Today I learnt the fundamentals of Xcode. We started off with simply making a single view application, which a type of starting template for Xcode
The next step was to choose what language to use. I used Objective.C and then named my Project. When creating an app its a good idea to research the features and decide what version of iOS the user needs to have. After Deciding what version you want to use you can select it in this menu. At the bottom there is a option to choose an extra Frameworks and libraries. This is basically a way to add extra preset modification to your app. In this test run i added MapKit and CoreLocation Frameworks. These added a map and a way to find your location on the app. later on the use of this would come into play. This is your final step in creating your app template, as well as choosing where to save it of course.
After creating my template i learnt about the simple folders that are inside a view controller. These are known as “ViewController.h,ViewController.m and Main.storyboard”.
The “ViewController.h (which stands for header) is basically an index for your code That kinda points to everything that needs to be run. The “ViewController.m” is basically where your app executes all your code. The “Main.storyboard’ is where you can get a visual representation of your app. I like to look at it like a viewmode.
