Learn to make iOS apps even if you have absolutely no programming experience. This hands-on book takes you from idea to App Store, using real-world examples--such as driving a car or eating at a restaurant--to teach programming and app development. You'll learn concepts through clear, concise, jargon-free language. This book focuses on Apple's new programming language, Swift. Each lesson is divided into two parts: the lecture portion explains the terms and concepts through examples, and the exercise portion helps you apply these concepts while building real-world apps, like a tip calculator. Learn how to think differently--and see the world from a whole new perspective. * Learn the basic building blocks of programming* Dive into the Swift programming language* Make apps for iPhone and iPad* Use GPS in your app to find a user's location* Take or select photos with your app* Integrate your app with Facebook and Twitter* Submit your app to the App Store* Manage and market your app on the App Store
