Yeah, you just have to be good at making apps if you're already decent enough at sending and pulling information from one source to another.

I was hoping for a more guiding answer. I suspect I will need to use Php/mysql  just wondering if anyone knew how to grab data from another site.

For the website, yes. And if it's for a RSPS, you can use Java sockets to connect your website to the server to pull the data requested - you wouldn't necessarily need to use MySQL for that. However, sending the data from the website to the app would probably take some research on both of our ends :)

Yeah well its definitely just for oldschool runescape. I keep looking for hopefully an easy way or api for me to just directly access their highscores database.

Well, fortunately for you, smartphones (including the iPhone) directly support C# which has very similar functionality to Java. It has a fancy class in the language called WebRequest that can pull data from whichever website you request. Now, it may take a bit of trial and error to get it exactly how you'd like it to be - but that goes for any kind of programming!
