Learn to develop powerful iOS and WatchOS applications by harnessing the full potential of Swift 2
About This Video
The number of smartphone users is increasing every single day, and as more and more of them are looking for new and interesting ways to improve their lives through mobile applications, the need for a language that will deploy on all platforms has become a necessity. This is where Swift 2 steps in, a beautifully crafted and evolving language released by Apple and used across iOS, WatchOS, tvOS, and MacOS native applications. Swift brings additional functionality and stability to your applications, allowing you to create new and exciting ideas with ease.
This step-by-step guide will help you craft beautiful, well-structured, and stable applications and help you bring innovation to life. As soon as we begin, we'll take a look at what it takes to integrate third-party libraries into our project using CocoaPods, see what the pros and cons are, and get to know how we can set our criteria on suitable libraries.
Throughout the course, we will delve deep into topics such as animation on views and layers, powering strongly data driven and location-driven applications using CoreData and MapKit, integrating our application with WatchOS, and sharing code and data between each application. Finally, we will test our application using Unit Tests and UI Tests, then walk through the process of submitting it to the App Store.
This course truly covers a vast range of topics, providing a hands-on guide throughout each subject area, and ensuring you have the right tools and knowledge to create an advanced-level application. By the end of this course, you will be able to develop iOS applications using Swift 2 and work with some of the more advanced developer frameworks.
