How To Build iPhone Apps – S01E03: iOS Architecture Model View Controller (MVC)

Learn How To Build iPhone and iPad Apps. A video tutorial series aimed at beginners. Step by step tutorials to build your skills in iOS Development!

We describe some MVC examples and the responsibilities of each role as well as how each part in the MVC design pattern communicates with each other.

S01E01 – Introduction, Demo App and Installing XCode

S01E02 – XCode Interface Introduction and Tutorial

The goal is to get apps submitted into the Apple App Store and to have fun doing it! I will teach you the basics of using XCode, architecting iPhone and iPad applications, designing the user interface, coding it in Objective C, all the way to monetizing it and putting it into the Apple App Store.

This first tutorial series of videos is going to teach you the basics of iOS development before we can get into some serious app building. We’re going to build a basic iPhone demo app together step by step to teach you the basic building blocks of iOS development. By the end of this series (approximately 8 videos) you’ll have a good understanding of what an iPhone view is comprised of and how to put different user interface elements on the screen and make them respond to the user’s touch.

    Hi there Chris! I just wanted to let you know that I think it is brilliant that you are doing this video series. I have just started working with VisualStudio at high school and when I wanted to start working in Xcode I was a little overwhelmed. I also really liked when you said "I want to teach you how to fish, rather than giving you the fish", because as you said most people just say follow these steps in other videos on YouTube. Looking forward for more, keep up the good work! πŸ™‚

    Hello MrCdashlo! Unfortunately the crash logs you've provided don't mean too much to me and I'm unfamiliar with buzztouch. The email from the Apple review actually reveals what the source of the problem is. I would suggest that you get XCode 4.6 and run your application in the iOS 6.1 iPhone simulator to see why it is crashing. Hopefully that will reveal more information and lead you to the real source of the crash.
    Good luck!

    Recently my friend has been helping me develop an app for my program through xcodes and buzztouch. unfortunately, once he submitted the APP through apple, it was rejected through the message state below. is there anything you can help with? I am in desperate need in getting this app up and running.
    We found that your app crashed on iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1, which is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines.
    Your app crashed when we launch the app.
