Creating an IOS App in a Semester?

Posted 01 February 2013 - 03:57 PM

IOS uses Objective-C and is developed in X Code.

My team knows some C++ and some java.

Whats the feasibility of creating a basic Iphone app for a semester long project? Would have to learn Objective-C as we go along. Nothing to crazy.

Any simple ideas?

I don't need to sell it in the app store, just a working app to use to solve a issue. Thanks

"Hello world" is a basic app. So yeah, you should be able to do it.

I built a multi-screen, swipe enabled WinPhone8 app in 4 weeks from an on-line course.

I would expect that with a team and a semester you should get something working.

And if you can't - change career and educational paths before throwing more good money after bad.

I just finished doing this for a master's degree, yes it's possible and feasible if you have the tenacity and fortitude. You may want to look into Xamarin Studio for OS X if you can't get a grasp for Objective-C, as it allows you to write in C# and it does the compiling into Objective-C for you. It also directly integrates with Xcode, so if you choose a storyboarding app (such as tabbed view storyboard) you can easily do an app in a semester. I did mine solo with drawing, device integration (printers, etc), WebView document handling, etc, in just under 60 days.

Why a semester? try a week. the longer the harder (no pun intended)

the for dummies books work best

It's also very easy...and if you already know c++, you should know at least SOME C.....so you are already that much closer considering objc is a subset of C. Also, if you cannot grasp objective-c, you can always use objective-c++ for when using the c++ functions and other stuff...just use a .mm file.
