iPhone Tutorial Three – Simple Gesture Recognizer and Storyboard

iPhone Tutorial One — Introduction to Storyboarding
iPhone Tutorial Two — Combining UITabBarControllers, UITableViews and UINavigationControllers using Storyboard

Alright guys, it has been quite some time since I posted an iPhone tutorial. This one wont go too in depth, but it will show some simple Gesture Recognizer applications, while putting it all together in a functioning application that you could really use. I’ll start this off with a short reason as to what lead me to do this tutorial.

A friend of mine started up a blog with a friend of his about technology and how this technology is changing how we operate on a day-to-day basis. Their site is Hacking Humanity, and their information will be given at the bottom of this tutorial. Now I was really thinking of doing a tutorial that used the WordPress API, however I felt like doing an API tutorial, while some people are still in their infancy in learning Xcode 4.2 and Storyboarding, was a bad idea. So now, we will be creating a simple Web-based application that uses gesture controls instead of actual buttons. Now, you have to understand, this application will be using websites that are built for mobile platforms, hence there will be no need for horizontal scrolling, which is what makes these gestures useful.

20,000+ Blog Views!

So as I am studying crazily for my Software Engineering midterm I notice I hit 20,000 blog views (well, 19,989 as of writing this). I know that may not seem like much compared to the world’s population, but damn am I excited. It only took 6 months, and I thought it was going to take a year to reach a thousand! So to show my graditude, I drew this for you guys in my Rockstar’d, sleep deprived state that I am in– an artists depiction (and a good one at that) of me giving you all a thumbs up for being so awesome:


Feel free to drop a comment below, telling everyone how awesome you are. I am planning on doing an application from start to App Store soon with storyboarding, just need to see if I am legally permitted to do so.

Always remember to donate if I help you guys out! I appreciate every penny I get, and hopefully I can get a new iPad 2 to replace the one that got stolen.

You guys are great!

iPhone Tutorial One — Introduction to Storyboarding

Okay guys, well I figured I would start off my using of Xcode 4.2 with this blog post. I have never used Xcode 4.2 before this, so let us see how intuitive storyboarding really is. I am not going to go into detail of what “@property” and “@synthesize” are, I am assuming you already know basic coding. If enough people ask, I will explain everything.

So let’s start out with a Hello World application.

My Poor iPad 2..

So this weekend my apartment was broken into, and my iPad 2 along with Macbook Pro charger and iPod Touch were stolen, along with my car keys and wallet. Luckily my car is still here. I really hope we find them, however I really don’t think this will happen.

If you own an iDevice, turn on Find My Phone, a feature in iOS4+ within the settings. Don’t be like me

I really just wish I was smart enough to put a lock on my iPad or iPod Touch, however I’m one of those people that never loses anything, so why would I need to lock it?

If anyone would like to contribute to help raise funds to buy a new iPad and/or iPod Touch, I would greatly appreciate it, however positive comments will do as well.
