starting iPhone developmentJune 25, 2011
I can not remember if I have wrote a blog post about the fact I am starting the process of learning iPhone app development but last week I did start. Last month I had already applied and set up my Apple developer account but with the joys of getting married all my efforts in starting the journey of learning iPhone development was put on hold.
Now when I installed Xcode I wanted to learn the native way to code application which meant learning the objective C programming language. I downloaded a few books and after talking to my fellow web designer Harry at work i settled on the book Learning iPhone Programming (O’Reilly) by Alasdair Allan.
I started straight away learning this new tools, phonegap was easy to download and install, and JQTouch was easy to install but i did have a bit of an issue of how to implement it, The documentation is a bit light for JQTouch but a quick search on Google and you will find everything you need.
After I set it up within an afternoon I had set up a very rough iPhone app which had a picture of myself and two pages, which where about me and contact. I found it very easy to set up and have ideas about what I want to do. The only thing that I have noticed is that I think that I will have to find another framework to use if I want to create iPhone games, which is my ultimate goal.
I will continue to post updates of how I am getting on, my first proper app will be an app for a photography company.This entry was posted in iPhone Development. Bookmark the permalink. ← 2011 redesign No.55 Mad ON:House →
