Hi, I recently decided to learn how to program and distribute applications for iPad. After some research I have some questions. I found similar threads in this forum but none where exactly what I wanted.
1) Do I have to buy a Mac to develop my iPad program? After reviewing this link:
http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread323449.html and this Dragon Fire SDK I found that I can write my app in C++. But is it possible that some things that I need to do for my app cannot be done in C++ and I should be using Objective-C (or Cocoa Touch Programming)? Has anyone else similar experience?
2) Do you have any book recommendations? I did some searching but surely I cannot buy all of them and I would like to have a hard copy of a book to start instead of getting many e-Books.
My main expertise is (can you guess it?) Java. I am an experienced programmer in Java so I am confused whether I should buy a book about iPad for completely beginners or a more advanced book since I have very little experience in Mac, or C programming.
