Course Description

Are you an iPhone developer, or are you aspiring to be one? Do you have or hope to have an app in the app store sometime soon? If so, then you already know that creating an app that works well with the iPad is crucial.

In 2016, there are projected to be 80 million iPad users in the United States alone. With Apple's recently announced iPad Pro, and constant effort to innovate and improve the iPad experience, there are many beautiful opportunities to be on the front line with the world of iPad programming.

In this class, we'll very quickly get you up to speed on what you need to know to make sure your apps work well with the iPad.

Some of what we'll cover:

  • How to make your apps work for both the iPhone and the iPad
  • Designing with the iPad in mind
  • How to optimize for Multi-Tasking functionality
  • UISplitViewControllers
  • UIPopoverControllers
  • All for iOS 9 and Swift apps

What makes me the right teacher?

  • I have more than 9 iOS apps in the App Store which total over 300,000+ downloads
  • I teach more than 23,000 other students in my conglomerate of highly rated iOS development Udemy courses
  • I like to use, *ahem*, an energetic and engaging course style
  • I have 4+ years iOS development experience
  • I'll never talk over your head.

Who is this class for?

  • Those who already have an app or hope to make an app that they want to be available to the millions of worldwide iPad users
  • Those who understand iPhone development. This class will not be of use to you if you don't learn how to make apps elsewhere (I'd recommend my iOS 9 class!)
  • Those who intend to learn iPhone development outside of this class. Use this class to make sure you're making your apps useful for the iPad as you learn iPhone development elsewhere (like my iOS 9 class!)
  • Those who want to make money with their apps as an entrepreneur
  • Career development professionals who want to earn money professionally via contract work, consulting, full-time employment, and so forth

What are the requirements?

  • Recommended to have a Mac, though other routes exist
  • Basic knowledge of Swift is recommended

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Harmonize across all iOS 9 iPhone and iPad devices and sizes
  • Extend your reach to the hundreds of millions of worldwide iPad users in 2016
  • Extend your iPhone apps to seamless integration with the iPad

Who is the target audience?

  • Those who have an app or hope to make an app for the iPhone
  • Those who already have a basic knowledge of iOS development, or hope to acquire that knowledge before beginning this class
  • Those who want everything they need to know about iPad in one compact place!

Instructor Biography

Nick Walter, Mobile Developer for Android and iOS

I'm Nick Walter, an iOS developer that has been focused on mobile app design and creation for over 3 years. My involvement in the iOS community started off with a bang, and in 2013 I was one of 25 students worldwide to be invited to Apple's "Cocoa Camp." Within my community, I am also co-president of an Apple developer group called "Cocoa Heads."

I've always had an itch to make things, but growing up in a small town I had limited access to programming resources. This frustration drove my early interest in online education. After experimenting with various companies, learning styles, and teaching processes, I've adopted the best strategies and used them in my courses. My experience as an online student has directly influenced my teaching style, and I am now proud to help students all over the world with their online learning goals.

Since the announcement of the new Swift programming language by Apple, I have buried myself in the Apple documentation and any online resource that is available. In my first Swift course, I provide students with a detailed explanation of the topics and skills needed to learn Swift, an overview of the basic features of the new language, and get you started to begin building your first products.

Prior to teaching the internet's first course on Swift, I have created 5 iOS apps from scratch that are currently live in the App Store and being used by thousands of users worldwide. Using my experience launching my own apps, I'll walk you through the shortcuts that can save you time and frustration from having to teach yourself.
