Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi, I'm Todd Perkins. Welcome to Developing for the Apple iCloud API with iOS. This course is designed to demonstrate the key features provided by Apple in the iCloud API. iCloud enables data syncing between multiple devices using the same app, as well as multiple devices using different apps created by the same developer. The topics we'll discuss include building a note-taking app, setting the app up for iCloud integration, and multiple ways to integrate iCloud functionality into your apps.

The topics we'll discuss include building a note-taking app, setting the app up for iCloud integration, and multiple ways to integrate iCloud functionality into your apps.

I'll also show how to manage conflicts that can arise when devices sync through iCloud, so that changes made on one device will appear on another device in a way that a user would expect. This course covers a topic that is exciting to me personally. So I hope you can share in that excitement as we go through Developing for the Apple iCloud API with iOS.
