Development for iPhones and iPads gets the 'Lists of X Things You Need to Know' treatment, proving app development has gone mainstream.
Let's start with the latest list of 10 Things from TechRepublic earlier this week. First on the list? You need a Mac. Second? You really should have iPads and iPhones for testing. Seems simple so far, but then the advice gets more technical, declaring "Objective-C is a bit of a throwback." Luckily, there are alternatives to avoid Objective-C and XCode, and you can write code without a developer account, although when you get serious, get that account, which takes up to two week to be approved.
More for marketers, the Smart Passive Income site lists 5 Things, including the suggestion to hire a developer and patience during development. And free apps with ads can make more than apps for sale, in their experience. Back to developers, ReadWriteWeb put together "13 Tools" over two years ago, and many still have value to iPhone and iPad developers.
