iPhone Development blogs

After realizing that getting into iPhone development is a little more… eer… a lot more work than XNA development (lack of good tutorials, the fact that the SDK just went non-NDA, and no good gaming frameworks) I went around to search for some good blogs.

I find myself having to re-create a lot of the  classes that already exist in XNA, classes that I’ve grown to love ;)

Another site that has really helped, is GameDev’s OpenGL section located at 

And who can forget Apples documentation for ObjC.

If you’re doing any sort of iPhone development and find some really great sources of information, drop me an email!
