Learn How to Build iOS Apps from Scratch

image

Have you always wanted to build an iOS app, but lacked the knowledge and skills? Have you ever signed up for an online course on creating iOS apps, only to feel frustrated because the content was out of date or not comprehensive enough? Are you dying to learn more about Swift and programming for the Apple Watch? It's a story we hear all the time at iPhone Life. And that's why we decided to partner with iPhone app expert, former Apple employee, and adjunct professor at RIT Paul Solt to make his iOS development courses available to iPhone Life readers at a big discount.



Lock in Trade-in Pricing on Your iPad Before October 16

Apple had a lot to announce on September 9, even bringing Steve Jobs's "One More Thing" phrase out to introduce the Apple Watch. So it's understandable that updated iPads or Macs weren't discussed. However, another announcement is less than a week away on October 16.



Tip of the Day: Easily Add Up To 20 Widgets to Your iPhone or iPad

image

iOS 8 finally brought the ability to customize the iPhone and iPad interface by allowing you to add widgets to the Today screen in Notification Center. In an earlier post, I explained the simple steps for doing this. You simply swipe down from the top of the display to view the Notification Center and tap on the Edit button at the very bottom. This reveals widgets that are associated with apps that you already have installed on your device. You simply tap on the green button to add a widget.

Vidget (free) is different. Instead of being an app such as ESPN Sport Center with an associated widget, its sole function is to let you easily add a bunch of widgets to your Today screen, with about 20 different widgets currently available.

Your Gadgets' Best Friend: The SeV Revolution Plus TEC Jacket [Review]

image

I love the changing of the seasons. In fact October is one of my favorite months here in the US. From coast to coast, temperatures are cooling down, trees are lighting up with brilliant colors, and there's a refreshing nip to the air. With the return of the cooler weather, many of us are rummaging through our closets, as we put away our warm weather gear and search for our winter wear. If you are in the market for a new winter jacket (or if you're contemplating giving a warm jacket to that special someone) have I got an amazing recommendation for you!



TIP: Browse the Web Privately With iOS 8

image

While each new version of iOS introduces plenty of new features, sometimes Apple just changes the way things are done, often without any explanation. One such example is Private Browsing. Previously, there was a Privacy button at the bottom of Safari, when viewing an index of favorites. With iOS 8, that's gone.
