What has changed since these videos were recorded? (What’s New in iOS 5.x )

  • There is no Interface Builder as a separate tool, Now this is part of XCode available as Storyboard.
  • There are many updates in iOS 5, specially memory management.
  • Details column below shares my experience trying these examples on Xcode 4.3.x.
  • There are no Window based application templates while you create new project.

    Sir, it would be really helpful if you could index videos related to db management apart from sqlite, such as XML Parser, Xcode to PHP to MySQL server etc.

    All videos are awesome.. was really of great help….took a just yesterday and found it really helpful

  3. Hi, I found the iPhone SQL tutorials useful and well structured. Where can I download the sample source from to compare it with my notes. From You Tube with more substantive tutorials you can’t see the entire code on a single screen and hard to check for omissions. Having the source to compare is vital.

    Many thanks, great work and well paced.

  4. hi,
