This is a handy thread to read, answers a lot of the first time compile questions... http://www.glbasic.com/forum/index.php?topic=3604.0

There's also a section in the documentation now that tells you how to compile for iPod.

The most annoying thing is that I've got 3 potential programs for the iPod ready to compile and test (2 test/utility programs and a game), and I cant try them... :rant:

Just came across this today, haven't used it myself
but you can upload your app and make it private
and invite only people you want to test (i.e. yourself)

Actually probably won't work if you don't have an apple dev account

Isn't the SDK download for free?

Yes, registering and downloading the SDK is free, but somewhere between getting my dev number and registering for an App Store account, it asked me for $99. At that point, I grumpily turned off the browser, to yet again, try and find more funds to get the iPod development up and running.  :rant:

I would be heartily pleased if anyone has done this without the $99 sting?
Cheers,

Ian.

Yes, the £60 development fee is a pain...  But ol' Stevey-boy needs to be kept in caviare somehow...

Would be awfully handy if the resulting program could be run on the simulator though...
