Property List-Driven Apps with Swift 1.2!
Complete Video Tutorial Series Now Available!
Wow. How’s that image for an entrance to this article. It wasn’t *supposed* to be that big, but I won’t deny it has an impact. So yes, subscribers now have access to this latest iOS and Swift 1.2 video tutorial! (tomorrow anyone interested in buying Lifetime Access can).
Its a little hard to describe the utter coolness of this project because on the surface I know it seems like it’s JUST a lesson on Property lists, but I promise, that’s just a jumping off point from countless apps I can’t even imagine. If you’re an app developer, ask yourself this….
- Have you ever wanted to update an app without resubmitting a new build to Apple? (for me, thats a big CHECK)
- Have you ever wanted to dynamically display web pages in your app, each with the potential to contain embeds of YouTube videos, Vimeo video, Vine embeds, images, etc. (CHECK, CHECK)
- Or have you ever thought about pulling in data from a web page into your app, perhaps with a little sprinkle of PHP? (before teaching this course, I’ll admit not, but now that I know how I totally would).
This course teaches all that. And most importantly, you’re storing all your data in a Property List that can have sections, and subsections, to organize all the content. So users can navigate to different topics / divisions of whatever content you want to display. And since you’re displaying it via a web view (essentially a browser-bar less Safari window), you can incorporate content you already have on a website. You might have one file on your site (like… video_player.php), and load it differently each time using a query string variable (which looks like this… video_player.php?video_ID=1243423). So your Property List data could be as simple as a title to display the name of what you’re embedding and an ID. So you could embed video files, images, instagram posts, map data, really anything!
