While the iPad and iPhone share iOS as their operating system there are many aspects of development for the iPad that are considerably different and should be understood by developers looking to create the best possible iPad apps.

On this page I have decided to list tutorials specifically created for the iPad along with other resources such as user interface design tips, and graphical resources such as UI prototyping tools and vector kits.

iPhone Dev Open FriendFeed Room

HI everybody, I mentioned in a previous post my favorite iPhone developer blogs, and a few people mentioned some other blogs so what I did was in order to help everyone keep up with this stuff, and so that people could rate, comment, and post stuff that they find was set up a FriendFeed page that you can find here: ManiacDev.Com iPhone Dev FriendFeed.

I haven’t really been much of a FriendFeed user, but it iss a very interesting service. 

If you like you can have room updates sent you by desktop, IM, E-mail, or just add them in the RSS reader. 

I’ve set up the page as a "Open" room for now where anyone can post, and I’ll see how that goes.  May have to close it after awhile.  If you have an iPhone development site for which you’d like me to add the feed just send me a message on FriendFeed, and you can post to the room directly (at least for now.. I haven’t tried this before, if it starts getting spam filled I will have to shut that off).

Anyways, check it out, it’s at:
