if your not trying to make super graphically enhanced programs/games and know something about web development. try Phonegap, can use a single code base and export to multiple platforms (android, ios, crapberry, and even windows phone 7)

you cant use visual Basic for these platforms. At least you can not do it yet. If you want something cross platform you will probably need html5/javascript that seams to be used by the most cross platform platforms like titanium. If you want to program for the IOS platform specifically then you need to learn objective C
