iPhone App Basics

If you're new to the iPhone world, you may need some iPhone Application basics.

The applications are the heart of customizing your iPhone experience. Each person who has an iPhone can download and use individual applications, or apps, directly from the Apple App Store.

iPhone app developers post new applications every day that accomplish tasks, entertain and inform. iPhone game developers are always hard at work for your enjoyment. There are new applications daily.

There is help from iPhone application developers and from Apple itself if you need to know how to get an account, download an application, or get updates.

For starters, you can browse through the app store from the computer through iTunes, or you can tap the button for App Store on your iPhone.

If you're on iTunes, it may be little difficult to find the App Store. Simply go to the iTunes Store button on the left hand side of the iTunes screen, then you'll find the App Store link on the left hand side of the iTunes store window.

If you already have an account with the iTunes store, then beginning to purchase or download free applications for your iPhone is easy. You simply use the same password.

If you don't yet have an account on iTunes, it's easy to create one, and you'll definitely want to download applications to your iPhone. These apps, created by iPhone developers all over the world, work on all iPhones, and most work on the iPod touch as well. This fact is not always separately indicated, however.

If you need more basic help, you can go to the Apple Knowledge Base where you'll find step by step instructions.

Some applications are silly and frivolous. One popular app is called "Steam." With this app, you blow into the microphone on your iPhone, and the screen clouds over with what looks like steam. You can then wipe it off with the appropriate squeaks and condensation.

Other games and interest applications put out by iPhone developers include the U.S. Presidential quotes. You swipe across the image of a president, and some of his finest quotes appear.

To create these and thousands of other fun, silly and useful apps, the iPhone application developers work hard to keep ahead of the curve. Now that there are over 50,000 applications for the iPhone, iPhone developers also need basics on how to get noticed in the market.

One thing to do is to be very narrow in the focus of your app. Cut out extraneous screen stuff, and focus on the core concept. You can us a mockup tool when you are experimenting with different applications and different ideas so that you can pitch them to a company or other developers.

You want to choose the approach you will take for building the program. As an iPhone developer, using apps that are built in the browser are easier to develop, easier to share, and easier to distribute. Why make things hard on yourself by learning objective C to write iPhone apps?
