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

Whether or not you watched our first iPhone Tutorials, you’ll be able to jump straight into iPhone views in this screencast.

We dive deep into the visual controls and displays in the native iPhone SDK. You’ll learn how to use buttons, text fields, activity indicators and more.

We start with code from an existing project and build on it to post API updates, build custom text input cells, and create custom text views for maximal usability.

Unlike other tutorials, you’ll learn to build a fully-functioning, useful application. And it’s packed full of the explanatory motion graphics and useful diagrams that you’ve come to expect from a PeepCode production!

Our iPhone Views tutorial covers:

  • Cocoa View Basics
  • Built-in Read-only Views
  • Built-in Interactive Controls
  • Visual Text Input Cell Layout
  • Wiring it Together with the Tweet Controller
  • Improving Inputs with a Custom Text View Delegate
  • Creating a Custom Progress Indicator

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

You’ll do best if you’ve watched our Objective-C tutorial screencast and iPhone View Controller tutorial screencasts, but they aren’t required.

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


Assumes basic knowledge of the Objective-C programming language and at least an introductory knowledge of iPhone programming (as presented in our other iPhone videos).
