How To Build iPhone Apps – S01E04: Your XCode Project Files Demystified

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!

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.

In the last video, we learned about the Model View Controller design pattern that all iOS apps are based off of. In this episode, we take a look at the XCode project we created in Episode 1 and what role each of the files play in our XCode project.

At the end this episode, it will make sense to you what those XCode files represent!

    Anyone tried the Devomobiron Secrets (google search it)? I've heard numerous awesome things about this popular make money iphone & android apps creation tutorial.

    Chris these powerpoint are awesome and I am liking the series so far!

    It's still astonish me just how lots of people don't know about Devomobiron Secrets (just search it on google) although a lot of people make money from their first iphone & android apps creation without any programming experience at all using it. Thanks to my personal friend who told me about it. I've earned tons of money by selling my own made mobile apps.

    Don't have Viewcontroller.xib, possibly due to newer version of XCode?
