Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

i just want to know what are the good websites to read technical articles on the iPhone, iPad or in generally iOS. Any subscription based services can also be named.

i am talking about sites like http://drdobbs.com, which have articles on mobility but indeed very generic.

so can you name some good sites with technical articles on IPhone, iPad or general iOS programming.

There are numerous blogs written by great Cocoa developers: rather than link to all of them I'd point you at cocoablogs.com which refers to many of the important blogs. Also look for podcasts: iDeveloper Live and Core Intuition are two I listen to regularly.

In addition, there are paid-for resources like the video training at ideveloper.tv or Cocoa Mag: as a disclaimer I should point out that I've contributed to both of these.

Apple Developer Documentation should be your main resource: iOS Dev Center

Check also iDev Recipes

Cocoa is my girl friend

And of course Google.com isn't only your search engine, it is your spell checker.

One thing I have found to be an excellent technical resource is the iPad application Zite. It's a magazine/content aggregator that just collects interesting articles from around the web but for whatever reason it has done an excellent job at distilling really useful yet obscure articles for most topics - in particular it does a great job with the categories cocoa, objective-c, and programming. It has led me to find a lot of great technical content on websites I would not have found otherwise.

that looks good but being a developer you spent a lot time on MAC, so an iPad app cannot be that useful to me. but if you can find the sources of that articles and share it here it will be great resources. –  object2.0 Jul 31 '11 at 13:54
There are too many. There are new ones every day. They are from many different sources, not just one... if you really want to be an iOS developer the investment in an iPad is worth it for all sorts of reasons, and this is one of them. You simply have nothing like this on the desktop as no-one is building the same kind of aggregators there. I am trying to teach you how to fish rather than give you a fish here. –  Kendall Helmstetter Gelner Jul 31 '11 at 18:24
