Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Demoing the finished app, part of Building a Note-Taking App for iOS 8.
- Here is the final version of the app we're going to build in this course. I can click the plus button to create a new note, and I'm instantly taken into the note editing view. The cursor is highlighted, and the keyboard's up, and I can type a note right in here. We'll hit the Back button, and then I'm taken back to the main view. I can create additional notes, as well as edit notes. I can also hit the Edit button and delete notes. All of this data is saved to persistent storage on the device, so it exists even when we close out the application.
Through this course, we'll build this app step-by-step, from scratch.
Each of these courses helps you build a complete mobile app from scratch; this installment uses the iOS SDK and Xcode to get the job done. Author Todd Perkins shows you how to create an Xcode project, lay out apps visually, connect UI elements to code, and save data to persistent storage. Start here with iOS 8, and compare your results with the Android and Windows Phone courses to learn about the differences and similarities of these mobile platforms.
