A few users having trouble with the latest release of Xcode. Xcode 4.2, which came out recently with iOS 5.
How cool is Siri?!
Anyways, the process is actually easier than it was in Xcode 4, as we now have the option to create an ‘Empty Application’ that has no reference to a XIB file at all.
There is also an awesome new feature called ‘Automatic Reference Counting’ (ARC) in Xcode 4.2 that essentially allows us to ignore memory management. Great feature for novice developers.
Dapp doesn’t support this feature yet .. because the generated code has all the needed memory management code that ARC really doesn’t like. Any ‘memory management’ related calls will cause a build error.
I can see the value this would have for our novice programmer users, so I’ll be making sure the next version of Dapp has the option of exporting code that has no memory management included.
Enjoy the very very brief video tutorial!
Oh!.. I’ve said this about 50 times in the tutorial , but it’s very short because it’s a modified version of our Xcode 4 Advanced Hello World tutorial for Xcode 4.2. The original tutorial will take you through how to use the tableview object to create what is shown in this tutorial. It can be found at:
P.S. Technology is only a small part of your app success. There is the business, sales and marketing that you need to think of too :). Which is why I also provide a bunch of free education on how to succeed on the App Store - http://kerofrog.com :).
