anyone have any good sources for documentation for creating UI thats a little less tech geek than the official stuff. I'm working with some very beginning iOS programmers and they get a little overwhelmed by some of the language. I've been trying to search but I'm just not hitting the right keywords and end up with app reviews etc

in particular something like the UIs in Flipboard and DiscovrMusic.

thanks

I don’t think any documentation exists other than the official documentation.

I'll recommend looking at Raywenderlich.com for tutorials on building UIs.

Duplicating Flipboard is not a beginner task. You can learn about animations from the docs and tutorials. Flipboard almost certainly uses OpenGL, which is a 3D animation engine. You can find sample code and tutorials on OpenGL online but it's not a beginner API.

thanks for the website. I'll definitely take a look.
