Player. You need to find the Mac OSX iso. Run that in VMware player and Mac OSX probably will boot up correctly.

    Heres from an install file:
    Installing Snow Leopard in Vmware Workstation 7

    Prerequisites...


    Patience

    VMware Workstation 7
    Basic knowledge of OS X and the
    terminal
    Previous boot-132 experience
    Retail Snow Leopard 29.99 DVD
    (as an ISO)
    A pre-made Snow Leopard VMX (included)
    dariwn_snow.iso
    (included)
    Intel Based Processor


    ----- Step 1 -----

    preparing the image

    Open
    VMware, load the vmx that came with this pkg

    edit the vmware settings to
    match your needs

    set the darwin_snow.iso as the cdrom media.

    save your
    settings

    ----- Step 2 -----

    Installing

    Start up your OS X VM

    once at the
    darwin boot prompt eject the darwin_snow.iso and load your Snow Leopard
    ISO

    Install Snow Leopard as normal


    reboot**

    **note:
    FakeSMC causes
    kernel panics on reboot in Snow Leopard for some reason. Just ignore the
    Kernel panics.


    ---- Post Install ----

    TAKE A SNAPSHOT before updating or
    making any other chages to the VM.

    Use Apple Software Update

    Reboot

    Take a
    Snapshot

    Install Vmware Tools

    Reboot


    ---- Caveats ----

    It seems that for some
    reason it takes about 10 reboots before Snow Leopard will boot normally
    into the VM. you will get stuck at the apple logo for about 3-4 reboots,
    then you will get to the dekstop but only get the beachball of death.
    Keep rebooting and eventually you will get to the registration form, once
    the registration form loads you will be smooth sailing from now on.

    You
    will always need to use the darwin_snow.iso to boot your vm but this is a
    small price to pay for having Snow Leopard in a vm right?

    Thanks
    to PolishOX for forcing me to do this the right way
