Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing the finished app, part of Building and Distributing a Simple App with Xcode and Swift.
- Here's the final version of the app we're going to build in this course. As I mentioned earlier, it's a simple web browser. The instructions are on the screen. Type a URL or Search and Tap Go. Let's say I type in a URL, so I'll type in google.com, and then click Go. Google site is the loaded. Let's say I want to do a search, so I click on cute kittens here, and click Search. And then I can click the Back or Forward buttons to got back and forward, just like you'd expect. I could also do a search from the text-field at the top of the screen. For example, if I type in 'puppies' and hit Go, it automatically does a Google search for puppies.
So we're going to look at how to integrate with Google search, and how to build this entire application from scratch throughout this course. We'll lay out the user interface, write all the app logic, and write how to detect whether the user typed in a URL, or search terms. Now we're ready to start making the app.
