Re: iphone programming language

The programming language iPhone and iPod touch apps are written are in Objective-C. until there's an end-user sdk for the iphone, developers are "stuck" with web applications using javascript and html.

Programming with iPhone SDK, developers have the expert guidance they need to begin building native applications for Apple's new iPhone 3G as well as the iPod touch. Inside, veteran mobile developer and Bell Labs scientist Ali Maher begins with a foundational introduction to Objective C and Cocoa programming, and then guides readers through the building programs with Apple's iPhone SDK.

iPhone SDK Programming covers a wide range of topics, including:

The Objective-C programming language
  • Collections
  • Cocoa Touch
  • Building advanced mobile user interfaces
  • Core Animation and Quartz 2D
  • Model-View-Controller (MVC) designs
  • Table Views File management
  • Parsing XML documents using SAX and DOM
  • Working with Google Maps API
  • Consuming REST Web Services
  • Building advanced location-based applications
  • Developing applications using the database engine SQLite
  • Building Multimedia Applications
  • Making use of the camera and video Working with the accelerometer

Re: iphone programming language

Cocoa is Apple's name for the collection of frameworks, APIs, and accompanying runtimes that make up the development layer of Mac OS X. By developing with the Cocoa frameworks you will be writing applications the same way that Mac OS X itself is written, with complete access to the full power of the operating system, including the signature Mac look and feel. Cocoa is simply the best way to create native Mac applications.

The Cocoa frameworks are primarily written in Objective-C, and support both 32-bit and 64-bit applications as well as Objective-C 2.0's garbage collection, although there are a few components written in other languages such as C for performance or compatibility reasons, such as Core Foundation. The Cocoa frameworks are completely accessible to Objective-C programs, and can even be accessed using native syntax from AppleScript, Python, and Ruby. Example frameworks included within Cocoa are Foundation, which defines the "nuts and bolts" classes for Objective-C programming, and Application Kit which includes higher-level controls such as windows, buttons, menus, and text fields. Whatever you need to develop, Cocoa contains the frameworks to make development productive and enjoyable.
