Co-authored by Alex Vollmer, author of the Evri iPhone app and the PeepCode Screencast on MacRuby.

After months of production and over a year of anticipation, it’s the first PeepCode Screencast on native iPhone application development!

The iPhone is possibly the most revolutionary computer device of the last few years. The good news is you can learn to write native applications for it! Learn the ins and outs with our iPhone development tutorial.

Programming applications for the iPhone is radically different from writing web applications, but we’ll take you through both the high-level concepts and the line-by-line code to understand it. While many tutorials show only fragmentary examples or trivial applications, we’ll walk through a visual news application that fetches data from a web service and displays it with both custom and stock views.

The 78 minute iPhone View Controllers tutorial covers:

  • Conceptual Overview
  • View Controller Basics
  • Callbacks
  • Code: Setup
  • Tab Bar Controller Concepts
  • Code: Tab Bar Controller
  • Navigation Controller Concepts
  • Code: Thumbnail Navigation Controller
  • Code: Web View Controller
  • To Be Continued…

See the graphic below for a full list of chapters and sub-sections.

You’ll do best if you’ve watched our Objective-C toturial screencast first.

Available as part of a PeepCode Unlimited subscription (including streaming on our iOS app!) Business plans are also available.

Uses icons by Joseph Wain / glyphish.com and the HTTPRiot REST library.
