Final Project Schedule

November 29 – Complete re-design, responsive navigation & jQuery plugin

Note: Be sure to build your prototype in stages and to keep earlier versions. (See the helpful examples page for the important versions). Then when you have an issue you can go back to an earlier version rather than taking apart the version you’re working on.

December 6 – Testing & Final refinements
December 13 – Final Project presentations

No other assignments will be due from here on out, you will work on your Final Project only. Bring it to class every week.

Native Apps: Built in Objective-C (iOS)

What the heck is Xcode?

Xcode is Apple’s powerful integrated development environment for creating great apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Xcode includes the Instruments analysis tool, iOS Simulator, and the latest Mac OS X and iOS SDKs.*

Xcode is the complete toolset for building OS X and iOS applications — and with Xcode 4, the tools have been redesigned to be faster, easier to use, and more helpful than ever before. The Xcode IDE understands your project’s every detail, identifies mistakes in both syntax and logic, and will even fix your code for you. Quite simply, Xcode 4 will help you write better code.

* SDK: Software Development Kit
