    If you already have a Mac, you can download Xcode for free from Apple, use it to learn Objective C and write apps that you can partially test on a simulator that runs on your Mac. However, in order to run your app on an iPad or iPhone and test it fully, it has to go through the Apple Store, and you have to pay Apple a developer's fee.

    Yes, Apple requires you upload the app package via a unique mac computer. I had to buy an old ibook just to upload the PF apps.
