					iPHONE:


Unlike Google’s Android and BlackBerry, the iPhone takes a step backwards to use an old

programming language technology, namely Objective-C . During the late 1980s to mid 1990s,

there was much activity in object-oriented programming languages, with many versions of C++

from different vendors (with different language features and implementation), as well as a host

of object-oriented languages such as Objective-C, Eiffel, Object Pascal, etc. Objective-C is a

Smalltalk like extension to C with limited commercial usage (Apple’s Mac OS X and iPhone OS).

Despite this, Objective-C usage is broad, when one considers that the iPhone has the greatest

number of available applications (and still growing).


As with the other Smartphones, the iPhone/Apple maintain a detailed developer web page:

http://developer.apple.com/iphone/. You need to sign up as a free Registeredd iPhone

Developer at: http://developer.apple.com/iphone/sdk1/. From a development perspective,

registered users can download the iPhone SDK 3.1.2 which includes the Xcode IDE, the iPhone

Simulator, and an additional tool suite (http://developer.apple.com/iphone/login.action).

Clearly, in addition to learning about programming on a hand-help application, for the iPhone,

you will need to learn a new programming language (Objective-C) and associated I DE (XCode

see http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/).
