Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Building a Note-Taking App for iOS 7.
If you're a premium subscriber to Lynda.com then you have access to the exercise files for this course. Exercise files are organized by chapters. Additionally, there is a folder called assets that apply to each chapter. Some chapters don't have any exercise files associated with them. So for those who'll see a text file in there called, There Are No Exercise Files for This Chapter. That applies to chapters one and two. In chapter three, you're going to start seenig sub-folders. One folder called Play On Notes contains the finished project we create in that movie.
For the rest of the course, you're going to see a folder name, and then inside of that folder, you'll see a final folder and a start folder corresponding to the starting state and final state of the exercise files for each movie. So you'll see those throughout chapters four and five. Again, I've included the final files for your convenience in case you get stuck. For those of you who don't have access to the exercise files, don't worry. The main files we're going to not create in the course are the asset files.
And as you just saw, there are only a few different graphics. And if you don't have those, you don't even need to worry, you can still get through all the course just fine. So with the organization of our exercise files under control, let's start building an app.
These courses take you through building 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, and compare and contrast your results with the other courses to learn about the differences and similarities of the platforms.
