What is iPhone App Development?
Start Developing iOS Apps Today is the perfect starting point for creating apps that run on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. View this guide’s four short modules as a gentle introduction to building your first app—including the tools you need and the major concepts and best practices that will ease your path.
The first three modules end with a tutorial, where you’ll implement what you’ve learned. At the end of the last tutorial, you’ll have created a simple to-do list app.
After you build your first app and before you start your next endeavor, read the fourth module. It explores the technologies and frameworks you might want to adopt.
Even though it takes you through every step of building a simple app, to benefit most from this guide, it helps to be acquainted with computer programming in general and with object-oriented programming in particular.
To develop iOS apps, you need:
A Mac computer running OS X 10.9.4 or later
- Xcode (latest version)
- iOS SDK
- Xcode is Apple’s integrated development environment (IDE). Xcode includes a source editor, a graphical user interface editor, and many other features. The iOS SDK extends Xcode to include the tools, compilers, and frameworks you need specifically for iOS development.
Download the latest version of Xcode on your Mac for free from the App Store. The iOS SDK is included with Xcode.
