Hi! Make a new subclass of UIViewController, for example "PageViewController", and programmatically add the required views.

I stripped the code down to the smallest possible working example, but you will need to take care of memory leaks etc.

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

@interface PageController : UIViewController {
UIImageView *imageView;
UITextView *textView;

@property (nonatomic, retain) UIImageView *imageView;
@property (nonatomic, retain) UITextView *textView;


#import "PageController.h"

@implementation PageController

@synthesize imageView;
@synthesize textView;

- (void)loadView {

UIScrollView *contentView = [[UIScrollView alloc] initWithFrame:[[UIScreen mainScreen] applicationFrame]];
[contentView setContentSize:CGSizeMake(320, 650 + 100)];

CGRect r;
r.origin.x = 0;
r.origin.y = 0;
r.size.width = 320;
r.size.height = 650;
imageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:r];
imageView.image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"apple.jpg"];

r.origin.y = 650;
r.size.height = 100;
textView = [[UITextView alloc] initWithFrame:r];
textView.backgroundColor = [UIColor blueColor];
textView.text = @"Hello, world";

[contentView addSubview:imageView];
[contentView addSubview:textView];

self.view = contentView;
[contentView release];

- (void)dealloc {
[imageView removeFromSuperview];
[textView removeFromSuperview];
self.imageView = nil;
self.textView = nil;
[super dealloc];


Hope this helps :)
