Hi, I am Bill Weinman and welcome to iOS4 Building Data-Driven Applications. In this course, I will show you how to build a solid RSS reader for both the iPhone and iPad, integrating XML data into a clean and simple presentation. I will explain how to use the SQLite database, which is included in iOS, and display the information in a clear intuitive table view. I will teach you how to code the necessary view controllers for your application and how to use the Settings application to provide a preferences interface for your users.
Finally, I will show you how to make a universal app that runs on both the iPhone and the iPad, taking advantage of the unique features and form factors of both platforms. Creating an application for iOS doesn't need to be a frightening experience, so let me show you how in iOS4 Building Data-Driven Applications.
