I read you mention Phonegap as an easy way to develop on the iPhone. Do you have a good Phonegap tutorial? Will it let me program native apps?
Phonegap is an iPhone development framework that allows you to write your program using javascript. It was created for web developers and designers that don't want to learn how to code in Objective-C/C or C++, but would rather use the skills they already have. Any tutorials for Phonegap are essentially just Javascript tutorials, you can try searching our site for Phonegap to find out more about it and related resources.

As far as whether the development is just like native development... well it's not. In many cases there is a significant drop in performance. This is alright if you're not programming a performance intensive app (such as a tip calculator, turn-based 2d game or soundboard for example), but all action games that I've seen coded using these frameworks seem to run with excess lag.
