iOS Training Roadmap

One common question that I often receive from customers is whether they should attend the Foundation of iPhone Programming course first or the iPad Programming course first if their sole intention is to develop for the iPad.

To help simplify the decision-making process, I have published a road map to help you decide which is the right course for you. Download this document and let me know if you have questions!

SMS Bubble UI in iPhone Apps

Users of iPhone are no stranger to the built-in SMS application that displays your messages using cute little bubbles. However, this innovative UI feature is not exposed to the iPhone developers - you have to create it yourself if you want to have the same look-and-feel of the SMS application. Creating this UI - which I will call the Bubble UI, allow you to represent information in a conversational style. A good application of this is when you are creating a chat application. Messages exchanged between two persons can be shown in message bubbles.

In this article, I will walk you through the steps to create an UI that is similar to the SMS application.
