    Big question! It depends! Are your epic ideas for games or utilities or something else? Will they run on a web page or a desk-top computer or a mobile phone - or somewhere else? HTML is used to create web pages. PHP is a more advanced way of creating web pages. The others can be used in a variety of situations.
  2. well 1 idea is a game for ios 1 is a web page ( in the area like twitter and facebook, IDEA) and well id like to make that web of the facebook thingy ( not face book my thing got no name yet) and make it an app
  3. I know nothing about iOS. A quick search on Google - there's "Getting Started with iPhone and iOS Development". If you copy that and put it in your favourite search engine then it should point you to an article to get you started. Good luck!
  4. well then do you know what Java C++ C# java script do?

    this site for example is it Html? (looking at the link of site i see Html so thats why i said it)
    Twitter for example, is it Html php what? same with facebook

    A programming language like c++ does what you program it to do. It's a bit like saying what is the English language for - you can use it for literature or texting or the words of a song.
    In Internet Explorer if you click Page and then View Source you'll see how the page is written. Facebook uses php.
    If you want to program you'll have to start with something simpler, you can't run before you learn to walk...

    Can a game like BF4 be made with C++? Yes. Can you do it? That is a whole different question.

    That is like asking if you can write and direct an Oscar winning movie in Mandarin.
    It is FAR more than just the underlying language.
