How do I make a smartphone app?

Is making a smartphone app difficult? I have some programming knowledge from school and uni. Not sure where to start with apps though! Any advice appreciated :)

Seriously Google is your friend. There are PLENTY of beginner tutorials out there. Also consider investing in a book, but it isn't necessary. Be aware that all content can possibly become redundant fast with new OS updates but this is part of the fun and games in my opinion and helps fight off stagnation or boredom. Lastly, just dive in! There's no better way in my opinion.

Hahahahahaha... Made my day :D
For strange reasons - and out of its context - probably the best bit I read online in a while.
Merry Christmas

Might I add: there is a huge range of programming/coding apps in the iOS Appstore. Their focus is generally iOS app development. Many of those apps work in conjunction with that Apple iUniversity thing. So, it's up to you whether you wanna dig into Android (then see above) or iOS...

And beware: if money is your motivator, forget about it. It is a tiny tiny tiny fraction of apps that
actually make money. But for fun and Kudos? Why not? "Fun projects" became huge successes via sites like XDA developers forums and similar places.
