iOS 6: iOS System Resources

with Bill Weinman

Video: Welcome

(MUSIC). Hi. I'm Bill Weinman. And welcome to iOS 6 System Resources. In this course I'll show you how to use iOS system resources in your iOS apps. I'll start by showing you how to support internationalization and localization. Providing translated text and other resources specific to the languages and locales your app is being used in. I'll show you how to use the Camera to take still photos and movies. And how to access the images and videos stored in the Camera Roll. I'll show you how to read from the Address Book, and how to use URL schemes to launch the Web Browser, send email, and use other device services. I'll even show you how to register your own custom URL schemes, so you may communicate between apps on the device.
