If you have a great idea for an app ensure that it stands out, it's efficiently functional and if it's going to be paid by users if you're going to charge. Also, you should guarantee that there aren't other apps that feature the similar thing you're offering. If you want to make something better than a particular existing application, ensure that your idea is much better.

If you don't have a Mac you can purchase one since the iPhone development tools are only available for Mac users. You can purchase a Mac mini fairly cheap if you have a limited budget. You're required to be an official Apple developer so you can work with the Mac tools. It's free registration where you will only provide them your information and be in agreement with their terms. Once you're registered, you can use the same username and password for your iTunes account and you can now develop iPhone apps for any Mac products.

Once you're officially an Apple developer, you can download the software development kit for the iPhone. The version you require relies on the OS you're presently controlling. The download comes with all types of documents, sample codes and all kinds of stuff you will be happy to have later.

Also, you should download Xcode. It's an inclusive, full-featured IDE created around an efficient workflow that incorporates the source code editing, as well as the create and compile steps into a graphical debugging experience.

Once you've drawn your app in Photoshop you can begin designing it with the templates in SDK. There are actually numerous templates to choose from.

If you don't know how to program or know about Objective-C, you can either look for a programmer friend or employ one. Or you can always purchase or rent a book for reference. If you understand the Objective-C basics you're prepared to program your application. Take screen shots as you continue along so you won't forget what you tried.

The SDK includes a charming iPhone Simulator where you're required to load your app and accomplish your own testing. Work out as many errors as possible and ponder about the ways somebody might use your application.

Loading an app into iTunes charges a one time member fee which is $99. Once you've paid the fee you can have others test your application and assist you in working out final bugs and errors. And after testing the app to the community and working out all the bugs, you can now submit your app to iTunes for approval.
