I have. Unfortunately, I only made a few apps, though it was above my level of skill. I just settled with java.

I have, I'm really over my head, but I'm getting how it works and how to program a bit.

Have you done anything in it?  ???

I'm reading the documentation in my spare time even though I don't have Leopard, as one of the successful iPhone developers said in a review of the software that new developers can easily make over $1,000 a month with it. I can't even figure out how to make variables equal values though.

The main thing keeping me from moving on is the tedium of learning what I already know all over again in much more complicated syntax. I'm gonna try Java very soon though.

iPhone uses Objective-C for development, which is an object-oriented C-like language. You can interchange Obj-C syntax for C/C++ syntax, so assigning a variable would look like:

Code: [Select]
int var1;
var1 = 5;

Mark Damon Hughes (The guy who made Hephaestus) has released a game for the iPhone: http://markdamonhughes.com/Perilar/

It's not a particularly good game in my opinion, but he's making money from it. I'm still trying to get the hang of developing on the iPhone, and while it's slow goings I'm gonna persist as it's by far the easiest platform for new developers to earn money on.

Don't you have to buy the iPhone SDK from the Apple website?

Or join some kind of Apple cult to get the dev kit? I know it's not something you can just jump into.

Normally, I would, but I don't know if my next computer will be an Apple product.

(not that it has anything to do with the iPhone SDK :P)

All you have to do is register as an Apple Developer. It's pretty much the same as any other registration process, you just give them you're name, email, social security number and whatnot. I can't run the SDK yet as I don't have Leopard, but I've downloaded it anyway so that when I do get Leopard I can start developing right away.

So, you believe you'll get Leopard and a newer computer soon to learn the iPhone SDK? Hope so, if you do; I'll take a stab at it again.

The biggest problem, and the reason why I haven't made any iPhone games, is that you need an intel mac to program for the iPhone. my iMac G5 with leopard isn't good nuff :(
