    In that case, I would repeat my recommendation of "Realbasic". The web site for this company is www.realsoftware.com . It's a very nice software development environment. If you've never coded an object-oriented, windowed environment before, there is a learning curve with a few bumps in it but they provide extensive tutorial projects which seem pretty decent to me (I say that as someone who *has* been programming for a long time, but I'm no coding guru).
    Realbasic produces genuine cross-platform code. To see an example of a cross-platform project that some on this list will enjoy on its own merits, visit www.analemma.com and download a copy of SunGraph. This is a simple Realbasic app with versions available for either MacOS9.x, MacOSX,  and also Windows98/XP/etc. Works nice, and it's relevant to navigational matters, too. I learned something new by looking at the sunrise/sunset curves for Iceland using this product.
    42.0N 87.7W, or 41.4N 72.1W.
