By the end of this course, you’ll know how to create native iPhone and iPad apps using Xcode and Swift and can proudly call yourself an intermediate iOS 9 programmer. You’ll know how to implement all of the above features using iOS frameworks, using source code which is provided. At each step you’ll review and analyse the behaviour to help compound your knowledge.
- Xcode: Xcode is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that contains all the software you need to create beautiful, fast, and easy to use applications for Apple devices like iPhones and iPads. You can experiment with new APIs, add additional source code, and even make use of the interface testing feature, which records your app in action.
- Swift: Swift is a multi-paradigm programming language created for Apple. Deemed by its creators to be a ‘modern programming language that is safe, fast, and interactive’, it is designed to work with the Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS applications. It was introduce by Apple in 2014 and is currently in its second version.
