A nice feature on iOS is the ability to share just about anything to anywhere using the built in sharing system. To achieve this in applications you can use the UIActivityViewController. I will show you how in this tutorial.
Prototype cells in iOS tables do have a learning curve for those not familiar with how they work. I’m going to show you how to create and use them without the pain. Learn once, use many!
More and more iOS applications now have their own internal web browser using UIWebView to get around multi-tasking issues on the devices. I’m going to show you how you too can include a simple web viewer in an application. Perfect for things like online help pages or sign-up account creation without taking the user away from your application.
At some point every application developer has to start dealing with writing and reading to and from the file system, which is actually pretty straight forward with iOS 8. Here is a super simple example using a basic string. We will get more complex in the future!
There are some things you will most likely use a lot, it seems that one of those is the UIPickerView. This is pretty straight forward to start using, so let’s take a look.
In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a UIPickerView control and power it up with some simple data, this is just a place to start from, as always there is a long journey ahead. Another plus is that if you have not been exposed to delegation and protocols then you will be now 🙂
