"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. You cannot DEVELOP applications for the iPad or iPhone using the iPad alone

2. You will need the Apple Development Tools which will require an Apple PC.
You could get a mac mini, laptop or 2nd hand Mac as the Development tools do not need a very powerful computer.

I'm afraid not. There was a point when I was so personally desperate that I was looking for a development environment on my iPhone. You will need to get a Mac. Xcode is a rather nice environment to develop in
