If you have played out a game, or made use of an app which you thought you can develop or improve on, then iPhone app development can be a great way to utilize your creativity. If you choose to sell your iPhone app for a price, and it succeeds, then you can certainly become a part of the industry which makes millions of dollars worth of apps each month. But how will you do this, well below are the things that you can actually do to go through the entire iPhone app development.
You should have several things ready first just before you start the developing process, and the first thing you will need is an idea. You also have to have an Intel base Mac PC, an iPhone simulator and a software development kit (SDK). All these things can be downloaded to your PC, but eventually it will help you put your app on your very own iPhone or iPod touch so that you can see how the app works on the actual device.
You may download SDK for free at the apple developer site. Once you get to the site, you have to click on the Dev Center tab and become a registered iPhone developer. In the Dev Center you can find information for documentation and sample codes; this is also where you can find the button to download SDK.
Right after downloading, the most important content in your folder will likely be the Xcode as this is the base for creating your apps. When you start the Developer app, drag Xcode to dock, then you are now ready to start.
Click Xcode and once a window displays, you will have your user interface builder in front of you. Head to the tab: “file”, make use of the drop down menu and choose “New Project”. You may then be provided with options for various templates which match to the type of app you wish to make. The best choice for beginners is the Window based App and from that, you can then start making your app by applying texts or labels.
Next, you have to start coding, this usually seems difficult at first, but it just takes some time to become accustomed to the language. In case you don’t know yet, “objective C” is the programming language used to make all iPhone apps.
If you have an idea for a certain app, then spend the time to understand the coding or the programming for iPhone app development, and watch as your talent and ideas appear in the lives of others.
