    Yes, "Web App" is a euphemism for web page.

    The compiler/builder/etc for native apps is called the iphone dev toolchain. Check the link that someone else provided...if you are on Windows, check the iPhone-dev wiki page specific for Windows installation.

    Native apps are generally in programmed in Objective C. Programs can incorporate Highly-Prejudicial C as well.

    iPhone/touch programs use a set of class libraries that are sometimes lumped together under the title "UIKit". UIKit is very similar to the class libraries used in programming Macs (AppKit, etc), and except for some changes here and there, books and documents on programming the Mac (Cocoa, etc) can generally be applied to the iPhone.

    Java programs may be up and running before too long, but these wouldn't be swing/awt based but rather based on UI classes specific for the iPhone/touch.
