In Part One, we will be working with simple text and image applications that we will develop in a number of ways. We will create these applications in Visual Studio and then convert them to Xcode. Next we will add some code to a small application program that we developed using the VS IDE. Finally, we will convert our application to iOS by developing a simulator application. By the end of this series, you should have enough experience to create simple apps of your own.
If you have any problems with this course, you should contact the MTA teachers who taught it to you. You should be able to get support through the course website and via email. There is also a support group on the subway in NYC that provides great support for people just starting out. Once you have become familiar with the course you can continue with the next series at anytime.
In Part Two, we will be creating an iPhone application that will retrieve subway information. We will use the iPhone’s accelerometer to locate stops. This application will use the MSActioneer library and the iPhone’s motion sensor to detect when the subway train is entering or leaving a station. After this application has been created, we will import our user data, which includes the photos from the camera. We can then display these photos on the iPhone using the motion sensor.
In the third and final installment of this series, we will develop a web application. This application will be used to create and update a website. We will create an index page and a few pages that will be used as login pages. We will use the Xcode IDE to build the web application.
Since the topics for this course are based on an application, we will begin by learning how to use the iOS framework. We will create an app and learn how to add new elements to it. Next, we will create a main screen and a user interface for the app, which will display the information we entered in the forms.
We will add buttons, check boxes, text boxes, images, and background images. Finally, we will bind all of our elements to an UIV extension. This will allow us to have the application respond to the taps on the screen. We can also bind a URL to a view controller view, which will allow us to reuse code and quickly create new screens.
We can learn a lot more about developing applications using the iOS framework. There are even classes available at the Apple developer center to teach beginners the basics of programming. If you’re looking for a fun and entertaining way to get your computer skills up to speed, try using this application. You’ll be surprised at just how easy it is to get the program going.
