Hey guys...

As I said before, I'm working on iPhoneDevCentral.org - a new tool for anybody to view (hopefully) a full database of tutorials about the iPhone SDK. Anyone is welcome to submit their videos to me so I can post them for people to view.

Anyway..

I have made a Simple "Hello World" Tutorial that uses the UILabel Class. I will discuss how to work with the style of font on the labels, creating transparent backgrounds for the labels, font color, initiating the label onto the main screen of the iphone and more. It's about a 16 minute tutorial. I also discuss the basic syntax of creating functions.

Let me know what you think. (Of course this is BASIC)...I'm hoping I will be receiving more tutorials (Basic, intermediate, and advanced ones) so I can upload them to my site so other people can enjoy them.

My next tutorial, I will be getting into creating lists.

Anyway, the link to the Hello World App Tutorial is below:

http://rednovacorp.info/~iphonede/iphonetutorials/HelloWorldApp/HelloWorldApp.zip

Hopefully in a couple of hours my new domain should transfer over and it can be found at

http://www.iphonedevcentral.org/iphonetutorials/HelloWorldApp/HelloWorldApp.zip

Otherwise click the first link above..

Thanks for the great tutorial, its the first tutorial that I felt like I really was able to get a lot out of it and understand the workings of the iPhone SDK a little bit more.

Great stuff.

But one suggestion is not to type out the other examples of function calls, etc. in other languages. It can be confusing as subconsciously I am memorizing the syntax for the other languages (or you are reminding me about other languages and then I get confused if that is the way to do it in ObjC or what).

Just some feedback from a newbie watching this.

Thanks!

Hello,
First I'd like to say thanks for posting this tutorial. Second can we start a list of places that have very basic resources for someone who is not a programmer like myself? I'm a designer. And My strengths are in designing interfaces but would like to learn how to build my own app.

Thanks in advance.

There has been a few changes to the website, if you go to http://iphonedevcentral.org/ you should be able to find that tutorial and many others.

Hi created a sightly more complex hello world tutorial which covers the use of UIButtons and handling a button click.

http://knol.google.com/k/usman-ismail/iphone-sdk-helloworld/34oprzanmpe7q/5#H0-HelloWorld

Its a bit raw so please leave feedback and I will correct any problems.

What kind of app are you looking to build, unfortunately the tutorials are a bit spread out at the moment.

Maybe you should send him a message about this. You will probably get a response a lot quicker than posting here, especially since this is an older thread.

I believe that the website was sold over to Nitrex, right?

I dont know if this is gonna help anyone but this would have given me some direction had I read it before. All newbies including me jus downloaded SDKs straightway and started playing around with it.. I think I should have done more in the start. This article summerized my pain! http://imandroid.org/2009/05/13/getting-started-developing-a-mobile-app/
