    Default What Programing Language?

    Hey everyone,

    I wanted to start developing software for the iPhone, but I'm unsure of what language I should learn to do so. I have the iPhone SDK and it says here "Cocoa Touch." Is this just cocoa?

    Also after doing some googling I learned about Objective-C... So is Cocoa one programing language you can use? And then Objective-C anther one?

    So pretty much what I'm asking here is what programing language should I learn to be able to develop for the iPhone/ipod touch. Also any good books you can recommend?

    It is all clearly described on the Apple iPhone Developer Center.

    Cocoa Touch is a Framework based on Cocoa used in MAC OS 10.x. Objective-C is a language based on C which is the no.1 choice for developing Cocoa Touch Applications.

    I strongly recommend every person interested in iPhone App development to see all the Starting/Quick Guide Videos in the developer center. They give a very good overview of the technology you will use.

    In short - Yes!

    No, Cocoa Touch IS NOT a programming language.

    As posted by thebo83, Cocoa Touch is a Framework you will use to develop iPhone native apps.

    Cocoa Touch is written in Objective-C.

    You should then learn Objective-C and use it to write programs that will use the APIs provided by Cocoa.
