In earlier chapters, I’ve waxed poetic about storyboards, but I haven’t really (completely) shown you why I find them so appealing. Now it’s time for you to experience the reason yourself.

As I say earlier in the book, the storyboard is basically about working with view controllers. In this chapter, I show you how to extend your storyboard to lay out the flow, or the user experience architecture of most of your application, or at least the big pieces of the app, such as the Content controller, which lets you choose what you want to do. You also add the structure for the user to find out the weather forecast for the destination, find events that are happening at the destination, bring up a map, and find a location on a map.
