When creating reminders in the Reminders app, you may find it useful to organize them into separate lists such as a personal to-do list, a list for a pet's vaccination and worming schedules, and a work to-do list.

A reader who regularly uses the new predictive text feature of QuickType in iOS 8 emailed iPhone Life asking how he could edit the suggested words. He said he had inadvertently accumulated several misspelled or unwanted words that pop up before the word he really wants. He asks if there's a way to edit or remove unwanted words that predictive text presents. Indeed there are some solutions, but unfortunately no solution that lets one directly edit the list of words.

Unleash Your Inner App Developer Part 7: The Big Picture

image

Do you have an idea for an app but lack the programming knowledge to begin building it? In this weekly blog series, How To Unleash Your Inner App Developer, I will take you, the non-programmer, step by step through the process of creating apps for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Join me each week on this adventure, and you will experience how fun turning your ideas into reality can be! This is Part 7 of the series. If you're just getting started now, check out the beginning of the series here (this post has been updated to Swift, iOS 8 and Xcode 6)

In my last several posts, we have created a prototype app called iAppsReview that allows users to rate apps on their iOS devices. Whenever you build an app, it's a best practice to first create a prototype that you can give to your client or potential user base for feedback. You often need to make changes to the prototype based on the feedback you receive. However, once the dust has settled, you need to turn the prototype into a real app. This requires writing code. Since this blog series is specifically designed for non-programmers, we need to take a step back and look at the big picture of app development and learn the basics of writing code.
