1. Hello iPhone

Before you can master any skill, you must first become comfortable with the tools. In this chapter, we will learn how to use Xcode, the primary development tool for iOS applications. We will start by using Xcode to create a new project from the Utility Application project template. We will then examine the files produced by this template, studying how the different pieces of a typical iOS application fit together. Once we are familiar with the template, we will expand it, using Xcode’s graphical interface editor to add controls and to draw connections between these controls and their actions. This exercise will provide a solid foundation for working on the more complex projects in later chapters.
