Hi, I'm new in app development for the IOS environment, coming from developing for Windows in VB.NET.

I'm trying to develop a kind of invoice app for Ipad/Iphone, but I don't know how to develop or create an invoice report in this environment. I'm used to create reports in crystal reports, how can I do the same in IOS 7? Is there a similar tool, or it is something completely different? How can I display an invoice report (or any kind of report) in ipad or iphone? (My app uses core data, xcode, objective-c)

I'm new in this, any help will be appreciated

On iOS you can create a PDF. It is simple and convenient. It can be read or printed anywhere.
If you wish, on github you can find open source projects about the reporting. For example, this reporting tool: https://github.com/htsoft/RSReport
Apple documentation:
PDF Document Creation, Viewing, and Transforming
Generating PDF Content
