Summary

This chapter was way more exciting than expected! A reminders app is absolutely not quite as impressive as Angry Birds, but, making use of the location features of a mobile device made it a little more novel. Along the way we dabbled with these things:

  • Reading and writing data to the special documents folder
  • Use of pickers for straightforward lists, dates, and time
  • Reading the current location of the device
  • Setting up of local notification events

In the best of cases, you can manage to make a mobile app in a few hours or days, but there is quite a lot that goes on before you can submit the app to the various app stores. Sounds like a good topic for the next chapter!
