    I had a look into doing this a while back and saw lots of advice recommending that you employ designers and all sorts of other people. Also, there was the approx. costs to get it up and running and into the app store. This ran into a grands, I think.

    Needless to say I picked up my iphone, downloaded a free app, played it, and forgot about making my own one.

    the cost is nothing once you have a mac.... developer account costs $99 and the SDK is free. The cost of getting the app on to the store costs nothing either. The real cost is the time and brain ache from trying to deal with apple :)
