Making small apps and good practice programs?

I´ve been working with c++ for a little while now, but I need some help to improve!
I need some help with good things to code, like a calander or a game? Whats good practice? What could be a good thing to connect a few of the basic loops and functions?
And if I want to do an small and easy app for my mac with just some buttons and pictures, maybe more after a while but what I need help with today is:
- Idées for good learning programs (just code)
- How to and what to use to be able to code and build an easy app with c++?
(Maybe like an basic iPhone app but with c++?
