What’s the iOS Apprentice?
The iOS Apprentice is a series of epic-length tutorials for beginners that each show you how to build a complete app from scratch.
If you’ve signed up for my monthly iOS newsletter, you’ve already received a free copy of Matthijs’s first epic-length tutorial in this series.
Well good news for you – now there are two more tutorials in the series, and the entire series has been completely updated for iOS 5!
The first of the new tutorials is called Checklists and shows you how to make a simple “to-do” app for the iPhone. In the process, you’ll learn about storyboards, table views, navigation controllers, arrays and dictionaries, saving data, and much more!
The second of the new tutorials is called MyLocations and shows you how to make an app that tags photos by location and plots them on the map. In the process, you’ll learn about map kit, Core Data, tab bar controllers, animation, and much more.
My favorite thing about these tutorials is that they are extremely high quality. Matthijs has done an excellent job making these really easy to read and understand, while at the same time digging down into the details you need to know to make real-world apps.
