iPad Apps Development: Introduction
The iPad, which is a better version of the iPod Touch and iPhone, stands to mesmerize everyone when it comes to games, photos, e-books, web pages and video.
iPad developers say that Apple iPad development is very similar to iPhone’s, with a lot more workspace. iPad’s screen resolution is 544 and 448 greater than iPhone’s, at 1024 x 768 pixels. All the iPad models do not come with a camera (similar to the iPhone). Only the high end model, the 3G, will have GPS. So it is more advanced in some ways and not so in the other.
Anyone who wishes to start development for iPad must buy the standard membership for the iPhone developer program. iPad development kit for iPad software development and the simulator can be downloaded for use at $99 a year. Armed with these available tools, development of code for iPad applications became possible even before the iPads’ shipments to first customers.
Apple iPad app Developers who are keen to have their applications up and available when the iPad hits the market internationally on May 28 should also get these tools.
Similar to iPhone application development, Apple places many restrictions to ensure uniformity in iPad applications. The website for iPad software development kit has all the detailed guidelines. All this information allows potential developers to view guidelines for programming, user interface and a few sample applications, to give them a feel of the iPad software.
Keep in mind that Apple only approves those iPad applications that do not use private API calls, write data on its designated space, among certain other violations.
Those who have decided to be bold and entered the arena of iPad application development had to face some challenges. The dilemma was that first iPad app developers couldn’t test their applications on the actual iPad until the device was out on the market.
Thus many iPad applications have bugs that users are now facing.
