I suck at C programming
Is there a programming language (preferably one that is valued in the job market to some degree), that people with poor math skills can grasp?
I took a college C programming class and ironically, I got a C... Didn't master the material........
Otherwise, I am pretty good with computer software.
Is there an easy to learn Ipad or Iphone compiler?
anything that one of u programers thinks a dumbass could learn
You are skilled individuals and I thank you for your time.

I've always enjoyed Python (Python Programming Language – Official Website) as it's a fairly easy to learn and useful language for beginners. It's a widely used program that will teach you a lot of the core material.
But more importantly here, you mentioned compilers for the apple based devices. Is that the only thing you want the programming aimed towards?
Now let it be known here that I am not a programmer. I dabble in it once in a blue moon, so others may have a better answers if you are looking for something specific.
Regardless, as noted above if this is just for generic learning, Python was always good for me.

Python and Perl are easy to get into and challenging to master if you do heavy coding. I agree with solo in that Python is a great place to start if - like me - you find programming difficult but fun. perls server side scripting is not easy imo but I'm too infrequently involved in coding to give it more than a glance. I do think Larry Walls documentation is typically flawless and through community is amazing (CPAN and sites like PerlMonks).
I don't code often either so a better answer may be found elsewhere. Just know about this from experience. Plus I'm also not big into Math and find coding that relies on teaching solely through Math-based example to be difficult to follow. That's why those two are at the top of my list.
I hear VB and Visual C++ are fun but have yet to explore them fully.
Shell scripting, HTML, PHP, XML, XHTML etc are all not remotely math related but not too terribly in demand (truth, for webpage coding, most pros use WYSIWYGs combined with coding not solely coding... the exception being server-side work). Shell scripting isn't coding per say. Akin to writing bat files (something any PC tech worth a damn can do), very useful for every day problem solving.
Heavy graphics work does involve math and coding. I don't do that stuff, just GIMP and PhotoShop eork (occasionally I dabble in Lightwave and Maya at friends' houses). Most people don't realize that it does have math involved so I thought I'd add it as a useless fact.
