    I have a new concept for an APP..
    All of the code I already have, but I need to work on the interface,
    Anyone here know how I make my program look exactly like the terminal?
    I want such a background will be black, the text will be white colored and computer-like font.
    I need that the user can write information and stuff as usual ..
    Anyone know how you can build such a thing?
    Thanks in advance, Tal.

    What have you already tried?

    Using UITextView or maybe UIWebView would seem to be the way to create a view with scrolling text. If those don't work then I think you have to write your own UIView subclass that does this.

    Do you require that the user can type into the view? Maybe UITextView can do this but I think you'll need a custom view.

    You could use NSString's drawAtPoint to draw any color, size, font text anywhere on the display. Just start with a your choice of color filled rectangle.
