Hey, I'm brand new to the whole app designing process. That means I have never programmed before in my life, but I was hoping Gamesalad could allow me to start building simple apps.

Several question that I have - again, sorry if they sound dumb.

1. How many of you guys create your own images? Is there a free image database somewhere? What programs do you use to design your images?

2. How long did it take you to become somewhat skilled with this program? I have a lot of time constraints, so I will only be able to work on my app projects in my free time.

3. How difficult is it for an app to be accepted by Apple in to the App Store?

4. Do you believe that building apps on Gamesalad is a nice introduction into the world of programming?
