    Hey everyone I'm new to the forum and could use some advice.

    I've been tasked with updating an iPad app that was developed by someone else.

    Can someone give me a quick rundown on how to get the existing app loaded into xCode?

    I've spent MANY MANY hours already trying to figure this out on my own but I'm getting nowhere...


    I appreciate it!

    The previous developer will, more than likely, have created the app using an Xcode project. This will be a folder containing all the source code files, resources, etc. You need to get a hold of that in order to make any changes to the app.

    Usually in the first (root) folder of the project, there is a file with an extension of .xcodeproj that you can double click.

    Dejo, thanks very much! The whole time I was thinking I could pull the source files from the member account.

    Now I'm off to hunt it down...
