I would like to begin developing applications for Apple devices, but I'm not sure of the best way to go about it. I've done research but I get pointed in different directions. 

 

I don't own a mac, but can run a Mac OS on my Windows OS with VM Ware. I have installed xCode and I have a basic feel of it's functionality. My only programming knowledge is very basic Java. I plan on going to university to study game making, but cannot attend within the next 2 years due to my location, and other issues. 

 

I plan on learning Objective C on my virtual machine, and moving to a real Mac for real app development. My problem is that I don't know the best way to learn Objective C. I have rummaged through dozens of YouTube tutorials that teach the same basics over in each video and then the videos stop. Not having a specific point to begin my learning and a path to work on is very disorientation and discouraging. 

 

So, if anyone with experience or knowledge has any tips for me that could help me truly begin my path to iOS development, I would be greatly appreciative. 

 

Thanks, Mitch.

Have you thought of unity? You can punish for all major platforms and can use Java script or c#

Just grab yourself a book to learn the basics.  Any of the beggining Objective C / iOS / iPhone/ iPad books should be all you need as long as it is an up to date copy  Appress usually has a few iOS beginner books.

Apple's developer website contains great resources on Objective-C on iOS.
