Create Your First iOS App! Lots of people have ideas for mobile apps, but few have the programming skills to make it. With this two hour workshop, you can learn how to make your first iOS app without writing a single line of code! Just as Microsoft has Office to write word documents, Apple has XCode to create iOS apps for iPad and iPhone. Using the built in features, you can learn to create apps that display titles, texts and images, with working buttons to take the user to new pages and new content.
- What Can You Do With This Course?- I was able to create a choose-your-own-adventure story app for an art show without writing any lines of code. The story was illustrated with my own artwork and was fully interactive. These methods can be used by artists to create new kinds of digital art, organizers who want to have information for an event, like a schedule, map and speaker information, organized in an app, and by designers who want to create demo versions of totally new app ideas. This can help them explain their concept to programmers and investors.
- What Do You Need- For this workshop, you will need a computer running OSX, with XCode installed. This can be an Apple computer or a PC running OSX. It is available in the Mac App Store for free, but is a large file, so please have it downloaded ahead of time.
- Will The Apps You Write Run On My Phone?- The apps we create will be able to run on your OSX computer in a simulator. If you have an Apple developer license, they will run on mobile devices as well.
