As the popularity of cell phone apps has increased by leaps and bounds, so has a Stanford course that teaches students and the general public (via the Internet) how to create apps for Apple’s iPhone.

The popular iPhone Apps course has returned to a Stanford classroom for the winter quarter. Beginning today, the first class of the 10-week session is available as a free download on iTunes U, a dedicated area within the iTunes Store .
Users of the iTunes Store may subscribe to and download each week’s lecture videos and accompanying materials for the 10-week course, iPhone Application Development, which is taught by Apple engineers. However, grades, college credits and access to the classroom and the teaching staff are limited to Stanford students only.
* As of April 1, 2010, there are 2,000 iPad apps available
* As of April 1, 2010, there are 20,000 iPad apps in development
* iPad specific apps account for 22% of new application development
* Competing Andorid system app development has dropped to 10%
* Most iPad apps are created with SDK 3.2
With 2,000 iPad apps currently available, another 20,000 in development, and an estimated 150,000 apps expected by the end of 2010, iPad app development is on the rise. This video allows you to see the technical process of actually developing and iPhone or iPad app. You will see the process from the downloading of the iPad SDK 3.2, which is used to develop new apps, to the testing of the newly created app on the iPad simulator.

The iPhone Application Development course is a 10 week session that will focus on updated material for iPhone OS 3.1, according to Stanford University
The videos for the course will also offer more this year. "We’re getting the videos closed captioned this time, so they’ll be even more accessible,” said Julie Zelenski, a Stanford computer science lecturer who helps coordinate the class. "In addition to helping those with hearing disabilities, the captions will be helpful to English language learners or students trying to understand the more technical aspects of the classes.”
The course was downloaded more than 4.4 million times last year and Stanford expects the same response this time. Anyone can download the course material, but grades, college credits and access to the classroom and the teaching staff are limited to Stanford students only.
