It was another productive day today as I have started to learn the basics of iOS! Xcode is admittedly pretty daunting but after following Apple’s ‘starter tutorial’ I am starting to at least know what a few buttons do! The tutorial helped me make a super basic 'Hello World app’ that allows you to type in your name, then after pressing a button a label will say “Hello x”. It took me a couple hours to figure out that after spending a lot of time making sure the code was perfect I forgot to make the label big enough, so text would be obscured and “…” would be displayed. It didn’t twig as I just assumed it was my coding skills that let me down, but luckily I eventually noticed after a while of banging my head against the wall.
It isn’t what I want my app to look like obviously but I had to learn the basics to start the ball rolling. So more tutorials and reading up is needed now! Step by step.
