getting started on mobile and tab development

Hi, I have some idea for an app ... not sure how to start with Apple and Android app development. Any suggestions and tutorial?

I've developed extensively with .NET and Javascript before (more than 10 years experience). Actually am just testing the market since everyone is jumping in the app dev bandwagon. Hope to understand the process of putting something out there.

Thanks.

If you want the same app to run on both you are going to have to use something like phonegap or Xamarin. These are not native but javascript apps that run in a browser. I have never tried either of them, but they are the only way you are going to develop for both at the same time. An app developed for android using java will not work on iOS, and an iOS app in objective C will not run on android.
