iPad Development Underway


Apple has posted a page to allow developers to start working on developing iPad apps.  The developers can start working with the iPhone SKD 3.2 beta.  It contains all the tools needed to start developing and optimizing applications.

The program even comes with …. an “iPad Simulator.”  The simulator lets developers build and run an iPad application on the Mac so the user interface can be tested, debugged and memory usage can be monitored.

If you are new to programming, you can review the programming guide and human interface guidelines.  Sample code is also available to get you going quicker.

So, is this the “funnest” device Apple has made?
