Well here is it, my first iPhone app! I call it "Hello World" and while It is doesn't do much more than show Apollo 11 and our "World" from lunar orbit, it is my first iPhone app from scratch and it's all mine. The Earth and the Apollo Command Module are animated using the core graphic classes. The result is actually quite hypnotic to watch, with the Earth and Lunar Lander slowly floating by at different rates and vectors.
I must thank Jonathan Lehr at About Objects, Inc. for the great 11 day intensive iPhone development course they hold once every couple of months.
As a technologist, designer and networking geek, I had some C skills coming into the class, but the iPhone Super Bundle, as it is called, really kicked things into high gear. Jonathan covered C, Objective C, the iPhone SDK and all the tricks of using the Xcode IDE and Interface Builder.
