This Specialization focuses on the basics of iOS application development. You’ll gain the skills you need to create your own app, including fluency in Objective-C and UIKit and SpriteKit user interface concepts, and you’ll learn to leverage networking, security, audio, video, location, and sensor frameworks. In the final Capstone Project, you’ll apply your skills to create a networked game that leverages sensors on the phone to create a unique gaming experience, and that you can showcase in job applications and interviews or offer in the iTunes store.

Incentives & Benefits

When you complete this Specialization, you’ll have a strong foundation in Objective-C and mobile app design. You’ll be ready to take more advanced iOS courses, and you’ll have built a working app that you can showcase in job applications and interviews and offer in the iTunes store.

What You'll Learn

  • Build fluency in Objective-C, UIKit, and SpriteKit
  • Leverage networking, security, audio, video, location, and sensor frameworks
  • Create a unique, professional-quality networked game

Recommended Background

 

★★★☆☆ (3) 4 weeks 22nd Oct, 2018
An introduction to the Objective-C programming language. This will prepare you for more extensive iOS app development and build a foundation for advanced iOS development topics. Objective-C programming requires a Mac laptop or desktop computer. An iOS device is optional if the learner is willing to working exclusively with the simulator. Some learners have been able to work with an OS X virtual machine on Windows, but explaining how to do that is beyond the scope of this course. Upon completing this course, you will be able to: 1. Read and write Objective-C 2. Have a strong grasp of Objective-C objects 3. Organize their code professionally using objects and blocks 4. Prototype several entry-level apps
★★★★★ (1) 4 weeks 5th Nov, 2018
You will learn to develop sophisticated user interfaces for iOS, with a focus on user interface design best practices, UI animations, and responsive design. You will learn about the key UI widgets, mapping interfaces and view restoration.

You will learn to make fluid digital interactive experiences that are suitable for gaming and use the advanced sensor hardware built into the iPhone and iPad. This includes drawing 2D graphics, playing sounds and music, integrating with Game Center, the iOS physics engine and detecting device orientation and location. Upon completing this course, you will be able to: 1. Use the reverse geocode service to convert latitude and longitude to location names 2. Implement GeoFences to make an app efficiently monitor an iOS device’s location 3. Leverage the power of accelerometers, magnetometers and gyroscopes to orient a device in physical space 4. Create an app that responds to ambient light levels by using screen brightness as a proxy 5. Play sound effects and other media as audio 6. Make a game like Pong 7. Make a game like Breakout 8. Manipulate graphics in a game environment 9. Use the physics engine to create realistic game worlds 10. React to multi-touch events for complex interaction design 11. Detect and respond to collisions and contacts efficiently 12. Chain complex sequences of actions, animations and sounds with precision 13. Animate multi-frame sprites 14. Create particle systems to simulate fire, smoke and magic (and more!) 15. Interface with Game Center to create leaderboards and achievements that can be shared through social networks

An introduction to the Swift programming language. This will prepare you for more extensive iOS app development and build a foundation for advanced iOS development topics. Upon completing this course, you will be able to: 1. Associate the relationship of Swift and Objective-C and their use in iOS and Mac (OS X) programming 2. Develop the ability to read and write Swift code 3. Distinguish how both programming languages can be used together in applications 4. Demonstrate how to write applications entirely in Swift with the help from several iOS programming samples 5. Determine how Swift can be used for development on new platforms such as Apple Watch and Apple TV 6. Create a working client-server iPhone application with location services that you can add to your portfolio.
