# From the Horse's Mouth - Official Apple Resources
If you want to answer to specific development issues, the first
place you must check out is Apple's own documentation. There is
tons of material in the iOS
Dev Center. In my opinion, the following are some of the most
Create Apps for iOS 7

with blocks, deal with errors and give you a rundown of Objective C

Apple guide will show you how to write source code in the source

# Popular Programmer Blogs
Blogs are one of the best places for getting ideas and answers,
when it comes to programming. But, it is not easy to separate the
wheat from the chaff. Here are three reputed blogs that will help
you learn more about iOS app programming.
You will have to get real familiar with Objective C if you are
planning to develop iPhone apps for the next few years. Matt Gemmel talks about
Objective C and how it should be used to develop apps. It is
essential reading for serious Apple developers.
This one is, arguably, the most popular blog with hundreds of
iOS development tutorials. It is usually the little things that
stump developer. More likely than not, on this blog, you will find
a blog on the topic that has you befuddled. But Ray Wenderlich
doesn't ignore the bigger picture. There are detailed
tutorials for every aspect of iPhone app development.
Author of the Beginning iOS development series of books, Jeff
LaMarche also shares his knowledge on this blog. Here,
you will find tons of insightful information and ideas on how to
develop app and about the different techniques that can help you
increase the efficiency of your operations.
# Online Developer Forums
One of the easiest ways of getting answers from experts is by
asking the question on developer forums. Many expert programmers
frequent developer forums and try to help out each other.
Apple Developer Forums
The developer forums at
Apple Support Communities are pretty useful when you want
answers to pinpointed development queries. You get answers from
fellow developers and Apple engineers. The best part is that only
registered developers are allowed on the website - so you won't be
spammed with useless answers.
There is a wealth of information about
iPhone app development on
StackOverflow. There is a good chance that you will find an
answer to your problem just browsing this forum. But, in case you
don't, you can always ask a question and the answers will come
within a few hours.
While MacRumours is a popular website for Apple news, it also
has a large and active community of iOS developers. Its forum
section has answers to many interesting questions, and there is
a chance that your question is already answered.
# Social Media Sites
One of the best ways of getting answers to complex and specific
developer problems is talking to other developers.
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn
This is not the kind of resource that you can link to. As a
developer, you can connect with other developers through social
media websites, and ask them answers to your specific questions.
For someone who has faced and solved the same problem that you are
facing, giving the answer will take no more than a few minutes.
Networking and building relationship with other developers is one
of the most useful methods of finding answers. You can also join
iOS programmer groups and forums to stay updated.
There are hundreds of online resources for iOS developers. The
above ten have proved to be most useful to the team of developers
that I work with. What's you take on this? What are your favorite
