Will totally depend if its an app or a game:
-I cannot help with apps
-with games either you build your own engine (pro only)
-or choose a good engine(UDK,Unity....) learn the needed language, personally I'd choose Unity cause its uses Java and C# which are easy to learn...
Oh and I'm feeling happy so here ya go:
design3.com its an awesome site but you ahve to pay (this week make a free account and enjoy cause they put everything free, after that you can pay a visit to torrentz)
Oh and if you speak french: siteduzero.com
And when you have acquired a good knowledge in C++ you can use the podcast of stanford university on Itunes U
Cheers

Download some tutorials on how to learn Objective C
Learn to do press-releases
Develop a following on twitter
Decide what framework you want to use to develop your game
Teach yourself photoshop or pay someone that does
Have around 100 to get yourself started with developer costs and websites

I certainly wouldn't go at it alone, do you know anyone that can do any of the above skills?
